8/1     I'm looking for a 1GB and a 2GB USB flash drive.
        All the reviews I've seen on amazon seem to be very mixed.
        I'd like something rugged, simple, fast, and reliable.
        Any suggestions? Thanks
        \_ I like the Kingston DataTraveler Elite 2GB.  I backup my pr0n to the
           the encrypted partition, it's fast, and it's reliable.  Other flash
           drives have the cool slideout (so you don't lose the cap), but it's
           hard to find one with real hardware-based encryption.  FYI, the
           "Privacy Edition" is the same thing except you don't have a public
           partition (basically so ppl don't have to think), and I don't care
           for the "Migo Edition" and similar solutions where you load your
           user prefs from your flash drive (too heavyweight IMO).

           If you don't want hw encryption, you can go much cheaper, just go
           to http://newegg.com, pick 1GB or 2GB, and sort by Rating.
        \_ Get a U3 Smart flash drive.  This week Office depot 1GB $25.

        \_ One of my recent new toys has been a Corsair FlashVoyager, which
           I've been very happy with. It supports partitioning and all that
           good stuff and is fairly snappy for a USB thumbdrive. Plus it's
           built like a brick and hard to lose (rubbery surface stays in my
           pocket much, much better). IMO, teeny-tiny ones (Cruzer Micro or
           smaller) are just too loseable

           I think it's also slightly cheaper than a few months ago.

           it.  I carry all kinds of porn wherever I go. -proud American

Good USB Drive Pros: I upgraded from the same model but the 1 GB version, this one performs the same way. Cons: Some times the rubber doesn't let the usb drive go all the way in, had problems using it with the old dells, good thing dell no longer use that set up that I hate it any way.... More >> Other Thoughts: Never had a single problem with the hardware, support on the forum is great.

More >> Other Thoughts: This is going to sound like a bad commercial: But it's true. The USB connector was slightly depressed, but I was able to fix it easily by just springing it back out with a screwdriver.

The space helps alot when trasferring files to adn from work. Cons: Not quite 2 Gigs, but alas, that is not a major problem. Rubber coating does collect lint from my pockets, but maybe that is the pocket's fault!...
