Depends how much you want to spend.

Cheapest is most likely not the best. I've found that these devices aren't very reliable so a cheap one would definitely be at the bottom of my list.

Same as €dstowe. Buy from someone like Amazon and make sure Amazon supplies and delivers. Amazon's 'market place' is ok but you may get problems if thing go awry.

Play.com
Ebuyer
Another two to look in to.
Maplins, though not the cheapest, but give quality and no hassle refunds if product duff.

PC World, again not the cheapest but will refund if flash drive damaged or not usable.

Seriously would you buy that and think it would be a good buy to save your precious data for years to come?
Could you recommend that?

Hummmm, so cheapest is not the best, OK you got me thinking, thanks for pointing out the obivious which I never thought about.

Should point out I'm using a couple of Dane Elec USB sticks and the oldest is now three plus years old and still being worked hard with no issues.

Seriously I did buy that, along with a 4Gb and a 2Gb from the same supplier. Over a year since I bought the first and no complaints but they get light use.
