Pure Junk!

Richard Wortley "luvtoread", Amazon

  • Summary: I have had bad luck with Kingston products and will probably avoid them in the future. This drive worked fine for a few months then just stopped working. The warranty is a joke. Don't believe that they will support their products, they wont.

  • Summary: The true rating for this device is a 1 star not a 3. Due to the fact that I bought it instore I was not able to leave a lesser rating than a 3 star. P.O.S.! Will not buy Kingston data travelers again. Bought a Kingston 16gb 2.0 usb data traveler which was very affordable and compact that failed on me after 2 months of owning. Was told by NCIX staff that sometimes flash memory fails due to technology so I dismissed the failure.
  • Pros: Great Specs. Great Price esp. on sale
  • Cons: Non reliable

Business-like design

  • Summary: The speeds are not horrendous. A write speed of 5 MB/s is sufficient for the majority of usage cases. A high capacity Flash memory will always be slower, with all other factors being equal. The speed is limited by the memory configuration. Having a faster interface does not necessarily help. USB 3.0 is the latest hype.
  • Pros: Sturdy design without moving parts, looks great at a black computer case, and in a corproate environment where "enthusiast" devices might not. Small height allows to insert the device in the rear ports next to another plug. Verified compatibility with legacy USB 1.1 ports.
  • Cons: No LED to indicate activity, and warn that the device shouldn't be disconnected. This is usually non-issue with file transfers, as one can simply wait a couple of seconds afterwards, but might be a problem when applications are executed from the stick (and slowly updating their configuration). I am deducting only one Egg, because bulk file copying is still the most common application.

  • Summary: Not a bad usb key for the price. It could have been faster but it's hard to complain about the slow speed at this price. Use this one for pure storage purpose and not time senstive copy.
  • Pros: Usb 3, Good price, small
  • Cons: could be faster for a usb3

  • Summary: I always buy kingston, needed to replace a thumb drive, this one came up at a decent price. It's not noticeably faster than a USB 2.0 drive, but it was worth it.
  • Pros: Good price, small.
  • Cons: Not too fast, No LED, cap is easy to lose.

  • Summary: anyways, kingston is a good name so when these went on sale, I picked up 2 for office backup. It's usb 3 but it's maximum read/write speeds are only modestly faster than usb 2 in this model. for me, what's worse is the lack of a led light. It means I don't really know when data is finished being written to it. For my usage as a backup drive; not bad; but although I was thinking of getting more, I will probably bypass it.
  • Pros: compact. fairly stylish. cheap
  • Cons: no led light. not that fast

Garbage

  • Summary: My employer asked me to give them a list of hardware I would need, so I requested the Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Pro USB 3.0 64GB, and they ordered this piece of junk instead... there's a reason I chose the Mushkin and not this Kingston.
  • Pros: Read speeds were decent at 60 MB, at least those were a little higher than what you can achieve with a USB 2.0 drive.
  • Cons: Completely died after 3 months. Write speeds were just horrendous, never got above 11 MB.
