For the bargain shoppers...

At for $21 (after rebate, no shipping) you can get a brand-name:

        SanDisk 256MB Cruzer-Mini USB 2.0 Drive

For $40 (+$4? shipping) you can get the PQI ultra-small one that also doubles as flash media for other digital devices:

        PQI Intelligent Stick 256MB USB 2.0 Flash Drive

Have fun!
