Looking for USB Flash Drive

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm looking to buy a USB Flash drive and I'm having some trouble finding one with my requirements. I was wondering if anyone know a good one that fits what I need.
Requirements:
- USB 3.0
- Metallic casing
- sleek and small/compact
- Decent speeds
- Key hole/clip on (planning on putting it with my keys)
- 32/64 GB (may go for 16Gb)
- Budget - $35 MAX (hoping for $20-30)
- No Cap (i always end up losing it)

heres one by this brand I'm looking at by SSK but the speeds don't seem to be very good. The model is called "SSK SFD195 ".

Theres also one called PNY Lightning Attache that i found on ebay but im not sure if its legit. I cant seem to find any other retailer that sells that model.

i also prefer the flash drives like the SSK SFD195 or super talent pico where theres no cap and just made flush but thats not a requirement

I know its alot but I'm open to suggestions thx.

I know what you are looking for but there is nothing like that yet for usb 3.0. You want real small then go with 2.0.

Bump
So I confirmed that the aliexpress SSK listings is the actual company but those speeds for a 3.0 USB are pretty slow correct?
Anyone help?

Yep, those are slow for USB 3.0. 28MB/s write is just barely hitting the limits of USB 2.0. That said, if it can sustain that speed, it's still better than most USB 2.0 flash drives you'll find. I've got a bunch of flash drives from Kingston, SanDisk, etc and they only do around 5-10MB/s. Unfortunately, I doubt you'll see any fast drives with your form factor and budget requirements.

Personally, I've got a SanDisk Extreme 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive which works pretty darn well. Alas, it's not exactly sleek and it's got a plastic chassis (wouldn't trust it with my keys). However, it does have a clip hole. I have mine hanging off an ID lanyard.

I have been using 4 Muskin Ventura Pro 64GB flash drives for about a year now (these things are ABUSED) and have not had a problem.

They are a tad expensive, but work great
