Click Drive Recommendation

I have had REALLY bad luck with these lately. I had an expensive Voyager 64 gig that broke after about 2 months. I had a 32 gig micro center drive that broke after about a month. Also it was deathly slow. I actually don't mind spending a few bucks but I want the thing to last!!! Recommendations for a 32 gig minimum drive that is fast and reliable... and cheap if possible (but not required).

Not enough information! What means "click drive?"

I use Seagate Barracudas for recording audio.

If it clicks it may be dying...

Okay. But nowhere in that article is the word click!

check this:
Iomega Pocket Zip drive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
so I don't think you want to use the name click - bad associations!

I'm not really trying to quibble, but where do you get the name "click drive" for them? Is it a local colloquialism? A manufacturer's cutesy name? Just curious...

But as for your original question, there is a common phrse that applies:
Fast, reliable, cheap - pick two!

And being USB it can't really be fast. How are you using it?

I have a couple of ADATA 32G flash drives, they are fine but slow and I haven't had them fail yet.
expect to pay over $60:

Here are a couple links using the term "click drive" in the way I'm using it. Satisfied?

Looks like the Sony is a product name. they call it a flash drive at the bottom.

Just never heard it before, and my satisfacion is irrelevant. Nothing about it "clicks" for me... but then many names in the computer world baffle me. My computer SITS on a desktop, and has a screen.There is no desktop on my computer!
heh heh.

Would it bug you if I call it a thumb drive? They may or may not be made from robot's thumbs.
