This thread is from 2013 So its quite possible much of this info is no longer valid for best or anything to really..
I have been happy with
Silicon Power 16GB Blaze B30 USB 3.0 Swivel Flash Drive R/W up to 40/20 MB/s, Black (SP016GBUF3B30V1K)
Picked up a few of these to have in the desk, seemed like whenever someone needed something the 4 or 8 gigs I had were just a hair too small. And they were slow at 2, so picked these up and also have couple of the 32gig and couple of the 8s that were on sale for like 5 bucks or something..
Price is good and like the design
