Understanding Promotional USB memory chips can help before making your purchase as there are numerous types of memory grades.
Prices do fluctuate all the time, memory chips are sold in an auction environment like oil so prices vary with demand and that’s why we can only guarantee our Promotional USB prices for 7 days. Below is a category list of the different grades, the first is not actually a category but “Buyers Beware”
Fake Flash Memory
Due to the popularity of the Promotional Merchandise USB unfortunately this brings along the scammers that think they can make a quick buck. If the price seems too cheap then there’s a reason for that. Typically scams use poor grade chips, often labeled as a Grade A but then supply you with a lesser memory.
Here’s an example, 2GB memory chip labeled as a 8GB. When you plug this Promotional USB stick into your computer everything looks fine, showing the correct memory but it’s only when you try to download data more than 2GB you noticed the issue and the drive will show full or just simply fail.
Grade A Flash Memory
All our flash drives come with Grade A memory chips, our most popular Promotional USB stick is the Twister USB. The chips are made from top memory suppliers like Intel, Samsung and Toshiba, also fitted inside iphones, gaming consoles like PS4 and many more. Come with a long warranty, 100% reliable and fast. Ideal for critical data, running the promotional usb stick for long times and just generally he best you can get. Some companies charge a premium for such memory around 15% but at Concise Media Branding we only supply top quality.
Grade B Flash memory
This memory is normally produced by a less well-known manufacturer, or consists of generic or recycled parts. Also companies like Intel produce silicone cones (grow a large crystal of sand) that are thinly sliced, the best parts which is 100% reliable are kept for their own memory chips (known as Grade A) and the rest is sold on the open market as Grade B flash memory and sometimes Grade C.
Grade C Flash memory
These are sold by some companies although we’d highly recommend to avoid these at all costs as they’re guaranteed to fail. The reason they’re unreliable is because they use generic and recycled components with no guarantees, but if price is your critical factor and you like to gamble them maybe for you.
