I want to purchase a usb flash drive for using the readyboost functionality of windows vista. What drive do you think will give good performance.
Sandisk is releasing a new drive Cruzer® Contour that has been enhanced for ReadyBoost.
Also there is Apacer HT203. What drive are you using and what performance boost are you experiencing?

I am using a Sandisk Cruzer (2 GB) on my laptop and a Kingston on my desktop (1 GB). Both working well...

Thanks for the reply. How much space is being used on the device? Should I go for the 4GB drive or will 2GB be sufficient.

You shouldn't need more than your RAM available... I am using 2GB on my laptop but even 1GB helps.
