7 Cheap USB Flash Drives (Under $10), Ranked Best to Worst

  • MORE

Sure, we have cloud services now, but that doesn’t mean flash drives are obsolete. USB flash drives are easy to transport, typically inexpensive, and are helpful on those days when you need to transfer files offline no login required.

It's easy to find a 16GB flash drive with USB 3.0 for under $10 or, if speed is less important, a 32GB USB 2.0 model. To help you find the best USB flash drive under $10, we tested several popular models and rated them based on their performance and design. Below, you'll find them ranked from best to worst.

How we tested

We used our File Transfer test, which copies 4.97GB of mixed media files, from PC to USB Flash Drive, and Flash Drive to PC. We ran our tests on each flash drive three times on a Surface Book with Performance Base, and averaged the scores.

    Horrible "review" You barely say anything about why some get worse score than the others. Looks is not important. What is important is how durable/long lived they are and speeds. Also, you failed to mention that the Sandisk ultra fit have heating issues. Mine got so hot it smelt burnt plastic. And i tried it in several computers and my Raspberry Pi.

    It's weird, the write speeds for these drives is faster than the read speeds. Usually it's the other way around for flash memory. Are you certain the tests were done correctly?
