    Is there any specific USB drive that you rely on more than others?

    Kingston Data Traveler Micro - it's both the smallest and fastest USB drive I have ever used.

    The Sony Micro Vaults (USM-Q/U/P) are my favorites, mainly because of their design.

    looks nice! :thumb:

    my main criteria for a USB key is that it has to be carried easily on a key chain.
    and it must be cap-less.

    I don't have one, really. Actually I always buy drives that look different (which often means different brands) so I can tell them apart.

    All I want is 64GB at lowest price.


    When will 128 GB come on market? or are they already here?

    Corsair Flash Voyager. Why? Because I decided to collect them years ago.

    I have every USB 2.0 one from 128Mb to 32Gb and some of the older ones cost me a fortune to acquire.

    I'm crazy? YEP :oops:

    Pretec i-Disk Bulletproof - Resistant to water, fire, and any heavy impact. The only problem is, that you have to glue the inside once you buy it or you might loose it. o_O

    Kingston DataTraveler Locker+. AES256 encryption, formats itself after ten incorrect log-in attempts. If it gets lost, I don't have to worry about being compromised.

    I care most about whether or not the usb-stick has a physical write-lock button/slider.

    anything except corsair ones. they are horrible we have SO many come back and also see the reviews on newegg to see the same situation. my faves are the mushkin ones, adata, and patriot follow then a mix of the rest. i only buy usb 3.0 now and stay away from the "store" brands since they are usually dirt slow compared to the above mentioned.

    Kingston and Corsair. The only two flash drives that didn't break after 3-4 uses. :)

    Kingston all the way

    Very reliable :thumb:

    I've been using a Kingston DataTraveler DT150 32GB since January of 2009, it's still alive and kicking to this day.

    I've had good luck with PNY but also own a few SanDisk.

    As of now, all of my USB's have been working flawlessly, even my old Sony 32MB USB which i use for college. I hope it stays that way, i use two of them as backup devices of some important files. :D
