Questions regarding USB Drives

Some interesting questions we are looking for an answer to: Q: According to the discontinued list for 2014, several of the SKUs were discontinued, but then at the end of 2015, many of them were listed as being discontinued again. When were they really discontinued?

Questions with an answer: Q: Why do some of the drives have two SKUs listed? A: On their website and when ordering, Spyderco used a USB2Gxx SKU, but the packaging only lists it as USBxx, so we provided both SKUs for reference. The SKU used by dealers seems to vary between the two versions as well.
