Will work fine on an external disc 3,600 RPM?

Hello guys,

I'm glad to find Firefox Portable. I believed something like that must exist. I would like to take my Firefox with my bookmarks and saved passwords everywhere with me on a USB flash disc. It will come in really handy especially on vacation, surfing the net in NetCafes.

I'm going to buy a USB flash disc on which I'll be using my Firefox Portable. I'd like to buy this one: http://www.westerndigital.com/en/products/Products.asp?DriveID=226
6GB USB flash / external disc and I can have it for as low as ~$40 only (I think it's a great price for a 6GB flash disc). However, this flash (external) drive has only 3,600 RPM (nominal) rotational speed. Won't it slow down my Firefox Portable?

Shall I rather buy a standard Corsair or A-Data flash drive? But these are more expensive.

Once Firefox loads into memory, it should run just fine from the WD disk.

One clarification: You refer top the WD product as a "6GB flash disc"...it's a hard drive (not flash memory) hence the rotation speed quoted (3,600 RPM).

I thought I read some reviews of the WD saying the USB connector was weak and prone to breaking, but I can't find them and the reviews on pricegrabber.com look pretty good so I guess I was mixing some products up in my head.

Thank you for your reply and

Thank you for your reply and link to the review.

OK, so I'll buy the WD 6GB external hard drive. It comes with 3 years warranty, so they will give me a new one in case there are any problems with the connector.
