Summary: Kingston USB always is in my choice, I am using a lot of these USB ( 4GB, 8GB, 16GB, 32GB) for my slideshow w/ MP3. They never make me fails in any time, what I know per my hobby are: 4GB USB slideshow contains less than 100 photos; 8GB is for 300 Photos; 16GB is for less than 1,000 photos; 32GB is for couple thousand photos. It's still depending on characters (dot ?) to build each JPG picture, MP3 music is not matter to any kind of drive.
Not quite 64gb but it worked great. gave me about 58 gb

Summary: Not quite 64gb but it worked great. gave me about 58 gb. Which most if not all tend to give less space than they say. Some don't even give half of that and others don't work correctly when it comes to 64gb. However if you want to use it for your PS3/4 you need to look up how to convert it to ExFat as it is not readily available but it is easy to do once you know how.
Great drives for the first week, then they will become totally unreliable.

Summary: These flash drives are horrendous. I was a fan of Kingston before purchasing, and thought these were the best drives money could buy. I can't believe how wrong I was. I bought 3 of these. One died out of the box and had to be reformatted. One crashed after about 2 months of moderate use and had to be reformatted. And one just flat out doesn't work anymore. I can't format it, can't write to it, I can only access the files that were already on it.
Summary: This is a decent USB 3.0 thumb drive. It is not surprisingly fast, but is much faster than USB 2.0. It seems very reliable, and my wife uses it for her school file transfers. I can not use this for my own needs because it gets hot very fast. I picked up a different device for my own use, and let her keep this one. We are both quite happy. For the price and USB 3.0 performance, I would recommend this to anyone wanting or needing an economic but fast thumb drive.
Cheap? Yes. Very flawed on USB 3. Unreliable. IT professionals stay away!

Summary: These drives are unreliable. I bought two to supplement my Sandisk Extreme drives which are pricey. I just wanted to have a couple of drives for booting computers - low writes, lots of reads. They are so poorly implemented that they can't even handle that! Yes, the performance is mediocre - not what I bought them for.
Summary: even though it says 16GB, my system shows 14.4GB which to be honest it was expected but i did wish it to be a GB closer to the 16GB mark... regardless, on 3.0 ports, it transfers fast as expected and the product feels solid and sturdy
Summary: Over 1400 photos stored for sending to our daughter in the UK input her pictures. All the photos taken on our recent trip to England will be stored for viewing and transfer to DVDs for family members.
