That's "List Price" not normal price

Kingston 32GB DataTraveler USB Flash Drive - DTI/32GB - Buy.com Newegg.com - Kingston DataTraveler I 32GB USB2.0 Flash Drive Model DTI/32GB - USB Flash Drives $80 on those sites. Yes, not as cheap, but it's not that special.

Fair enough, I thought $210 sounded a bit steep anyway, but nevertheless it looked like a pretty good deal. I didn't realize the list prices were so much lower on Buy.com and Newegg. It's still not a bad price, though, for a decent amount of space.

While I have been thinking about getting a flash drive, I'd rather have a couple of smaller capacity drives than a single large one. I'd be worried about storing that much information in one place, and it's usually cheaper to just by a bunch of smaller drives anyway.

I assume it's the list price/RRP from when the product was first released, at which point 32GB drives would've been bloody expensive whereas now they're not so bad.

This looks like a better deal to me:

Newegg.com - Patriot Xporter XT Boost 32GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PEF32GUSB - USB Flash Drives Honestly though, it seems you're better off finding a good deal on a 16GB flash drive and getting two. For some reason the 32GB ones aren't priced very well. I've seen 16 GB ones on sale for $25.

Normally thumb drives do follow a steady size/price slope, but it does taper off at a certain point. Same thing with hard drives, there's a normal price per gig, applicable up to a certain max size, what you have to look at then is if you need the continuous storage, or if you could split it for a cheaper price.
