The largest capacity flash drive that I currently own is Integral's 32GB Courier - I wanted something that could take the place of an external hard drive when transferring files between my two Macs, and the Integral fitted the bill perfectly. Having used Integral products in the past I have always found the brand to be trustworthy and I feel confident that my data will be stored securely.
Design & Appearance

With a transparent blue plastic shell, the Courier is fairly nice looking albeit in a cheap and cheerful way. The design is very recognisable as other companies have used the same outer casing in their own flash drives (the play.com variety comes to mind). From the perspective of scale, the Courier is fairly slim, and has a length and width of 24 x 7 mm respectively. In the hand the device feels comfortable, and the USB end of the drive is covered by an easy to remove cap which also features a loop which you could potentially add a lanyard to.
Price, Availability, & Performance

In terms of the Integral Courier's current cost, you can pick one up for only £18.99 from Amazon - I feel that this price is very good value for money considering the amount of storage space provided. Using the device is very simple - it will work with both Mac and PC, and it's very much 'Plug and Play'. With a three megabyte per second write speed, the device is a little slow, but i'm able to forgive it due to the large amount of data it can hold. I've had no issues regarding the product's performance, and to date it has been reliable.

For anyone who is looking to transfer a number of files without any fuss, the 32GB Integral Courier is a reliable product which performs well and is available for a reasonable price. The only complaint from me would be the fact that it isn't lightening quick - but personally i'm not too concerned.
