Summary: I'm pretty amazed at the value of USB sticks now. I pick these up when they are on super sale ($13) and use them to send pictures through postal service, since they are tiny. The old fat32 file system is readable on any OS, but remember that the drive has to be formatted to something more modern to deal with large file sizes. I'm also amazed by how well the Kingston products have held up in very tough circumstances such as running Linux distributions from them.
Pros: Price on sale., Very tiny size which helps when using on computers crowded with stuff plugged into USB ports, or in posting to send pictures etc., Five year warranty., Looks great!
Cons: Great looking metal casing scratches easily., Speed isn't great, but suitable for most purposes.
Summary: If I could f-ck a USB key, I would have sex with this thing...it's gorgy. Sleek, and sexy as sh-t. And strong. I was blown away at how sturdy this thing is compared to some USB keys these days. It's small enough to be the pull-tab on a zipper on your coat or luggage. In fact, if I have need to pull a Snowden and get secret files out of the country, that's what I'm doing. I've had absolutely no problems using it (and I use it several times a day). It's fast, as expected.
Excerpt: I was looking for the smallest possible memory stick to attach to my RSA token. I need to be able to transfer files from computer to computer when traveling with colleagues, or to print files while I'm on the road, so whatever I use needs to be compact and durable. I was looking for an even smaller memory stick, but this was the closest I could find. I was attracted to it because it is all metal, so it can't crack like the plastic one I had before.
Summary: This 16GB usb is super sleek and compact. I was pretty surprised by its size. I'm unsure of transfer speeds as i mainly use it for transferring word docs and PDF's. The build quality appears excellent and it looks like it will last a while. Can't go wrong with Kingston!
Summary: When it comes down to sending pictures and video, for people to just insert in a computer and view - it's hard to beat these tiny thumb drives at $20+ on sale. Usually mail doesn't go missing and so I include two of these so one makes it through any X-ray machines. Relatives deleting and putting their pics on to email to me solves any issues.
Pros: My two appear to be working OK., I got them on sale for just over $20, so super value., They are a great way of mailing pictures and video which now are of pretty large size., Super warranty and I've never had any issues with products from this manufacturer.
Cons: These are the common USB 2 variety which are slow - but great for mailing with HD pictures and video. Set writes for overnight.., They look really pretty, but soon mark (scratch) up when used, even from USB slots.
