Summary: So far we have had no fialures our only complaint is that they are slow for writing. Read speeds are just fine. Since we only use them for data transfer where there is no network and not for data storage I can't comment on life or data retension.
Excerpt: Slim and small just like the description. Works great. The only thing i would change is it does not have any type of cover over it so i am always afraid something will get inside and damage it.
Summary: i bought two of these (16gb and 32gb). i had read the reviews about the speed of these drives but bought them anyway as i've always had good experiences with kingston flash drives. to say that this drive is slow is a great understatement. i'm using it for purposes of storing mp3's so the read rate isn't much of a big deal. but writing tons of files takes forever.
Pros: nice compact design price was good fits on a key ring
Cons: slow.. slowwww.. slowwwwww... gets warm with consistent reading/writing.
Summary: I bought the 32 gb drive, and that one has lasted for a long time now! but this one has lasted for only a few months after acting faulty and deleting files all the time! I formatted, re-booted and did all the works on it to try and rid it of it's problems, but to no avail. then suddenly it's GUTS came out, and has stopped working all together...obviously. I think it's a hit-or-miss...for a 64 gb, you'll obviously be using it a lot.
Summary: Check out the "Team C125" metal flashdrive. Bought it at the same time as the Kingston DataTraveler and its still chugging away. I honestly expected the Kingston to last longer as it has the brand name behind it.
Pros: Made of metal.
Cons: It died after about 6 months. PC sees the device but can't format it or access any files on it.
