Extremely slow read and write speeds
19 August 2015
Summary: Warning, this drive is exceptionally SLOWWWWWwwwwwwww... I've used a number of the similarly-designed 16GB drives, and while they don't scream, they are no where near as slow as this 32GB model. It's much slower than the majority of other USB 2.0 drives I've used.
Summary: This memory stick is one huge nigtmare. When you copy a large file it starts at a good speed, when you get to about 2GB it turns to cruse, which is of exactly 10.8GB/sec. It takes about 2 hours to copy 50GB. This stick is completely useless. Real USB 3 takes 8 minutes to copy 50GB.
It's not Kingston. It's this certain model (DataTraveler SE9 64GB)

Summary: I've been using Kingston USB Drivers since college as they were the one brand that provided the type of consistency that was satisfying. However, this certain model (Data Traveler SE9 64GB) was the first Kingston that was acting up very frequently.
Summary: I have had this for almost 9 moths. I love the design and compact nature of this drive, but the pros stop there...... first week, the circuit board pulled out of the metal sleeve that is the thumb drive, i glued it back in. the data read/write speeds are almost 1/2 of what is advertised...
Summary: These are really flaky drives on windows 7 64bit. They are seen and not seen by the OS all the time. I'll be in the process of transferring files and bam the OS can't see the thumbdrives. Really slow transfers to the thumb drives also. Not that impressed at all.
Pros: I really like the form factor on these; they are really strong and as a solid piece, they hold up well to abuse. I got one for my wife a year ago, and she still has not managed to destroy it (other drives came back in pieces). When they went on sale, I picked up 6 more for my office as we use the...
Cons: This drive is abysmally slow. I zeroize the drives with dd on a Linux machine, and typically, I get around 20-27 MB/s write speed on USB2 plugs. These drives write zeros at 4 MB/s. I have heard about Kingston and slow memory, but 4 MB/s? I can almost wipe two of my 64 GB Patriot Flash drives in t...
Summary: The DTSE9 is a 2.0 USB Flash Drive and it is painfully slow when transfering data... However they all still work! But if speed is something that you value look else where... I currently use the drives for small created files that are ness than a Gigabite so the transfer is not so painful, but if its...
