Summary: Purchased advertised special of 3-16GB USB3 thumb drives. Intent was to create external boot drive to use for repairing my families Macs (multiple operating systems). The software I tried to use to create the boot drives said all three had physical damaged areas and needed to be replaced.
Pros: Can't lose cap
Cons: Has place for ring to attach to key chain but no ring is included.
Summary: Price of the Lexar was essentially the same as Kingston. Sorry that I did not get a second Lexar. I thought the metal connector on Kingston was better, but did not realize the performance hit I would take.
Pros: Nice metal connector. Overall construction is fine.
Cons: Way too slow data transfer. I got only 35MB/s using HD Tune. Compare this with my Lexar S25 drive that gives over 225MB/s speed. Perhaps it is the Kingston USB 3 interface that is not operating at full speed, but something is wrong. I am rather disappointed.

Summary: Purchased this USB 3.0 stick to transfer files between computers. Read speed was fine. Write speeds of 12MB/s were slower than a PNY32GB (40MB/s) USB stick i previously purchased. Both USB 3.0 so i expected similar performance and because it wasn't, i was disappointed.
Summary: I use this little guy as a bootable Windows 10 recovery and it was very easy to do so! There weren't any hidden partitions, the USB 3.0 speeds work as advertised, and there's no cap to lose which makes my life marginally less stressful.
Summary: Supplier; 3C_Expert knocked me over with oustanding service. Fast delivery, XLINT packaging, documentation and quality of item delivered. Now if all seller could be like this, we would have something. Thank you!
Pros: Kingston 32G usb 3.0 for a knock out price. Nuff said :o)
Summary: Fine, inexpensive thumbdrive. Just one problem-it is too wide to fit in my MacBook Pro's USB ports if the other port is occupied. I had to find an old port expander-just bad design, no thinking. Also the "closing slide" isn't even useful.
Summary: It has a nice form factor, and there is a sliding cover for the USB port. This 16GB USB drive has a read speed of 121.2MB per second, and a write speed of 58.15 MB per second write speed (averaged over three runs of USBFlashBenchmark utility).
Summary: Bought 5 of them because I'm tired of writing ISO files for different operating systems constantly. 2 of the 5 are virtually DOA. I can write to them, but once I unplug them, plug them back in immediately - they need to be formatted.
