it actually depends on data u want to carry on it and size is important as well.

anyway, i'd recommend this one http://www.card-media.co.uk/codisk+mobe+usb.htm
and kingston products are also very reliable ones,

PC  pro did a test twelve months ago and rated this http://www.pcpro.co.uk/labs/76178/corsair-flash-voyager.html it may be a starting point.
Those made by memory manufacturers would be in my consideration, such as Patriot, Kingston, and Corsair.  Some are designed to have faster data transfer rates - the one made by Patriot is an example.

I have only USB 1.1, not USB 2.0

So, data transfer rate is my main consideration than the size..
If you don't have USB 2.0, the question of speed is irrelevant, because the USB 1.1 interface will be the bottleneck.  Here's a review of various flash drives, along with a sequel: http://arstechnica.com/reviews/hardware/flash.ars/1

it doesn't matter, all flach pen drives support both USB 1.1 and USB 2.0, i'd recomend to but USB 2.0 controller it doesn't cost much money. As for me i use Transcend 2Gb pen drive and i'm satisfied.
