A change of jobs and an apparent fall in prices[1] makes me want a USB
key now.

Has anyone got any horror stories of buying cheap ones?  I guess I want
fairly rugged build, plus decent read/write speeds, plus write
protection, plus low enough power to run through an unpowered hub (nice
to have).

If I buy one of these no-namers with no specs and no google-found
reviews, what are my chances of getting something that meets my needs?

Is anyone of the opinion that prices will fall further in the near
future?  It seems like a big drop from what they were a few months ago.

Lastly, if anyone's interested in a bulk order to save postage, let's
talk.  Or maybe I'll try the computer fair.
