    Hello,

    I have a Sandisk Cruzer and is ultra slow for upload... I'm looking for something faster. What would be a good flash drive?.. fast upload and download... 8 or 16gb

    Thanks!!!

    It might be USB 1.1. I've noticed very slow transfer times from those.

    (Note that even a USB 1.1 drive is compatible with USB 2.0, so even if the drive has "USB 2.0" printed on it, it might not be a fast drive.)

    What about the Flash Voyager® GT 16GB USB Flash Drive?

    There's a reason why SSD cost hundreds of dollars. Speed.

    I think there are some pricy thumbdrives that has 20 to 30 MB/s write.
