Hey guys I am looking at getting these two Lexar USB Drives to back up a few laptops.  I  don't really want or need an full external backup drive for these two small hard-drives on these laptops but suggestions are welcome.  Also like the idea of having them with me in case I need to Restore my pc on site.  This is what I am looking at because of the value.  I know there are better USB Drives out there but these are a good value and should be good enough for now.  Any input is very welcome.

 

Wanted to also mention, that I looked at newegg and there were no comments on this USB, I hope that is not a bad sign LOL.

Thanks pcpunk

I have not had good experiences with Lexar. Get a Kingston or SanDisk instead. :)

Thanks gig, I since found more info. at amazon on those in the single purchase here:

I've had good luck with their smaller Drives, but have also been reading up - and understand that there are better out there, but what a price for those if I get lucky a get a good set!  I really like their Twist Models,16-32gb have been good to me so far.  And, the important bits don't get dirty, with no caps to loose.

 

I will take your advise and look into the Kingston or SanDisk  thanks.  Maybe I will just get one for now.

My dad has a 8 gig Kingston drive that he's had for 7 years it seems like.
