Pros: It has a pretty blue-colored connector just like a real USB3 thumb-drive.
Cons: The blue-colored connector is the ONLY feature that this has with a real USB3 thumbdrive. The transfer speeds are laughably bad. These "USB3 Compatible" drives are presently the computer industry's worst bold-faced lie, AFAICT.
Pros: I've only used this drive once since I bought it--the purchase was for a specialized purpose--but it worked as well as every other Kingston product I've ever used. Simple, conservatively rated, rock solid.
