Faulty then dead

Summary: Plus took weeks to arrive from China. I'd like to know that before I buy.
Pros: Love the metal case
Cons: Formatted exFat 128kb. Stopped working at 10.2gb. Tried to format now 0gb available. Tried reset to original settings. Still 0gb available. Tried format NTFS. Still 0gb available. Wasted too much money.
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.
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: If this device were much faster, and had a decent lifespan then it would be nice. However, this is twice now I have purchased this exact same memory stick, and twice now I have had the same exact problems. Perhaps it is due to bad manufacturing, or just bad luck.
Pros: Light, small, compact
Cons: Just like the first one of these I bought, it lasted about 45 days and died on me. Has a ton of junk files that you cannot delete even using disk part. I have tried to talk to customer support and all they said is if I cannot fix it using disk part, then I need to send it in and get another in th...
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.
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.
