SanDisk 16GB Ultra USB Flash Drive
Pros: Awesome price
Cons: Have to hold the sides to insert
I have faster drives, like the OCZ Rally2, but for the price it is hard to beat. I use USB drives to move large video files around or to watch videos on my Samsung TV. This easily handles HD movies that fill the whole drive. That means that it will not stutter even with a 2 hour movie that is close to 16 gigs. I try to use my OCZ drives if I need to move a 12 gig video for editing though, as time is ticking in that situation. It is way faster than other value drives, is robust, looks nice, and is very compact (but not so small that losing it becomes a real possibility). The only slight issue is that you have to hold it by the sides to insert, otherwise it may slide back into it's shell. Also, no cord to keep it around your neck. Still, it is well worth the money. I definitely recommend.
Pros: 18 Gb Lot of storage
Cons: Had to reformat exfat or ntfs to store iso files
Good size for the money. Had to reformat to exfat or ntfs to store movies. Vault is ok if you need protection. This drive like most pen drives is format fat. I do not know why. But just reformat and you can store anything. Drive is slow on copy but look at the size.
Pros: Cheap and .... A Cool Red Glow
Cons: "Switch Blade" Design
It's just a memory stick, not like it's sexy or anything.<br />It has a "switch blade" design which can stink if the USB port is in a tricky location.<br />I don't really need an encryption function and password on a flash drive. But now the software is installed and sets in the system tray (makes me wonder what resources it uses).
Pros: Nice, small design... easy to place in your pocket.
Cons: Doesn't work as advertise... at least not for the extra money. Causes your computer to shut down after disconnect.
First off it states on the package that it will Read faster because it is labeled as an ultra. You don't notice any jump in speed over any other SanDisk flash drive.
Pros: Great capacity and fast speeds
Get this flash drive! It is the fastest flash drive I have ever had. Best Buy also has the lowest price. Another competitor wanted twice as much. This drive is very easy to use, simply pop it in and it works quickly. I have other 16 GB drives and none can compete in terms of transfer times for large files.
