Default USB Drives

Sorry if this thread doesn't go here but I was wondering about removable flash drives. I would like to know what the best company is for a USB Flash Drive, which is less than $150, and good quality. For that price I expect 8GB, and I want to know which company is most reliable. I have heard that some of the best companies are Kingston, Sandisk, and Jupiter. If so, which one is the best?

i wounld go with scandisk or kingston, not jupiter. IF your going to me getting a 8gb flash drive why don't you get a small portable hard drive, they will be around the same price, and it will hold a lot more data

Buffalo makes good flash drives, Stear slear of the ocz 8 gig transfer times are SLOW. Other than the 8 gig ocz iz also a good way to go for a flash drive.
