    The actual price of $12 for one of these LG units is good but shipped for $12 is very good. You can get cheaper 4gb drives from MSY ($9) but its probably going to cost you $3 in travel and time to get into one of their stores. Seems that they're applying the $4.95 shipping charge across the board - I checked NSW, WA, and QLD and it stays the same.

    and its branded too.. not that it matters.
    I thought the branded ones had faster transfer rates?

    nah, you can't tell the transfer speeds from the brands, although some manufacturers do have high performance models (the faster drives are generally significantly more expensive for the same capacity)... if you are looking for a high performance flash drive, OCZ specialise in fast ones, Corsair and Patriot have some high performance models, and Kingston and A-Data also have a couple of high performance ones in their ranges... the frustrating thing is that most manufacturers don't report performance figures (probably because most of them are pretty slow)... they always say "high speed USB 2.0 480Mbps" which is a meaningless load of codswallop!

What do you think?
