8 GB that small for $35?  Oh hell yeah.  Thanks HH news, I just might end up buying this.  I'll just do some reading of impressions first.  My brother has a 4Gb which looks almost exactly the same, but it cost around $50 when he got it last year.  Right now I can't find the small model for sale anywhere, including the site mentioned, but I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled.

Hopefully they're fast enough for ReadyBoost.  Would make a great accessory to any laptop running Vista.

and to think I just spent 25 bucks on my 4gb patriot xt (prices went down 5 bucks 2 days after i bought it)... dam... well, $35 for a USB drive that has those kinda speeds is ridiculous assuming it works correctly.. someone buy it and let us know!

Devices like this make you think of just how absurd floppy discs are. I remember playing various games on old Apple IIe computers in my elementary school library that we checked out on 5.25" floppy discs. Todays flash storage devices are really quite amazing when you consider 5.25" and 3.5" floppy discs only hold 1.2MB and 1.47MB respectively.

 If someone gets one, they will have to let us know what the actual read/write speeds are. It says up to 30MB/s transfer, which would have to be read speed, but even if the write speed is only half that it should still be perfect for ReadyBoost. At $30 these things are a steal.

Thanks for the links, CC. My Son just lost his flash-drive at school, and since his grades are so good I think I will just have to spring for one of these!
