Gets really hot

Summary: I've used Kingston flash drives for years, and this is the first drive I've had that got this hot. I don't trust it not to cause issues with my hardware, or to be reliable. In fact, I'm just going to toss it. I wouldn't want anyone else to have issues because of the heat.
Pros: Compact form factor - fits within USB vertical stack on laptop without crowding the other port.
Cons: This thing gets super hot! Just plugging it in, it gets pretty warm - when reading or writing, it gets uncomfortably hot. I don't really use it, I get worried about permanent damage to either the drive or the USB port it's plugged into.
Summary: I initially ordered this one ship to store for $13, then a couple days later I got one of the "price reduced" emails for it for $11, so I ordered again at that price same drive. They came in the same day - I kept the $11 version, and returned the more expensive one right at the catalog center.
Excerpt: Bought about 40 of these for quick intra office information transfers. Our network went down and we had to move files quickly.For [$] these worked wonderfully. The customer service representative was supportive and a great assistance in making a decision. B&H was our first instinct when considering a store which would have the quantity, price, and reliability we needed.These were ready for pick up within an hour of ordering.Great purchase. Only con is these are TINY!
Excerpt: I already own this model flash drive and had been using it as additional game storage on my first generation xbox 360. It seems fast enough for the xbox and I have not had any performance issues to indicate otherwise. It is fairly small with a good construction feel. Also, there is no cap to worry about losing or breaking. I was happy enough with the first so I got another one.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible
