Posted on April 24, 2010 by


Are you trying to find out the current prices for flash memory chips? Are you using a search engine and perhaps typing in: “current flash memory prices” ?

Be careful. Search engines present internet pages by popularity. This is not always good when trying to research the current prices for flash memory. It can even be misleading.

Google Flash Memory Prices

So how do you search? If you are looking for current prices, you should use an advanced search limiting the results to the last year, month or week depending on what your search engine offers. Always use a date scoping, start by limiting to only the last month.

Currently prices are not going down, there is still a shortage and in many cases the prices are going up. You don’t see that from the search presented above. In fact you get the mistaken impression memory prices are dropping. This impression can be a big mistake. It may even lead you to buy from a wholesale site in China. They count on the impression a simple search for prices gives. To give an example, according to SOSFakeFlash one very deadly site is DHGate, just look to see what the prices are for 128GB usb flash drives. Under $16 US a unit?
