There are such alot of makes of these drives, its very hard to recommend one specific model.

I'm sure people will be able to give you makes of ones they've bought that they think are trustworthy, but I'm sure most are now, like floppy discs used to be like, with al being about the same.

I knew the new corsair voyager is great. It's even water-resistant! but yeah... it's read and write speed's are awesome... I totally recommend that storage device. Well, kage, there's always the read/write speed... some differ, to my knowledge, and it depends, also, on the durability of the device. SOme of the USB's are cheapily made, while other's are covered in durable rubber, or metal, etc. Floppies are just floppies... lol... out of date, indeed. But yeah, the Corsair voyager...

I know that you are looking for only 1GB drive, but this model is soooo cheap and it's a 2GB version. It has a rebate on it so please get this one:

CORSAIR 2GB Flash Drive (USB Portable) Model CMFUSB2.0-2GB
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820233009

2GB will go by so fast once you start storing music, software, video, etc. I wish I could've got that one. I already have a 1.5GB drive with my two thumb drives combined. My two drives are: one Lexar and one Imation. Both are incredibly fast and reliable.

It's a really good deal for the storage you're getting. I mean, 2GB of flash memory for around $100 some odd dollars. It's good for the money. I'm sure in the long run price will drop further but the question is how long are you willing to wait. It's great to have it now.

If you order it right now through Newegg, you'll probably end up getting it over the weekend or Monday at the latest. Does FedEx even deliver on the weekends? Forgot...

In the meantime, maybe burn your data on a CD or something.
