Thos bigger ones(1mb or better) I've come across haven't failed yet, but most are relativity new, so I can't yes/no on any certain brand. Lower capacity ones have done quite well and when they do fail, they just do, more than likely because of "static/ESD" damage. I do find the Kingston brand more to my liking as I've had a 32mb for years and still works, all others have failed, like Memorex and Secure jumpdrives. Some other "give-aways" when they were 128mb or less didn't make it and died too, but they certainly lasted at least 1-2 yrs. before biting the dust. Earlier Cruzer drives had some glitch and I stayed away from them, but it seems they've corrected that(not recongized) or resolved it. As for any flash drives, I like those that have an easily "recappable" cover for the business end.
I'm looking for a new flash drive and would like some suggestions. I currrently have a 512mb cruzer titanium which is now not big enough (i got it because of it's speed). i am looking for something that has a 1 or 2Gb storage capacity. i like the "new" cruzer titanium but don't know if it is any good.
