I m using micro cruzor from 2yrs
Of 8GB capacity I have used it in many harsh conditions, but it seems to me like a new one every time I see it and use it, I love SanDisk for its world best quality products.
This one is awesome. I have one and it is of 16GB and it is like 1.5 years old and it also got in some accidents like falling from a 5th floor, and mistakely got in the laundry with my jacket, but it still works more than like a new one.
[Newest]No comparison of sandisk products better than any other usb products

I have a Kingston Data Traveler 16gb. It's been with me for three years now. I need a big memory because I use it in a daily basis to access and save my school works like high resolution photos, digital arts, videos to edit and 3D stuff

Sony is known to it's durable innovations
[Newest]I have used the sony usb from 2year in all worst condition but they are still work properly.

The Voyager GT is incredibly fast compared to other USB 2.0 flash drives. In reality it can read up to 30MB/s and write at about 20MB/s. Never had such fast usb drive.
Reliable and fast, consistent high end performance. May cost a little more, but quality pays for itself.
Awesome very fast unit. Never let me down and fast enough to play be movies

It a very good pendrive. I have been using it for 4.5 years. It still like new
Nice attractive red colour look

New in the competition, will soon be at number 1 because of quality and innovation, just use them-you'll love it... Really.

Well, I love this brand of U.S.B.

It serves me a lot of benefits, just like protecting my files from being lost.

The Contenders

Its very nice to use.. And toshiba design is good...
I do not felt a single problem while using toshiba...
Great designs and waterproof!

12CD-R King
I'm proud to be Pinoy... Good quality products (CD-R King)
CD-R King all the way!
Basta! I love you CD-R King!


This is my reccomended brand because of its durability trust me I've tried them all and kingston has nothing on this :D
This is the best drive because of size (seriously the 64gb is smaller than the 8gb, which is below an inch), storage, durability, etc.
I think PNY is much faster than Kingston pendrive. Because the speed of data transfer of PNY pendrive 4mbps but Kingston 3mbps only. moreover PNY no need to press 'safely remove my hardware' just can remove from the PC.

Awesome brand! I own a Rugged Key that is water proof, 3.0 usb, 32 gb, resists 100 meters of fall and protects my data with a password. And I have a backup software that came with the product and copy all the files from my pen drive every time I connect at my Mac. It's great

Went through washer & dryer and is STILL working perfectly.
PQI drives are innovative, cool, fast, durable and life time warranty and too small
Never had any trouble with this USB

This is one of the best company getting unnoticed.. I used it for nearly 3 years and tortured it a lot.. But is is still working the same as it was when I bought it.
At least 4 years here on quite frequent usage (few times a week on average). Also like it speed - its faster than some newer ones.
I just purchased one and hope it would be a good product with small size.

18Silicon Power
Best pen drive.. Special feature-water proof
Its great and beautiful.
The best designs and excellent quality. Waterproof pendrives


I have it for 4 years! It's great

Strontium has the best quality above all!
Best quality and great design.
Best quality and fast

They are perfect for me, not for performance but not for 10k file! I'm using it for project, Work great, recommended!


Its lasted for 4 years and gone in with my clothes in the washing machine a couple times. Its so awesome
Great experience with all flash Maxell drives.
Never failed me, great performance and style.

Very faster, Nice & cheap...

Amazing Designs and Fantastic finishing! Using Same USB drive for around 5 years.




For about 3 years I am using Genx 8 gb pendrive. It is light small and nice. It have a average speed. Genx is not so expensive. For a average use I recommend to buy Genx usb flash drives.

These are hard to find but I feel they're the fastest drives available. If you want speed nothing can beet a patriot. Its data transfer rate is almost incredible and outmatches everyone
Fastest and reliable drives I ever used, this should be on the top of the list, the supersonic magnum series is the top of the class!
Best pen... I used in patriot mini pen drive and no issue came...
I will think this is the best pen drive... Almost


Is the best flash drive...

One of the Top 3 in Malaysia!

35USB Direct




39Western Digital


41KingCom Digital
I really love this because they have no virus can enter

The most secure and the most cool flash drive you can buy. You can have your contact details added so if you lose it, it can be found. Also I guess if your data is not important though just use a non-encrypted, non returnable flash drive!
I love these devices. It simply works out of the box, easy to setup and use and no software components to worry about. It is also cheap enough that if you do lose it, you will not break the bank, your data may be lost, but you can be assured it is safe.
Most secure flash drive that doesn't need software to decrypt!
[Newest]The most secure and reliable USB flash drive so far.
