has capacity but transfer speed too slow
13 June 2014
Summary: I originally got a couple of these for use as backup for my photographs when traveling. Still works but the transfer speed with USB2.0 is snail like. And its not my PC or laptop. Other drives (flash and HDD) all transfer files much faster. Disappointing, but the next gen seem better and faster.
Summary: Takes a long time to transfer files. There appears to be a lag t various moments in the transfer process every time. I am now writing another sentence because amazon says I need twenty more words and yet there is nothing else to say about this product.
Summary: Cap is hard to remove :( Item has an attachment point for ring/string/other to pull out of USB port. I attached a key ring, but the cheap plastic attachment point broke due to thin plastic/bad design. :( So ergonomic + attachment problem. The memory part works OK.
Summary: First test. Write 26 GB of files, mostly large 1 GB in size. Averages around 5-6 MB/sec. Windows estimates it will take an 1 hour to complete the write. Who knows. maybe it will change to two hours. Poor.
Summary: One of the SLOWEST USB drives I've ever had. 5Mb/sec write speed took almost 4 minutes to upload 1.5 Gigs to the drive. Not for use for a quick, grab, upload and run out the door drive. Great price, but I guess you get what you pay for.
Summary: First, Kingston engineers a solid flash drive on the electronics side of the product. I've tried many different flash drives that were less than satisfactory (flash drives that won't work when plugged into certain computers, crash easily, etc.
Summary: Priced right. BUT.... 1. My main beef is that the cover/lid is almost impossible to remove. It is shaped on a slope, so it gets smaller, and your fingers slip. And it's REALLY TIGHT. After struggling with it twice, I decided it was better to throw away the cover. 2.
