Cost: 332 Rs (Amazon)

Transcend JetFlash 340: This model from transcend has 16GB capacity with high data read and write support. You may find that the best part of their flash drive is the after sales support for 5 years. This model also has support for the device with USB 2.0 OTG on regular connectors. Price is also a bit reasonable.

Strontium Nitro: This 16 GB model from has support for USB 2.0 OTG devices and PC. It has high data read and write support. It is also moderately priced for these features. The key-chain type design also makes it attractive.

Also let me know that if I use USB 3.0 pen drive in 2.0 port in my PC the speed will be same or different: When you connect the USB 3.0 on the ports of 2.0 support, the device falls back onto the backward compatibility mode. It doesn't matter if your PC has the USB 3.0 driver or not, the speed will be as per the hardware support and not the upgraded based on the new connected device. So it'll be different and decided by the USB bus speed decided by the port (which in your case is set on USB 2.0).

what if I use it (3.0 pen drive )via OTG cable to connect to smartphone it will support if yes what about speed of data transfer?: In such case the data transfer speed will be higher around 15 mb read and write or more, depends on the device.
