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.
Excerpt: I placed all my medical info on the drive and placed it on a necklace to be sure anyone can access it quickly as it has a hole for the neclase to go thru. Bracelets let info inside get wet and can't read and not much room to put info inside on a note paper. A drive has much room for all information and you can place it on the drive in mutiple formats. All medical professionals can easily access it on a laptop or desktop computer.
