What is Flash Memory?

Flash memory was named for it's ability not for saving data, but erasing data. Still, the speed at which it can do both is enough to deserve the pseudonym. The Flash memory that we most commonly use, and that is available is this category, is NAND Flash. This type of Flash memory work similar to a hard drive in that it is able to have data written and save on it. There are a lot of benefits to using Flash storage, including durability, speed, compact size, and ease of use.

What Flash memory do I need?

The most common form of Flash memory that we use today is as USB Flash or "thumb" drives. Aptly named, as most are the size of a thumb, these incredibly handy devices allow you to save and transfer files easily from one system to another, even across operating systems with the appropriate formatting. These are perfect for students who need to save their homework and transfer it back and forth between their home and school computers.

Flash memory cards come in several forms. SD, Compact Flash, and Memory Sticks are all very popular and commonly found in consumer products from handheld game systems and smartphones to digital cameras and camcorders. They are also used in digital picture frames, and it's not unusual to find laptops and desktops with built-in cards readers that accept multiple types of these Flash memory cards.
