best USB jump drive?

Thumb drive, jump drive, flash, key chain... what ever you want to call it... I need a new one since the old one got broke. I did have a 512mb model but am looking at 1 gig units now. I do use the drive on both Mac and PC at school and at home.
Any advice? One thing I noticed about my old model was it wouldn't run off of the USB port on the apple keyboards at school... had to be plugged directly into the tower. Is energy requirements a concern? Another thing that would be great is a model with software that syncs files from the drive to the computer. Do I have to depend on the software that comes with the drive for this or is there after market shareware that will do a better job? What about speeds?
My old model was a Simpletech Banzai. It did the job and I had no complaints. It seems like the technology is pretty trouble free... does anyone know different?
Any insight is appreciated!
