I am looking fior the Best 256-512mb USB Thumb Drive. Like what brands are good with better features. I would like one that has a password on it. I wnt USB 2.0 and it should be small
I prefer the M-Systems DiskonKey. They are durable, exceptionally fast(many 2.0 keys are compatible, not certified) and have a very good software suite. The password is secure, using a almost impossible to crack encryption method. Some other manufacturers have had issues with this lately. Lexar's passwords were stored using XOR based encryption and could be easily cracked. M-Systems' current generation of keys is solid and has an unusual feature. The data going into the secured partition will be read and written at the same speed as to a non encrypted partition.

I use a Kingston DataTraveler. Its no-frills, but works great and works fast. It doesn't have any password protection, though. So if you need security, look elsewhere like DiskonKey as Xaoctic recommended.
Actually, I've heard rumors that Kingston's disks are actually made by M-Systems. You may want to give their SW a shot. The download site is here:
