Recommend a thumb..?

Question

Posted

Hi all,

 

In the market of looking for a thumb drive, I lost my 16GB thumb drive and im looking to upgrade now.  What im looking for is 32GB or higher (depends on price), USB3 compatiable and I guess a different look from typical thumb drives :).

 

TIA

 

Ive been looking and im so overwhelmed haha..

 Sandisk and PNY are very good. You can get thumbdrives for dirt cheap now (compared to 6 years ago).  You should check ebay for thumbdrives, because I got a brand new thumb drive for very cheap. I remember the ebay seller was newegg.

The ones posted by xendrome are some good drives.  I looking to buy a couple of 64's just waiting and hoping for USB 3.0's to come out (if they ever do).

My flash drive arrived quickly and came exactly as it was described. I have a PNY flash drive from 2007 and it has been through washing machine and dryer a couple of times and it still works.

I have owned 6 Patriot Xporter Boost XT flash drives of various sizes, and they have all been excellent. Not one has died on me or anyone I have given them to. I still own three of those drives, and they are still in great shape. It is the fastest USB 2.0 flash drive I have ever used. I also own one 16 GB Patriot Supersonic Boost XT, which is the USB 3.0 successor to the Patriot Xporter series. You can buy a 32 GB Patriot Supersonic Boost XT for $35. The 64 GB Patriot Supersonic Boost XT and 64 GB Patriot Supersonic Rage XT (which has a slightly higher read speed than the former) are each $55. I provided links to Newegg, but the prices are about the same on Amazon if you prefer.

haha ended up finding my thumb drive, but I want to still buy a new one with USB3 capability.

 

Either going to go with:

Or:

The ADATA has a lifetime warranty which no one else offers.
