Customer Support

Dan C., Newegg
8 September 2011
  • Pros: N/A
  • Cons: I contacted Kingston on a different USB drive to see if it was Readyboost capable. Not only did they say that one wasn't, but none of their drives had that capability. Either the listing here for this drive is wrong, or their tech support isn't very good.

Kingston 8GB drive review

Mark M., Newegg
24 May 2011
  • Summary: Using this drive for my tools, installation files, and storage for a couple of .iso's. Quick, no stupid 3rd party bloatware taking up space, and includes a loop for keychain lanyards. Who can beat that?!
  • Pros: Transfer speeds are great, easy to use, casing is durable.
  • Cons: The actual flash drive components can be pulled from the USB casing, so be careful when extracting this drive from a USB port. The drive still works fine, I have had no issues with speed or reliability, despite this downfall

good but not what i hoped

James T., Newegg
30 December 2010
  • Summary: the little rotating cover moves very freely, without locking into place open or closed, it can pretty much open itself in your pocket or whatever you're carrying it in, for lint to get into the connector.
  • Pros: Small, readyboost, can divide the drive into private and public spaces, about as fast as you would expect it to be for under 20 dollars. looks good too.
  • Cons: It doesn't require a password to format the drive.. infact it gives you the option to at the password prompt under 'settings' if this were stolen or lost the data would be safe from people seeing it but the thief's have themselves a good usb drive for their own use. not what i was expecting. i ju...

8 GB mean 7.46 GiB

Drew T., Newegg
10 November 2010
  • Summary: There is a Difference for an SI GB vs IEC binary prefixes. Since a computer works in binary it works in folds so 2, 4, 8, 16, 32... until 1024 which is the marker for a new prefix aka Mebi-byte not the same as megabyte. If you take 1024 to the 3rd power you get 1,073,741,824 bytes.
  • Pros: Like the attached swivel cap. Tend to misplace caps that snap on.
  • Cons: Still Exposes the end to some debris but doesn't bother me that much.

Nice design for on the go

Anonymous, Newegg
23 October 2010
  • Summary: I liked the included security software put on the drive but unfortunately I couldn't use it on my work computers. They won't let you run the program off a drive. Just their security measures but something to consider if you're buying this for on the go use.
  • Pros: I needed a flash drive without a cap. This one worked. Used Kingston before, seems to have good quality for the decent price I paid.
  • Cons: Front part of the inside of the swinging cover collects some dust and the finish gets scratched up in your pocket but I'm not sure I can really blame the flash drive for either of those.

Not really 8GB

Nelson I., Newegg
9 April 2010
  • Summary: I will look more into this. I may return the device to Newegg and ask for a different brand.
  • Pros: It seems to be fast. The form is good.
  • Cons: The drive description says it is an 8GB USB flash drive. It most certainly is not. It is a 7.46GB drive. When I received the drive I did not know that it came with encryption software. The first thing I did was remove the encryption software by formatting the drive. It reported 7.46GB drive befor...

Good flash drive

Geoffrey S., Newegg
10 February 2010
  • Summary: Excellent design, cheap price, decent read/write speed. I've never used a Kingston product I didn't like...
  • Pros: The rotating cover is nice, no cap to loose but you can still attach it to a lanyard. Bright blue LED, cutout in the rotating cover so it shows through. Different design on each side so right side up/right side down is easy to determine without looking at the USB plug. Read/write speed as expecte...
  • Cons: None as yet.

Great performance; lousy design

Jacob W., Newegg
14 October 2009
  • Summary: I removed the metal guard with a hex wrench because it was so annoying and I use a cap from another drive to protect the connector. The security program is Windows-only which probably means that the secure partition isn't visible on native Mac or Linux.
  • Pros: very snappy; even faster than my 8GB SuperTalent; hidden secure partition is a good idea; security program is well behaved and doesn't run when not in use
  • Cons: metal flip-around guard makes it difficult to insert at an angle; blue activity light is not visible except at a certain angle; guard doesn't really protect against dust getting in the connector

Nice Schtick

James N., Newegg
10 July 2009
  • Pros: Fast - Plenty of space. I use it to transport large documents and pictures and I am able to reserve 4M for Readyboost. Swing around metal cover works good.
  • Cons: Not really a con - It would be nice if they put the indicating light so that it shows on both sides of the stick.
