    How many of you use pendrives? (USB flash memories?)
    I'm looking forward to buy one cause I really need it due to my work, I've been using an SD card with a pocket SD card reader but it doens't work anymore.

    So, any suggestions regarding brands?
    I hear kingston and sandisk are good ones, I don;'t want to buy a ****** pendriver cause they say they go blank if it;s too hot or go erase all your data after a while.

    Ok, your turn now! thanks people!

    I used to use them, but the capacity of them is so limited I had to trade up to external drive enclosures. You might think about doing the same. The notebook drive external cases are pretty small and easy to carry.

    no, I don't need that much capacity, I'm gonna buy a 512 mb pendrive cause the data i have to move here and there goes from 10 megs to 300 mb, when I have gigs of data i just use a regular hard disk, dont need a portable HD, plus im not looking forward to spend that much money, i can buy a 512 for 50 - 80 bucks

    I have several of the Lexar ones, 256mb and 1gig. They're great, and the only recommendation I have is to make sure you get the USB 2.0 high speed model.

    Ok thanks, I'm gonna go with the 512 Mb Kingston, I saw a 'Mini-Merlin', they were pretty cool, reeeealy small, the smallest ones actually, but I don't know that brand nor anyone using that brand, so Kingston it is, it's $51, plus I'm gonna get a USB extensor with 4 ports on one side for $7 so I can plug it to the extensor on the computer at work because it doesn't have a front USB port and it's always a pain in the *** to plug things in.
