"Why is the branded USB drive any different ?"

Because you don't really know who made it and how? You may trust your contacts, but do you know how many layers of procurement and supply they went through to source these cheap 'gifts'?

Risk vs benefit - no real benefit vs a tiny (but > 0) risk of possibly severe consequences.
