Summary: worth the price if you need to transfer large files. Can get up to 70-80MB/sec transfer rate. Had difficulty pluggin via USB hub. Had to connect it directly to computer to get it started. After that it started to work on the USB hub (could be my windows 7 pro or my McAfee anti virus; not sure).
Summary: This USB flash drive is extremely fast but it has one drawback. It is rather wide and bulky. It obstructs the 2nd USB port on my MacBook Pro such that I cannot use the 2nd port, even a fairly small USB cable like the one that connects my iPhone5s, without possibly damaging it by forcing another USB...
Summary: I bought this drive to use as a portable, bootable OS drive. I run OSX Mountain Lion on mine and it works very well. It take about an extra 30-60 seconds booting compared to an internal SSD on my MacBook Air. I have tried numerous drives and this one is in the top three.
Summary: This drive works perfectly and transfers large files at some pretty impressive USB 3.0 speeds, so no complaints about it in terms of function. However, please note that this is a fairly chunky flashdrive and, on my computers and hubs, it is not possible to stack two of them in adjacent USB ports...
Summary: I just bought this to transfer my digital RAW photo images. These files are up to 15 meg each and I have thousands of them. I'm not overly concerned with transfer speed but they seem to transfer quickly. My only complaint is the thickness of the stick.
Kingston Data Traveler Malfunctions on USB 3.0 Ports

Summary: The Kingston Data Traveler flash drive works as expected when inserted into a USB 2.0 port. However, when inserted into a USB 3.0 port, it drops out repeatedly. It can be recovered by either removing it and reinserting, or by double-clicking it in Windows Explorer.
