Summary: Bottom line: The drive doesn't work consistently across multiple PC manufacturers and brands. Not reliable enough for my work.
Pros: Small USB contacts are well protected when the cover is closed.
Cons: Some PCs don't like it. I bought this to use as a backup USB drive for work. I keep it on my keyring as I tend to forget my other, larger USB drives sometimes. Getting a PC to recognize the drive is hit or miss. Dell Optiplex 745's don't seem to like it at all, but I've had PCs of all makes and m...
Summary: Plugged it into my Computer and formatted it for use, Unplugged it and set it on my desk. 4 months later went to use it and the unit just heats up and does not registry that a usb drive is plugged in. Tried on 3 different windows 7 pc's.
Pros: Tiny Cheap at the time
Cons: Dead after Format. Unit getting hot to touch
Cons: Died after about 2 months of use...rma'd them...died again. Used as a boot drive so they probably just got worn out. I have other usb flash drives that still work fine as boot drives so maybe these are just incredibly low quality
Summary: I love the size and design, but it lacks a lot in durability and reliability. If you're planning to use it for small documents then it's fine. If you're planning on using this in the IT field, I would definitely recommend that you search harder.
Pros: Compact size, space (GB), brand, fits on my key chain, ultra portable. Great for small files like doc, xml, pdf, jpg, and small exe files 10-50MB
Cons: The plastic packaging is way more durable then the brittle black plastic this thing is made with. It chips small bits plastics here and there when plugging and removing from USB ports. It has trouble writing large data around 300MB- 600MB. It write fast for a few seconds, then stalls, and repeats...
Summary: My other Kingston USB drive works great...It has a light to show it is working....This one does not have that little light and has the bad mini plug that will not be OK..I will just put the drive somewhere.
Pros: Kingston is a great brand...My other Kingston USB drive works great..Kingston has a good reputation...They make great USB drives...My other Kingston USB drive works great.
Cons: The USB plug connection is a miniplug and not the full USB plug...The device needs a full USB plug and not the mini plug it has...I cannot not use it...My other Kingston USB drive works great..
Summary: Loved the small size and folding protecting case..... but alas, mines heading for the trash can.
Pros: Small size.... worked great for a while
Cons: I've had this drive a few months now and it worked great for 2 months. I program industrial computers and transfer a lot of files between machines, a lot of the machines can not see it now, I have no clue why..... but I'm feeling the frustration and loss of $
