Need help buying a new USB

I need a new USB because my old one was too slow and was only 2GB.

I'm looking for a bigger USB (at least 4GB) that must be extremely quick in writing and reading files.
I don't really care about security because it isn't such a big deal if I lose my USB because I won't be storing anything private or super important on it.
The USB also needs to have a good-looking design because I want to show my friends.

On my USB, I will be storing:
>Portable Apps such as Photoshop
>Documents and Project Files
>Pictures
>Portable Games (Plants Vs. Zombies!)
>Software and Driver setup files (to be used when I reinstall Windows)

What is a well-designed USB that can help me fulfill these tasks at the best speed possible for the best price on the market currently?

btw on APC mag (yeh unreliable but still) they gave the Apacer Handy Steno AH421 USB a really high rating (i think 95%).

Is that a good choice?

Sigh. If appearance is that important, base your purchasing decision on it. For the rest of us, a USB flash drive is a tool. As far as speed is concerned, you will not notice any speed difference in any of the modern USB 2.0 flash drives.
