I was disappointed that some of the more recent candidates aren't in there, including OCZ Rally2 (replaces original Rally), ATP ToughDrive (30/20MB), Memina Rocket (30/20MB), Patriot Xporter XT (32MB), and last but not the least, Buffalo FireStix RUF2 Type-R (32/27MB). If SanDisk Extreme IV CompactFlash[1]'s speed is of any indication, there may be a USB varient waiting in near future. Too bad nobody in North America sold the Buffalo flash....

I think it would have been useful to identify more clearly what type boot-disk formatting was allowed by the drives. For example, I have been clobbered by the Apacer HT203 (previous model) only allowing itself to be formatted as a bootable ZIP format drive. This format has quite limited support as a bootable option by most BIOS's. Therefor I could not boot my thinkpad of of it. The ability to be able to boot off a flash drive is an important criteria to any evaluation.
