best USB 3.0 flash drive?

Not seeing too many on the market now, and I don't see any storage less than 16GB. I'm guessing because of the increased speed, why bother making a device that stores only 8GB? (Or 4,2 or 1 - how about a 3.0 device that only stores 256 MB, gee, that would be a hot one.)

Waiting for the prices to come down, just wondering if anyone is using them.

I've yet to use USB 3.0 yet. I'm using eSATA on my work laptops and home desktop as I have eSATA controllers on them. I use it with a Thermaltake BlacX external hard drive dock.

USB Flash Drive as Hard drive to install to.
Hi, I've got a Win RT 7 Install running and my only problem is that it doesn't see flash drives as drives to install the OS on to. I can see the USB drives for loading a driver so the installer already sees the USB drive but it won't list it for selecting a destination for the OS. So, I'm not...
