Mushkin Enhanced Mulholland 32 GB – Muskin Mulholland makes professional USB flash drives. They don’t provide the most sleek looking drives but it’s easy to say they provide the best internal quality. The speed is great, it’s reliable and it’s pretty sturdy.

This makes a perfect USB flash drive for someone who needs a reliable/fast USB flash drive, but will store it in a safe place (ie bookbag/laptop bag). Read More/Buy ( 32GB / 16GB / 8GB )

The speed is average for a 2.0 flashdrive, but when considering the price it’s amazing. Read More/Buy ( 16GB )
