The largest I have, and I think it's the largest ones they have for usb sticks right now, is about 16gb. Mine is the cruzer contour by SanDisk.

If you're looking for more, you can settle for a portable usb hard drive. I have one from freecom, its exactly 2.5in in width and 4in in height. Mine stores up to 320gb of data. It's not a usb stick, but it sure is small and light enough to be considered a slightly fat one.

If that doesn't suit you however, you can get yourself a mini hardrive, its usb compatible and others can be wirelessly connected as well. The only thing is some may need to have an installation and or take up your laptop's power. It can hold data from up to 750gb, to prices as low as £80. If you're looking for some extra space (and by that I mean a lot) then it'll probably be a good idea to consider in investing on this one.

I've seen a few 32GB ones, but from reviews they aren't as fast and all that.

I have heard of 32GB, but I felt it is slow.

The biggest one and fastest one I ever used was a 4GB Memorex USB.

It was very, very fast, I used to play games on it at school (like NFS)

True dat. Perhaps manufacturers produce them with sizes in mind, as opposed to speed etc.

They even have to keep in mind the price. I mean, there is a certain budget someone can spend on a USB stick.

I wouldn't mind 32GB on flash if it was much faster than my hard drive lol. That could potentially speed up my computer and make my laptop shock proof :D
