So I bought an 8GB SanDisk Cruzer Micro on black friday and the thing got completely wrecked in my pocket for one day.
I have like 17GB worth of flash drives, but none that I can carry on my key chain.
I'm gonna try to sell my 8GB sandisk for at least $15 hopefully so I can use that money towards a new one.
8 or 16GB (8 is fine unless there's a really good deal on a 16)
It needs to be able to take a beating, and the keychain loop needs to be strong.
I looked at this one, which seems good other than a bad keychain loop:
Newegg.com - Patriot Xporter XT 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PEF8GUSB - USB Flash Drives
This one seems meh:
Newegg.com - Patriot Razzo 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF8GRUSB - USB Flash Drives
Two guys at work have this one, which seems great except the orange cover is not attached well to the flash drive, so it comes out if you pull it out of the usb port incorrectly:
Newegg.com - Patriot Xporter Mini 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF8GMUSB - USB Flash Drives
My boss has this one, which seems to be pretty hard. Also the keyring is on the cap, so you don't lose the cap and your keys don't dangle from the computer when you use it... it's more expensive, but I'm probably leaning towards this one right now:
Newegg.com - SanDisk Cruzer Crossfire 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model SDCZG8192A11 - USB Flash Drives
Any other suggestions? <$25 after shipping (area code 53711) would be excellent.
