oh...ok

firstly...i don't know why you would want such a huge pen drive. It's going to be really slow transfering files. If you're going to use it as an external hd then maybe but otherwise, get a small one that has enough capacity to do what you want.

however, a 40gb 2.5" portable hdd for $50 is a steal... (but how much does shipping cost??)

It sounds unbelievable.

everything including shipping, cost me about 70 euro....
I only can get one 512 MB pendrive , or the most is 1 GB pen drive for 70 euro.

even if it is not a pendrive, 50 bucks for a 40GB portable space is worth the money. If it is real pen drive, that means the buyer is very lucky.

----------

The cheapest stuff I have ever bid is a Sarah Brightman CD
the price is 0.01 USD
including shipping cost, I paid 8 bucks.
The quality of the CD is not bad.
the seller is from HK,
