Any fast and affordable USB flash drive?

Recommended Posts

I need to get a USB flash drive (pref 2GB, but 1GB will be fine too) to boot linux from. But most USB flash drives I see on sale are slow as heck, like read/write speeds of 7MB/s or so. I know that the PQI U339 Pro drives are fast, with read speed somewhere near 25MB/s, but they are pretty expensive. Buffalo drives are also fast, but I don't see them sold anywhere in USA.

Anyone has a good recommendation?

I have the 4GB Corsair flash drive and its awsome. It reads at 33MB/sec and writes at 22MB/sec.

I have their older 1GB drive, it was the fastest on the market at the time. I'll probably get one of these new ones as well, their I/O rates are terrific.
