Top 5 USB flash drives from Corsair, Kingston and Imation

USB thumb drives are a handy way of storing your files while on the go. Unlike portable hard drives, they can be slotted inside your pocket or even attached to a keychain to ensure you always have your data at hand. Here are our top five picks for USB thumb drives from brands such as Corsair and Kingston. Some of these thumb drives are aimed at security conscious users, while others are designed for people who require lots of storage space.

The Kingston DataTraveller 5000 is an ultra-secure USB flash drive boasting government-approved encryption -- it's like carrying Fort Knox around in your pocket. On the downside, it's not the fastest thumb drive on the market and the 4GB capacity is bound to fill up fast.
