I like Sandisk. Not the best around, but they provide great products.

I just bought a 8GB Lexar for $19.99.

And I was a little leary about Lexar, but so far no problems, even after it went thru the washer

I really haven't had any probs with any of my flash drives. I've had Lexar, PNY, Sony, and a random no-brand 4GB one. I still have them all, none have died. I've had my Lexar for quite a few years now, it's a 256MB to show it's age. The PNY is 1GB I got for Christmas I think last year. And then 2 others I found at school within the time period of this past year.

I bought a Crucial flash drive for my brother this year. It was cheap. It probably won't matter if it lasts long or not, he loses his current one all the time...
