USB 3.0 key choice.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm currently looking for a USB 3.0 key, the main use will be to install OS's on different computers around the house and formatting/copying files around is always a huge pain, it'd be nice to have a boost in speed.

I'm looking at something under 50$ and with 8GB or more.
Up until now, I've only found a PQI key:

But never heard of them

I'm just unsure what else I have as choices... All the rest is >100$.

Alternatively, I could buy with a USB 2.0 key (I'm currently using my girlfriend's and it's a bit annoying to her) but then again, I'd have no idea which one to take.

PQI make a lot of flash memory, and are a decent enough brand.

But TBH there is little difference in speed between current USB2 and USB3 drives - so I wouldn't bother paying the price premium.
