I have a 256MB one. You could possibly afford the 1GB pen drive.

If ive done it correctly the above link is to my question on 'tough' usb drives.
Also wanted a pendrive for school work, that did not have a weak plastic cover etc, hope the link is useful !

Bytestor is a bit flimsy

Disgo Ok

Integral better but is a bit small, lid is easy to lose and you'd need fine wire to go through the available hole.

I've use all these for sales promotions so know them well. Personally I use a 512Mb Integral which fits comfortably in the cash section of my palm wallet.

The Crucial looks like a nice product and they are an excellent supplier.
