Can I create a live USB (16GB) containing Ubuntu 11.10 and will it work fine?

The other day I tried to create a live USB (16gb) using a pen drive, but the performance was not smooth and/or fast. How can I overcome this issue? It would be cool if I can use 16GB USB seamlessly and without getting stuck. Please help.

    Unetbootin ( http://unetbootin.sourceforge.net/  )
    and 
    Universal USB Installer ( http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/

    two tools for creating a Live USB . 
    grab your copy of the program , or download it with the help of these programs , 
    follow simple prompts and you are good to go .

    and by performance , if you are trying to run live programs via USB , 
    the performance will always be less than when they have been installed .
    but even then , the performance is not that bad at all .

    the live USB works like a charm and seamlessly .
    on a good system you would hardly notice a difference while doing regular tasks on the Live USB .

    how ever if you want more performance , 
    you can try installing / creating a Live USB on a pendrive which Supports USB 3.0 .

    USB 3.0 is faster than the coneventional USB 2.0 , 
    but only comes in new systems ...

    try and see ...
