I've got a Kingston DataTraveler II in 2GB, and haven't had any problems with it. It does use a crappy string to hook it to your keyring, but other than that I'm loving it; I've been through 4 drives in the past year, and none of them had speeds like this one, or lasted as long. I picked it up at a local store for $15, and haven't looked back

Where's the keyring on that one?

I have a kingston that was nice, but the keyring was just a piece of plastic for a lanyard, and it broke off...

I plan on using the swivel cap for that.
