I’m actually quite surprised how chunky those USB sticks are, it certainly will not fit side-by-side with other USB devices with many computers. :disagree:

A MicroSD card measures 15x11x1mm, so 8 x 256GB MicroSD cards would fit in the space of 30x11x4mm and give a total capacity of 2TB. Add casing and circuitry and I’m sure that would still fit in the size of a typical USB stick.

With that USB ‘brick’ dimensions, two MicroSD cards would easily lay flat side-by-side (15x22mm) within the depth (21mm) and width (27mm). So let’s say with electronics, the available length is 50mm, that would provide enough space for 100 x 256GB MicroSD cards, i.e. 25TB capacity. :cool:

I remember buying an 8GB USB flash drive in 2006 for $100, that seemed like such a massive amount of storage back then considering my first PC had a 2GB 5.25" Quantum Bigfoot hard drive which was well enough for me in the 1990s… but now I can buy a 32GB drive for $9.99. The race to the bottom of prices (preserving decent quality of course) is what interests me more than the “biggest of them all” game.
