Keychain loop broke within a week
Kathie Long "cykkler", Amazon

Summary: Kensington has responded fairly well to complaints, but the keychain loop, made of plastic, is flimsy. I have lost several of these things and won't purchase any more. In the end, it is cheaper to purchase a more durable product.
Summary: It is described as "8 GB High-Speed USB Flash Drive DTIG3/8GBZ". A quick reading made me think it was a 3.0 drive it was not. But since I have an old laptop that is only 2.0, I still expected it to be faster than the PNY I was replacing. Boy was I wrong. It wrote at .5 MB/S. In the same order I got a "Patriot Supersonic Boost XT USB 3.0 8GB Flash Drive" . I tried it in my 2.0 laptop and the same data wrote at 5 MB/S. That is 10 times faster on the same USB 2.0 port.
Summary: I need not write much more than "Bostonian" did. Besides being slow, the case is impossibly slippery, highly polished plastic. I handed this to several people and gave them a simple task: "Please remove the cap." Imagine my joy watching every person I gave this to trying to remove the cap, watching their fingers, large and small, consistently slip off the cap, both from the top and bottom, or when grasped by the sides.
A big step back from the last generation of Kingston DataTraveler.

Summary: I bought this USB drive without any hesitation, because I've been using the older model for years and very happy with DataTraveler's design/quality/performance/durability. But I was wrong. The person who designed this 3rd generation Kingston DataTraveler is an idiot. Here are the reasons: 1.
Summary: I thought I would buy a nice big 4 gig stick for only $8. Well this thing works about 30% of the time. Most of the time I plug it in and it does not even respond. Other times it opens up and shows me the files on it for awhile and then locks up. Really frustrating. None of my 3 other sticks do this.
Summary: Kommunikation überhaupt nicht möglich, reagiert nicht auf Mails!!!!!! Mehrmals um Rechnung gebeten aber keinerlei reaktion, da ich selber wiederverkäufer bin, brauche ich eine Rechnung mit ausgewiesener Mehrwersteuer. Gar nicht empfehlenswert! Ist das letzte mal das ich bei diesem Händler bestellt habe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
