Summary: Bought this for my dad's Honda Accord and it skips music. This is the second drive that does that, so maybe not kingstons fault. Regular size thumbdrives work fine. It works fine in computers.
Summary: This was purchased for my husband to put his music on to be used with our new Kenwood KDC-355U car stereo. I liked the idea that it was small so it wouldn't stick out so far while in the stereo. It measures 1" x .5 - .75 with the cap on. In the usb drive it sticks out about .25". It works in the stereo but my husband thinks it's too small and it's black so not very visible.
Summary: The USB is as good as other USBs out there in the market. The size of this USB is really nice,super portable but... There is no fiber or a cord out of the box and that creates a problem because you need something to attach it to your key ring or whatever you want to attach it to.
Small and convenient but questionable build quality

Summary: I bought two of these little gems, an 8 and 32GB model. They are small and work well with my Asus notebook computer. Data transfer rates are not exceptional but normal. The biggest reason I can only give this product 3 stars is that the build quality is questionable. The tiny little plastic head on both of the ones I purchased is not positively fastened to the metal USB plug and I wonder when they are going to pull right off.
Summary: It works okay, but I wouldn't be happy if I were inserting and removing it daily, because it is so tight that I would be afraid that the plastic piece that it is mounted in would separate. As is it moved a little. I happen to be leaving it permanently inserted into my TV.
Summary: The product it self seems a little cheaply made but that doesn't matter to me. I use it on a daily basis, it stays in my car stereo deck all day in the Arizona heat and it still works. The only issue I have with this product is that it is so slow when writing to it. But its okay I write to it once maybe twice and it'll stay in the car.
Summary: I just got it. It is cute and small but write speeds are 2MB/sec. It is like USB1.1 (ony twice fast!). It would take more than 2 hours to fill in data. Don't buy this for transferring data. For read mostly purposes, it is fine. That is what I am intending to do! Sandisk Cruzer fit seems to have better write speed (4MB/sec) in a small scale factor. BTW, I only ran the "dd" once, so take the number with a grain of salt! dd if=/dev/zero of=.
