I've been using a Wingate (I think that's the name) 512 for the last year or so. Tried to replace it with a 2 gig drive which was very slow with small files, so thus it couldn't run programs worth anything. I just got a pqi 1 gig drive that's really small. Everything works great on it, but sometimes, for some reason, possibly the drive is too slow, Firefox will freeze for 3 to 5 seconds about once a minute. More if there are more images to load. And I....oh, I think I have cache off.

Need to check that.

After Oct 18, I might be using a new iPod Classic. Woot. (birthday)

I have a Kingston 4gb thumb drive and a 2gb Memorex thumb drive. I also bought a Seagate 160gb FreeAgent Go portable hd. I really like the Seagate drive it came with a five year warranty. I think it only covers free replacement for 3 years though. I also got a Toshiba Satellite A205 laptop for Christmas.

I started with an unbranded 1 GB flash drive that had a surprisingly decent write speed but a mediocre read speed (go figure). I mainly use this one for portable games (CaveStory, Guxt, MiniShoterRS, Jedi Knight 1, Star Control: TimeWarp, MechWarrior 1).

I then got a PNY 1 GB flash drive with a read-only switch, which I keep set to read-only 99% of the time; I set up wrappers for most of my programs to deal with the issues some progams face when run read-only. I mainly use this for diagnostics and working on malware-infected computers.

I also have a tiny Lexar 1 GB flash drive that hasn't been given a purpose yet.

Usually use a Sandisc Cruzer 8GB titanium. I only went for that model because it's solid metal construction and capless. Got a few other USB pendrives laying around including a Cruzer 16GB Titanium, but it's not as fast as the 8GB.

Honestly, I use a fair few portable apps and I could fit them all on a 2GB drive if need be, so 8GB is ample for me.

I use the 640-gigabyte version of an external hard drive called Samsung S2 Portable. The partition I've reserved for portable applications is 16 gigabytes in size. (It is too big. Only about 3,4 gigabytes is in use, and seek times would be a bit lower if the partition was smaller. :roll: )

I have a GNU/Linux distribution installed on the drive as well, and running it causes a lot of writes. For me, it is very important that mechanical hard drives have relatively high write speeds and unlimited write cycles.

Everything is portable, what I like/need.
Booting any OS on any computer anywhere and using portable applications as much as possible.

I use a 1 TB WD 'My Passport SE' USB v3.0 external HDD. It's about the size as most smart phones and powered exclusively from the USB, and doesn't make any noise unlike the older 'My Book' models.

I also have a generic 8 GB USB stick that came with 8 GB free "cloud storage"... which I haven't considered using. :oops:
