  • Summary: Works as advertised. The cap stays on well. Much more rugged and durable than SanDisk extreme 3.0 whose sliding extension broke in a matter of weeks.

fast data transfer on large files

Gerardo Sandoval Hernandez, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • 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). Also had to reformat to NTFS to get those large files uploaded to the traveler (again it's a windows thing; I think); the default format is fat32.

Fast and fat !!!!

Stephen Lanza, Amazon
1 May 2014
  • 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 cable into this 2nd port.

Fast enough for bootable OS

John C Kenworthy, Amazon
24 March 2014
  • 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. This drive does not get 5 stars only because one of the other drives I have used runs more quickly than this one (but this one appears more reliable so far) I have been using it 3-5 times per week for...

Not a slim flashdrive, but definitely fast.....

William H Percy, Amazon
17 March 2014
  • 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 because of their physical size (I measured them at 14mm/0.55in), so you will need an empty port in between if you plan on doing this (unless you have them side by side and not...

Good, fast and fat

Stormy seas, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • 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. Five to seven mm seperation is the normal spacing between USB ports and is inadaquate for this stick.

So far so good

Westlake, Amazon
8 February 2014
  • Summary: Pros: The read and write speeds are wonderful. Excellent in USB3, very good in USB2. Attaches to my keyring. Cons (all minor): Since the drive is thick, it might block an adjacent USB port. However, since the connector is not centered with the body of the drive, you can position the "thick" side of the drive away from one adjacent port. This may require swapping ports with an adjacent USB device. Cap design.

Kingston Data Traveler Malfunctions on USB 3.0 Ports

gamesmith "gamesmith", Amazon
15 November 2013
  • 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. It will scan itself and become available for use temporarily. I tried reformatting it, but its behavior did not improve.
