I've never had a USB flash drive, but I've seen how useful they can be. I found a list of them on Newegg, and saw that the 8GB ones are actually reasonably cheap.

There's one that's on sale, and only costs $25 with shipping right now (the A-DATA one), but the reviews seem kinda iffy on it. Sounds like it's really slow compared to others. So, does anyone here have experience with any of these, or else just recommendations on which of these would be at least somewhat fast for a reasonable price?

What it really comes down to is: What are you going to be storing or carrying on your flash drive?

Is Security important to you?

Probably just school-work. Bringing things from a friend's laptop to my own when we're working on a group project, saving data from experiments on school computers to bring back and work on on my own later, etc. But I also want a good deal of space in case I feel like bringing anime or something to a friend's to watch, but don't want to haul my laptop along with me. What would be not-secure about different kinds of flash drives?

Some flash drives have no password protection or any security at all. Others, like IronKey, have the some high tech secuirity features.

If you really want a lot of storage space, you might consider an external portable usb hard drive. Like this, for example.

Already have one of those. Want something I can keep on a keychain, cause that's just easier.
