I've had my ups and downs with these things, culminating in a PNY 16G drive that loaded so slowly I thought my computer had frozen up or something. Obviously you get what you pay for... or do you? Reliability and speed reports on various USB drives seem to be all over the map. What makes/models of (thumb) flash drive have you gotten good results from, and which ones would you recommend I avoid? I'm interested in both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 models in the 8G to 64G size range.
