The storage devices come to build with many types of materials of which the metal and plastic are very common.

And, if you are like me, keeping the stuff messed up and find things in that and often end up breaking soft or delicate things that you must go with a pen drive that has a metallic body.

With that, the design does not play any significant role in improving the technical functions of the drive but since it will signify your choice and type of personality so it is worth being picky in design and color wise too.

#04 Cost

Cost or the price of the pen drive plays a very important role when it comes to the final checkout time and believes me, if you just want to match the trends over your needs then it will go really very expensive.

But if you check on the above-mentioned factors and buy one according to your requirements then you will end up getting the best pen drive at a very reasonable price. 🙂
