Most Favorable Review

Good drive w/integrated cover

Kingston DataTraveler 101 G2 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Red) Model DT101G2/8GBZ
Kingston DataTraveler 101 G2 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Red) Model DT101G2/8GBZ

Pros: Integrated easy to open cover that you cannot lose. 10MB/sec write speed. Pretty Has ur program pre-installed if you want it.

Cons: Not as fast as some flash drives.

Overall Review: I purchased three different 8 GB flash drives and tested the write speeds. All three cost roughly the same. The three are: Muskin http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226078 Sandisk Cruzer http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820171467 Kingston DataTraveler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820139246 The Muskin and Kinston are the same size. Both will fit two in close spaced vertically stacked USB ports although it is a very tight fit. The Sandisk is almost half the thickness of the Muskin and Kingston. All 3 are basically the same width. The Kingston has the advantage of an integrated cover that you cannot lose. The Muskin has a clear plastic (easily lost) cap. The Sandisk has no cover. I timed the copying of a single 1GB mp4 file to the flash drive. Each flashdrive was virgin. 1GB file time to transfer in seconds: Muskin 14MB/sec 71 seconds SanDisk 5MB/sec 198 seconds Kingston 9.8/MB/sec 102 second

Pros: Very small in size. Perfect when you have to squeeze a flash drive in a crowded USB port.

Cons: Not the fastest drive

CENTON MediaPower 32GB SD/SDHC Flash Card Model 32GBSDHC10

Pros: Super high write speed! This card has a sustained write speed or over 14MB/s. Most HD video requires 6MB/s (Class 6) so this card more than doubles that requirement. Great card for the money.

Cons: none

Fast

Great Card!!!

Transcend 8GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TS8GSDHC
Transcend 8GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TS8GSDHC

Pros: This card is very fast and it works flawlessly. Others gave it a bad review because 99% of the current card readers will NOT read a SDHC spec card. I have five card readers either stand alone or in computers and NONE of them will read a SDHC card. My Treo 680 reads it perfectly and I had to use it as the card reader/writer. As soon as SDHC readers become widespread, this card will be hit. Current readers have a 4gb max and that's why most will not read a SDHC card beyond 4gb.

Cons: Only the shortage of SDHC readers but that's not a fault of the card. Sellers should make buyers aware that their current readers WON'T read this card.
