    Yes, that's why I bought it. Its an SD50 16GB USB drive, on a good sale. Turns out its made in China but what isn't.

    Yes, those WindowsToGo drives are not cheap. I guess the security and high risk required with executive's activity requires some complexity. I would want to use some secure form of a USB drive for that too if I were using it for proprietary info and to avoid malware. Kingston seems to recently have acquired Ironkey. Ironkeys are HIPAA compliant (most of them I think).

    They are cool.

    At you sure it wasn't just assembled in the USA? USB Flash Drives Made in America
    Yeah, maybe so since everything is made in China. But the thing with the Chinese products some places use better material over others, so again it depends on the Chinese company . And I'm not just referring to usb products, in general I mean
