Samsung starts selling robust USB Type-C memory sticks with up to 256 GB of memory
Samsung has started selling a trio of new memory sticks, which it announced last month. As the company's screenshots show, all have USB Type-C ports rather than the still ubiquitous USB Type-A. Moreover, Samsung has equipped its new memory sticks with USB 3.2 Gen1 functionality, although they all offer USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 backwards compatibility.
Moreover, Samsung has produced 64 GB, 128 GB and 256 GB versions, all measuring 33.7 x 15.9 x 6.4 mm. Apparently, each memory stick weighs 3.4 g too, making it handy to carry multiple at once. While Samsung boasts that its new drives support up to 400 MB/s sequential read speeds, this is only true of the 128 GB and 256 GB editions. By contrast, Samsung limits the 64 GB edition to 300 MB/s for some reason.
Separately, each memory stick comes with a 5-year limited warranty and Samsung's 5-proof technology, details about which you can read on Samsung's website. Currently, the MUF-64DA starts at €14.90, with prices rising to €23.90 for the MUF-128DA. In comparison, the MUF-256DA retails for €42.90, less than 3x the price of the MUF-64DA, despite its four-fold increase in memory. All prices include taxes, for reference.
