    Question Best small fast 32GB USB stick?

    Something that doesn't break the bank, offers decent USB 3 speed and lets me use the 2nd USB port on a MacBook at the same time :-p

    Tall order, I know


    I had this one and lost it:

    I'll buy it again but open to recommendations

    yeah appears they don't list it anymore. Sorry mate.

    I also use the corsair GT but the 128GB version is a lot quicker write (and more expensive) than the 32GB version so I can't comment on how well that size will perform.

    Re: Best small fast 32GB USB stick?

    Hi Hexus forums I figure now to be the right time for my first post.

    I bought a HP v210w 32Gb flash drive last year and I have been very happy with it.

    Very well put together and smaller than the one you have linked so it shouldn't obstruct your other USB ports. It is generally inexpensive and has fast-ish transfer rates.
    It's only USB 2.0 but it is honestly faster than most usb sticks I've owned.
    I have personally found USB sticks are only as fast as the overall quality of product allows it to be, not just the connector.

    Re: Best small fast 32GB USB stick?

    How about a microSD card plus a really small Kingston microSD card reader? Small, relatively fast and was cheap last time I ordered some.
