    Question Best USB Flash Drive/Pen?

    Looking for a fast transfer but extremely small USB flash drive (place with your keys type) and about 8gb or more. Need this for transferring files to and from work to home and back again.

    Been looking around and looks like you can get 8gb ones for about £10 but they look abit flimsy.

    Best I've found so far (but abit expensive) is the Super Talent Pico C 8GB USB Pen Drive, which is about £20 delivered but is the smallest in the world and is waterproof, if you ever fancy chucking it into your drink .

    Can anybody else through some other options in the hat?

    The corsairs are awesome, the only negative is the cap can go missing, but then Corsair will send you two in the post of you ask for it.

    I registered for a couple as I thought I lost mine and they turned up withint a week direct from California.

    "Best" is rather open-ended. Best priced? Best in terms of features? Best in terms of speed?

    I personally prefer to go for speed, and... although I haven't tested them... the fastest pendrive I've owned so far, is my (16GB) Patriot Xporter XT Boost.
    The next fastest I own is a (4GB) Lexar Jumpdrive Lightning.

    Thanks guys for the responses so far.

    However the recommendations from the above post - whoa!

    "8GB JumpDrive Lightning
    Part Number: JDP8GB-431
    Price: $179.99
    Add to Cart"

    And I thought £20 quid was a lot! considering you can get the sandisk cruzers for a tenner - I have no doubt it runs like the wind though!

    Exclamation Re: Best USB Flash Drive/Pen?

    $180 is £120 at current exchange rates

    I can assure you... I never paid anything like that kinda silly money for my 4GB version
