Yes, thereis is a difference in transfer speed; some are usb 2, 3, and so on.

I have had good long term experience with the Kingston brand.

Opinions will vary

Hi Loy,

I also like and use the Kingston ones!! They’re easy to use and anyone that I’ve ever had comes with either a cap or cover so you know that the stick is protected. Hope you can find a brand that works for you!!

Hi Loy,
 
Are you talking about flashdrives or larger USB powered drives for storing large amounts of content?  For larger USB powered drives we've had excellent luck with both the Seagate & Western Digital 4TB USB drives.  For flashdrives we've also had no problems with Kingston, Corsair PNY and several I don't recall the brand names of.
 
If you get USB anything try to get USB 3.0 speed, this speed will also be reverse compatible so it'll work with USB 2.0 ports.  But, check the documentation to make sure it's reverse compatible.

Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.

Are you asking about thumb drives or hard drives?  While I would think differences you might look for of would be similar, I suspect brands are often different.

Hmm, let's see! My preferred USB flash drive brands are Lexar, Kingston,
Onn, PNY and SanDisk!

As a horrid tinkerer, I have also used some generic/knock off brands that
have served me well too.

Hello Mike,

With regards your USB 4TB drives how much did you pay for those?

Thanks.
Dave.

Hi David,
 
I've gotten them as cheap as $80 and they're usually around $120 or so.  But, I just checked Amazon and they have a Seagate for $112 and a WD for $100.  I take it these are sale prices because they show that the Seagate is usually $130 and WD is usually $140.

I liked Gorilla drives, but they seem to have disappeared. When I discovered them, I started buying nothing but the Gorilla thumb drives, because they seemed to be the best. I liked the rubber-covered ones, which were the ones I usually saw. They had a designation, which I don't remember, because I only heard it once, back when I was searching for them. I didn't know there were other ones that weren't rubber-covered until a friend of mine got one. But anyway, they seemed to work the best of any I had had, and they fit nice and tight in the library player. They didn't wiggle like some, and I could put them in the front port if I put a paper clip on them to help pull them out. Pam.
