32GB not available for $5.99 (from Amazon), rather it's the 16GB that's $5.99.

64GB is correctly shown at $9.99

After physically breaking numerous plastic flash drives I'll only go with all-metal from now on. Not a bad deal for people who don't beat up on their drives though! 😊

Amazon is selling the microcenter drives for relatively cheap as well from this post. Haven't done any comparative research though.

You gotta love someone like that who would much rather spout off/give advice/review than spend a second to Google and learn something

I still find it retarded that they don't just show the actual capacity. Or make it with the additional capacity that would give it the full stated capacity.

If you paid for 64 gallons of gas, would you be happy only getting 57?. Not bashing you, I have always thought this standard was dumb.

Yes but this difference doesn't just exist in hard drives. Consider your'e internet speed 100mbit/s = ~12mb/s

Well, actually that might not be a good comparison. I pay for 250/20 and I am currently seeing 300+/25 sooooo, LOL

It's not retarded, it's just the difference what's definition of K. You'd better spend some time in Google for that

For whatever reason all storage manufacturers uses K=1000 which is inline with metric system which is common in everyday life.

However, Microsoft always uses K=2^10=1024 which is common in computer which uses binary system. As a result, when dividing total number of bytes using 1024, the GB shows smaller number in Windows.

Using your own example of gas, you should complain why US only provide up to 93 octane rating but you can get 99 in Europe because they are using different calculation

I understand the caculations of why the difference. It is very simple, no matter the calculation, that if the actual capacity is 57gb print that on the drive and the packaging that it comes in. Pretty simple.
