  • Pros: Small and has storage space.
  • Cons: Painfully slow. Takes 3-4 minutes to transfer a 1.5gb file. Going to go with another brand. I have 6 year old 2gb drive faster than this thing.

Poor warranty

Bob, TigerDirect.com

  • Summary: The first time I removed this USB drive from my computer, the plastic portion partially pulled away from the medal portion. I contacted Kingston about it and they said they would replace it (gave me an RMA no.) BUT I would have to pay for the return shipping. Shipping cost would be close to the purchase cost. In my opinion if it is defective, they should pay for the shipping. Never going to buy from Kingston again.

Not really a USB 3.0 device

Christine A., Newegg
24 May 2013
  • Summary: The device closest in price to the Kingston was the Team. Transfer rate on my test with the Team was about 1 minute, 43 seconds. With the Kingston, 6 minutes, 29 seconds. The other two flash drives tested were faster than the Team.
  • Pros: Like the sliding case and it seems to be very sturdy.
  • Cons: This is an allegedly a USB 3.0 device, but it performs at only slighter better than 2.0 speeds. It was not a scientific test run, but I did test basic speeds with various USB 3.0 flash sticks from Silicon Power, Patriot, and Team in addition to this device.

"Keep looking - many better ones exist"

CNET
12 January 2005
  • Pros: The security software (Travelersafe) has been the most convenient to use. Very weak protection but would deter casual intruders. I've had this for over 1 year and have been using it as my main portable storage because of the software convenince.
  • Cons: Lost all of my (protected) data - nearly 1GB. Running Travelersafe to access my protected share results in a report that I do not have a protected share. Windows still shows that less than 100MB is on the drive (the other 900+MB are in the protected share
