We really like this drive, it's one of our favourites. The JetFlash 780 has superb benchmark scores, at 170 MB/s this drive has the highest sequential read score we have ever seen on a consumer grade flash drive. Very interestingly the performance profile on our test unit exceeded even the manufacturers claimed speeds by over 30MB/s! The 4K write speed is less impressive, but passable at 0.3 MB/s. With reasonably solid all round performance and a reasonable price point of £23 this drive represents outstanding value for money. [Jun '12 USBFlashPro]

The 16GB SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 is a remarkable flash drive. As well as packing a tiny form factor, the Ultra fit also boasts an impressive peak performance profile with maximum sequential read/writes of 129/46 MBps and 4K read/writes of 6.08/1.51 MBps. The Ultra Fit is actually only bested by three other 16GB models (Sandisk Extreme, Lexar P10, Lexar Triton) all of which cost between from 60-230% more. In terms of outright performance there are better alternatives but in terms of value for money the Ultra Fit is hard to beat. The superbly low price coupled with an amazing form factor which is barely larger than a USB socket make it easy to recommend the 16GB Ultra fit as the best small form factor flash drive on the market. The only thing to watch with the Ultra Fit are its sustained speeds which are significantly lower than peak. [Oct '14 USBFlashPro]
