what is the best 16GB flash drive on the market right now, and which one is the best deal considering price, speed, reliability, and any features of any kind (i.e. water resistant).

i am looking to back up all my personal documents on here as well as movies. also, i plan to boot from it.

I'm also looking at a good 16GB flash drive. I'm hearing the Patriot Xporter GT Boost is not bad, so is the Corsair Flash Voyager.

The OCZ rally2 and ATV turbo are not bad either.

That's the problem. I don't know which to choose now. There should be a review and benchies of these flash drives! :whistle:

You should only consider USB 3.0 drives. As a boot drive you need decent small file read/write performance.

There is a current group test here: http://www.whoratesit.com/Best-16GB-Flash-Drive/Compari...

The 16GB JetFlash 780 $35/£23 is currently at the top of the value chart.

I tested several and finally went with the Patriot Rage XT 16gb. Runs fast. Dont go with the drives that are on sale because you may get a good deal but will grow old waiting for them to work speed wise.
