Avoid buying from KIAZ7

Summary: I ordered a G3 Kingston 8 GB flash drive (as shown in the photos) from KIAZ7, but received a useless G4 flash drive instead. The unit received does not match the photos, and does not work with my laptop.
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: Just like other guy said, it doesn't have any light when it's working. I have others versions of this same class "DTIG3" in their versions of 4, 8 and 16 Gb. All of them have their leds, showing you when it's working.
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.
Summary: This was a real let down. I used it a few times and my files kept disappearing off of it. I'd take it to another PC and some of the files would be missing. I'd go to Fedex to print stuff and some of the files would be missing.
S...L...O...W and more expensive then older alternatives

Summary: Holy snails pace. I bought three of these slugs and a one GB file takes over 3 minutes to copy (5 MB/sec). I also bought an older 32 GB PNY drive for $10 less and it copies the same file in less than a minute (18 MB/sec). If this is G3, G1 must have been a real stunner.
