Custom Flash Drive Quality

Flash Drive Quality

Let the Buyer Beware

Every time we speak to a new customer regarding an opportunity for custom flash drives, PRICE becomes a factor. Let the buyer beware. Based on my own 35 years in the high tech components business that includes a few in trading products on the open market, I can assure you that there are many issues with counterfeiting and quality.

While a high price does not insure high quality, the vast majority of low price deals sadly result in problems. There are many quality manufacturers both in the US and globally. It is a very low margin business and the prices almost fluctuate daily based on supply and demand. It can even be driven by a company like Apple when they launch a new product.

Here are some of the things to be aware of:

  • Programmed to reflect greater capacity
  • Used drives marketing as new
  • Faulty boards
  • Faulty controller chips
  • Not USB 2.0
  • Slow speeds
  • Contain malware

The only way to avoid these pitfalls is to know your supplier. At MCM we are fortunate to work with some of the best, who can provide both a quality electronic device along with eye catching custom shapes. Call us for the latest pricing and delivery at 888-44-6060 or e-mail at
