Default Fastest USB flash drive?

Whats the fastest 16 or 32 GB flash drive in terms of write speeds from you experience?

Do not want or am not interested in the OCZ throttle.

TIA>

Also wanted to add: looking for a flash drive with constantly over 25 MB/s write speeds, from user benchmarks not manufacture specs!

I don't know about 16GB but I read that the Lexar FireFly was one of the fastest and I bought a 8GB one for $15 on sale pricematched at FS.

Wasnt a lot of the firefly's recalled as they could get hot enough to burn or even turn into a fireball?

From what I heard they suck at write speed but are decent at read speed....the exact opposite of what the OP wants.
