Not using these drives

How slow can you go?

Brendan W., Newegg
23 April 2015
  • 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...

Was great - then died

michael y., Newegg
20 November 2014
  • Summary: Hopefully Newegg will take care of me
  • Pros: In my previous recent review I was pleased with this drive, but now it has died all of a sudden, and when I plug it in it either shuts the computer down or the drive doesn't show up on the drive page at all. Ive never had a bad Kingston product so this is a first, but nothing is perfect so will c...

Possibly got a dud?

Peter O., Newegg
25 October 2014
  • Summary: So far it has not corrupted any of my data, but I'm watching its performance carefully. I bought this product specifically because it was a Kingston brand.
  • Pros: Large Capacity Excellent Price (<$1/GB) Metallic casing makes it small and sleek
  • Cons: I must have received some memory from a bad batch, because it overheats like crazy if I try to copy more than a few megabytes at a time. The outer case metal gets very warm to the touch, so we're seeing at least a 15 degree C temp rise after only a few minutes. When moving several gigabytes, the ...

too small

User Review

Louis C., Newegg
5 September 2014
  • Pros: Tough case, and large hole for key ring that cannot break off or otherwise fail, as so many other attachment points do.
  • Cons: Often does not get recognized by several Windows machines, unless inserted and removed several times. Works flawlessly when it finally DOES get recognized, but it's annoying to have to play around until the computer finds it. This has happened on machines with Vista, Win 7, and Win 8 OS.

  • Summary: So far so good – just received it today. Interesting that the request arrived the same day I received the Kingston 64GB. May not keep this e-mail for a year – that would be a time to see if it survives some use.

Gets really hot

Mr. J., Newegg
18 July 2014
  • 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. Nice metal finish.
  • 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.
