The Top Ten

1 SanDisk

I has gone through my washing machine more than five times and it still works perfectly! Using the same pen drive for the last 2 years.

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.

Its really good I have 2 sandisks and 2 other brands. Sandisk seems to be on top. It has traveled with me for a very long time and I really like it. I recommend it to all you folks out their who really like such products that are on top and show such a eat performance and build.

Transcend is better than Kingston in Sri Lanka.

Transcend pen drive is the best quality to compare than other pen drive

4 HP HP The Hewlett-Packard Company was an American multinational information technology company headquartered in Palo Alto, California.

Among one of the best brands personally. USB products by HP work at a very efficient pace. One downside was one of the flash drives quickly became destroyed; otherwise, it's a very good brand I recommend. - illusion

It looks great but I have worse experience. With in 5 month my 16 GB pen Drive stop working..

Yes, it is one of the best storage devices in the world!

HP is one of the number 1 pen drive
BEST ONE, AWESOME aand I love this brand very much
Use it and enjoy

6 Corsair

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

Really the fast one to read and write data with in seconds. The one to whom who hate to wait. It may be little expensive but the search for the fast one now.

Adata 16 GB... usb - 3.1 is the best USB Flash drives.

12 PNY

PNY Pan Drive quality is so good.

This is my reccomended brand because of its durability trust me I've tried them all and kingston has nothing on this :D

It's data transfer rate is faster than both Kingston and SanDisk. It's data transfer rate remains the same even after years of use.

I've been using 32gb of its for last one year, incredible reed and write speed and after a year of uses, it's transfer rate has been still the same.

13 Apacer

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.

I'm using apacer super mini usb 16gb. Working smoothly and compact design

15 LaCie

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

16 CD-R King

I'm proud to be Pinoy... Good quality products (CD-R King)

I've had two(2) 8GB cd-r king usb's that just stopped working after a few months. It's hardware is totally not durable and the files get easily corrupted and in worse cases, like what happened to mine, it just down plain won't be read in any computer device at all. Don't recommend this brand for people who are concerned about storing important files in their flashdrive.

I'm using my CD-R king USB for almost 3 years. Love it.

CD-R King all the way!

My first ever usb over 12 yrs old already! And also unlike other brands when accidentally drops, it won’t work anymore, PQI still works fine!

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

40 Verico
41 Olkya
42 Frohne
43 datAshur

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!

Is the most secure USB flash drive, easy to use.
