After all is said and done, the best pen drive in this roundup is the Crucial Gizmo! Overdrive, by far. It not only offers one of the best visual appearances along with its included security software and included goodies but also manages to consistently offer the best performance out of the pack.
ADATA has a nice feature in their "Show Me Disk" pen drive which shows information about available storage space and even allows you to put your name on the drive but unfortunately, performance is not good. Corsair has a good product in that it is water-proof, comes with great warranty and some goodies but performance is in the middle of the pack most of the time, neither great nor horrible.
OCZ has a fast pen drive which is really only just a little bit slower than the Crucial pen drive and the Rally2 also looks great and is one of the smallest in the roundup. Silicon Power were a bit of a surprise - their pen drive was second to Crucial in most of our tests but just be careful of that spring-loaded cap free USB plug.
ADATA's PDO is easily the smallest storage device we've ever seen and will make a great addition to your key ring but unfortunately, it is let down by poor performance - that seems like the tradeoff for having such a small storage device. Transcend's JetFlash 120 keeps a low profile throughout the roundup although manages to quietly impressive with solid performance in our testing. While Kingston have a drive which performs fairly well, it just doesn't seem to have all that much going for it - especially considering the "boot time" for the drive, it takes several seconds to prepare itself before you can access it in Windows, whereas all the other pen drives were up and running almost instantly.
We hope this pen drive roundup proved useful and if you're on the market for a new pen drive or looking for a reliable Christmas present gift, you should find a pen drive here which will please your recipient. Price is not going to kill you either - for instance, the Corsair Flash Voyager 4GB can be found as low as $83 USD on our shopping comparison website.
