    You mean USB flash drives? They're all pretty good. If you are looking for small and sleek I might suggest a Sony unit. And then there's the always popular Lexar sticks.

    I am using Sandisk and Kingston. Both are ok. There are different speeds in all the types so it comes down to the transfer speed you want. For normal data transfer the cheapest base model should be sufficient. It is really only when you start using them with large image files that the faster and more expensive cards come into their own.

    If you are thinking of getting a digital camera in the near future, I would suggest that you go for the card that would suit the camera you are thinking of getting. That way you can use the card for multiple tasks.

    I would suggest either compact flash or SD as they are the most commonly used. Try to avoid xD cards as there are not many card readers out there that can read them, and the ones that do are as dear as poison ($90 compared to the usual $15).

    Hope this helps.

    dd01,

    Well, they take all their measurements with digital readout micrometers......

    Then they do their calculations with HP Scientific Programable Calculators...

    Mark the appropriate areas with a sharp mechanical pencil...
