    Well, most of them are built by Samsung and sold under 87 different brand names.
    We use a great number of USB flash drives in our repair business. We dislike San Disc
    and we like

    Corsair
    Kingston
    Memorex,
    Lexar
    LG
    Geil
    OCZ
    PNY (so far)
    Crucial

    We did not have good luck with
    Simpletech
    San Disc
    Ultra
    Transcend
    Patriot

    We find that spending the extra money for those that are protected against dropping and impact is worth it.

    We use only Corsair and Kingston for our high memory devices... 8 mb to 16 mb, and have had no failures.

    Kingston data traveler. Have owned it for 2 years and not had a single problem. It is quite remarkable..i hear all these stories about flash drives, but i have never had a bad experience.
