It doesn't quite make sense to me. You can get a 500gb portable HDD for like $50 or less yet a 64gb flash drive costs upwards of $35 on Amazon. Is the technology behind flash drives more expensive or are they more durable? Or is the demand for flash drives just that much more than portable HDDs?

completely different technology, flash drives are still quite a lot smaller and no movable parts is kind of important when you carry it around a lot.
