I am currently using a Sandisk Cruzer Titanium 4GB as my USB drive, and while it sure is neat to have all one's applications and documents at hand, it is rather slow to use.
For example, when opening Firefox from the USB drive, it takes at least one minute to open and it extremely sluggish when using it.
The Cruzer is admittedly not one of the fastest drives out there but als not on the lower end, plus I really liked its form factor and rugged looks.
But to be useful, I need a faster drive, preferrably one that is also not too big as I use it on my keychain.
I have found several so far:
- Corsair Voyager GT, which performed rather well according to this review but is quite big and thus not very practical to carry on a keychain.
- AVB USB 2.0 Mobile Drive. Again, according to a review on Bjorn3d.com it ranks among the fastest USB drives available, but unfortunately it is not as available as I would like, as it is nowhere to be had in Europe.
Looking forward to comments!
