A last note, if you are also using the flash drive for porting files between a Windows based machine and a MAC, NTFS is not an option, since MAC cannot read NTFS partitions.

Strictly speaking, this is not true.  There is now native support for NTFS (both read and write) in Mac OS that's been there for a while now but that is disabled by default.  There are also third-party tools available for earlier Mac OS versions that do not have native support for NTFS.   A quick web search on "Mac OS NTFS Support" in the search engine of your choice will bring up the information you need should you wish to enable read-write access to NTFS volumes.  Read access was available ahead of write access.
