Super drive

CORSAIR Flash Voyager 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model CMFUSB2.0-2GB
CORSAIR Flash Voyager 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model CMFUSB2.0-2GB

Pros: Very fast and durable. The light is helpful. No trouble using it between PCs and Macs. Used it five days a week for over a year without any problems - then I lost it. Wahhhh!

Cons: It does collect a lot of lint if you carry it in your pocket - but it's easy to clean (or you can use the lanyard).

Overall Review: The rubber housing sticks to keys in hot weather, so one day when I pulled my keys out of my pocket it fell on the ground and I didn't notice (rubber bounces quietly). I'm going to order two now to replace the one I lost. I'll be using the lanyard from now on. Oh yeah - I never had any problems with the cap falling off.

Decent

Kingston DataTraveler 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Purple) Model DTI/4GB
Kingston DataTraveler 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Purple) Model DTI/4GB

Pros: Recognized well on both Macs and PCs. Solid construction, good price.

Cons: Slooooow compared to my 2GB Corsair flash drive - copying 1 GB of files took the Corsair less than 1 minute, this drive takes over two.

Overall Review: I lost my Corsair and bought this as its replacement. I'll be buying another Corsair and giving this to my wife to use as her system backup. It's a good choice if you're not looking for top speed and are on a tight budget, but I'm too used to having a faster drive - for me this is like going back to dial-up after having a cable modem.
