  • USB Flash Drive Roundup – October 2006 | Hardware Secrets Recommended Book High Performance Memories: New Architecture DRAMs and SRAMs - Evolution and Function click to enlarge By Betty Prince Figure 6: ATP ToughDrive, Patriot Xporter XT and Geil David 100 were awarded John Wiley & Sons with our Golden Award. Price: $91.50 Also, in the past we recommended Corsair Flash Voyager. Forget about it, as both ATP ToughDrive and Patriot Xporter XT also have a rubber protection but providing a far better performance. Why bothering with performance? Think about this: on a 2 GB part you can store the equivalent of three CDs – a huge data capacity. What is the point of having this colossal storage capacity available if transferring data will take forever? Of course performance isn’t everything. Other companies are providing different features. If you are looking for something small, you could take a look on OCZ Roadster and ATP Petito (not included in our roundup) or even Kingmax Super Stick (which is very thin). And if you are looking for something innovative, Corsair Flash Readout is really great as you can see thru its LCD display how much storage space is still left inside the drive without needing to connect it to a PC. Kingston provides a built-in hardware-based encryption engine on DataTraveller Elite and U3 technology on DataTraveller U3 Smart. It is really a pity that these devices don’t have a great performance. If you aren’t a performance geek and are looking for specific features found on those other models, they can be a very good choice for you.
