Default FASTEST USB drive?

I'm doing research and I get mixed results on the fastest USB drive on the market. I don't want any $1,000 German precision-engineered stuff with 1024-bit AES encryption or any crazy stuff like that. I want it to be at least 4gb, and hella fast. Preferably under $120 though. Right now I'm caught between the Cruzer Contour and the Patriot Magnum, but then there's even guys in between like Patrior XPorter XT...it gets a bit confusing after awhile.. :(

Slightly off-topic, but what about a eSata key? Supposedly they're far far faster than Any usb key. (Searching for links now....)

Preferably USB as I am unsure of the performance/cost ratios, or existence, of eSATA keys, as compared to that of USB keys. Although some links would certainly help! =D
