    Transcend is the best! I recently took 2 Transcend 1GB JF 168 for Rs. 1250. Its a high speed one.

    Transcend T30 will be available for cheap but its a low speed one.

    Check out www.transcendusa.com for more details on available models. :)

    Lifetime means till the serial number written on the body of the pen-drive is not erased :( So be careful about it.

    ya its true... transend is awasom atleast at that price.. i too use one of 512mb.. but what if it gets damage or some problem.. shop keeper says they will change.. but still now has anybody changed.. they are not having any store or office in india(my dealer said).. so what next..

    I opt for iball. Took a 1 gb 6 months ago. The product is the smallest pendrive i ever seen but not so hardy and strong.. but u know, if u have any problem in there product take it to any of there office and they give a new one back in 5 min. I like the way they do that without asking any question..

    link to the pic of the pendrive.. http://www.cyberindian.net/wp-content/uploads/iball-usb-pen-drive.gif
    and u want to know the price.. 1GB in bangalore SP road at Primer Shop i asked today and the said 900 for 1gb with 2 yrs warrenty

    Wow, i bought a jetflash 1 gb yesterday. Was worried whether it will work ok and if it would be reliable. This thread put my fears to rest. but @the.kaushik, could you find out about any dealer in india in case my drive goes kaput?

    At least here in Mumbai, the dealer provides a warranty max for 2 years. After that, we have to go directly to manufacturer. Now I really don't know where the manufacturer is. Indian address is not mentioned anywhere :(

    But I will worry about it after 1 year and 10 months ;)

    Here in Mumbai, V30 is available for 1050 with 2 yrs warranty from the dealer and the rest from manufacturer.

    For 1250, we can get JF 168 1GB which is high speed ;)

    I think the prices in chennai are still lower and Qwerty will gladly point out :))
