How Come SanDisk Is So Expansive? And PNY Costs Less? For USB Flash Drives

For a PNY a
8 GB Costs $8.
16 GB Costs $7.
32 GB Costs $16.
64 GB Costs $28.

For a SanDisk:
8 GB Costs $7.
16 GB Costs $14.
32 GB Costs $25.
64 GB Costs $35.

How come SanDisk is so costly sometimes and PNY is low price and affordable.

  1. Are you talking about USB Flashdrives? Sometimes the price has to do with the Warranty behind the product too

    Some USB Flash drives are smarter than others. Some have RAID inside and have much better transfer rates, etc. The price depends on this sort of thing too, not just on capacity. For example I have two Kingston drives of the same capacity. One costs twice as much as the other but it's 5 times faster.
