USB 2.0 Intelligent Stick (512 MB)
$17.99 at buy.com (+$5.56 shipping = $23.55)
A couple years ago, I bought the 128 MB stick it at Home Depot ,of all places, for about $12. It’s in the photo above. It’s super small. 1 11/16″ x 11/16″ x 3/32″. That’s less than 1/8″ thick!
The plastic case (shown on top of my wallet) is slightly thicker than a credit card, though it could be alot thinner given the super-slim nature of the usb stick. The carrier should have three slots instead of two. There’s plenty of wasted space on the carrier. Nonetheless, it’s still a great tool.
I keep it in my wallet all the time. It makes transferring files between work and home very easy. Plus I keep a few files on the usb stick that I like to reference here and there. It’s also cool because I feel like a spy every time I use it. However, I have often been frustrated by the 128MB capacity. I’ve been looking for larger usb sticks.
Buy.com has the 512MB for $18 ($23.55 including shipping). Meritline.com has the 1GB stick for $28.50 with free shipping. I’ve never heard of Meritline.com before, but 30 bucks for a gigger hidden away in my wallet is a great deal.
I can’t decide if i want the 512 from buy.com (which i’ve bought from before) or take a leap and go with meritline and their 1 gigger.
