Blog 2GB USB Flash Drives - The most popular USB Storage Capacity for Promotional Uses

If you’re considering using promotional USB drives for your promotion for the first time, you’re probably feeling overwhelmed at the abundance of choices.

There are so many models, colors, and styles of USBs to choose from. Even after you have selected your favorite USB Flash Drive models, you’re still left with selecting an appropriate storage capacity for your USB drives.

Some people think that having choices is a good thing. But studies after studies have confirmed that too many choices can paralyze our minds and left us feeling more confused.

When presented with choices, I usually opt for the most popular or what’s recommended by people I know and trust. With that said, what’s the most popular storage capacity for promotional USB Flash Drives?

The Most Popular Storage Capacity for Promotional USB Flash Drives

Based on Flashbay’s order history, 2GB USB Flash Drives have been outselling other capacities every year. The 1GB and 4GB drives are also quite popular. But the 2GB beat them by a wide margin! Why is the 2GB USB flash drives the clear winner?

At 2GB, it has enough memory to store critical promotional content, yet still has some storage space left for the recipients to use at their discretion. A good amount of free memory to allocate for personal use is at least 1GB.

Content You Can Preload into a 2GB Promotional USB Flash Drives

To have an idea of how much data a 2GB USB Flash Drives can hold, consider this: an MP3 music file occupies around, 4-8MB. A printable photo image file is around 2-3MB. A Music Video occupies about 50-100MB (depending on the compression method used), and a PDF document usually occupies less than 1MB.

As you can see, for most promotional uses, 2GB flash drives give you plenty of storage space!
