Summary: I just retired my second unit of this product. The metal casing implied durability but that hasn't been my experience. The first one stopped mounting after 4 months. I sent it back to Kingston and they replaced it with another unit. However the shipping cost was equivalent to the purchase price, so it wasn't really a free replacement. Do yourself a favor and buy something else.
Pros: - Small - There's a loop built in to the design, so you don't have to deal with those wire rings.
Summary: I bought 3 of these drives and just threw out the last one. the guts of all 3 fell out and made it unusable. I have thrown all of them out. I have had other Kingston drives and had no trouble like this.
Pros: size, metal housing, fits on key ring.
Cons: The guts of the 3 I bought fell out. They lasted under 1 year.
Summary: Great product, but even though there are both gold and silver to choose from, they send whatever they want. I had a silver and wanted the gold, so when they offered it at a great price I selected the gold, but got the silver. Othere than that, they should make all of their drives like this. the only one potential problem could be because it has an open end. It migth get pocket lint in it and need to be blown out before it gets stuck in there.
Summary: This is not a complaint towards Kingston, as I have purchased quite a few of these units in the past and they are great. Unfortunately that was not the case with this unit though as it is a hacked 8GB (shows up as 64GB but the data corrupts and writes slow after writing more than 7GB)
Excerpt: I used to have quite a lot of memory made by Kingston and expected the Flas drive of similar quality. Boy, was I surprised. plug the drive in and one can wait a long time before its even accessible. One can easy get a coffee and drink that one too before the PC even is able to read or write anything on this drive.I never had a Flash drive that slow and it acted like that on all computer I have (anything from Windows XP to Windows 8.1)
