Pros: Small and compact. Doesn't stick out like my other flash drives so I can't knock into and tweak the usb ports. :) Good Storage/Price.
Cons: Really slow. I got it mainly for transferring movies from my computer and the max it is going right now is about 2.83mb/s. Ouch. I am not sure if this is normal or what but my 4g Sony would transfer at about 6mb/s. Oh well, I'll just transfer overnight. :)
Pros: It's nice to have something that offers 64GB of storage. I can't really say too much more about it being good.
Cons: Alright, so perhaps it's because I'm spoiled on better alternatives that I think that this drive is not good. So I'll give my current point of comparison: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820211764 The ADATA drive says that it offers 90MB/s read and 40MB/s write, and the actu...
Summary: Excellent little metal drive. I love the hardware security that will wipe it if the wrong password is entered incorrectly 10 times in case it is lost or stolen. To use it- as soon as you plug it in type your password on the keyboard. Do not wait for a box to open to enter password.
Summary: I ordered 2 of these little USB drives so I could have a spare (never can have too many) and another to send some data to family out of state. I give this little thumb drive 5 eggs since it was a great price, it has decent read/write speeds and compact.
Pros: Small, large capacity, USB jack cover
Cons: Small, USB jack cover (These are not really cons, just things that may be good or bad to you).
Sturdiest and most reliable flash drive I've ever purchased

Summary: As a password-protected USB flash drive that works on both Mac and PC (and that's right from the gate, meaning you don't have to do any reformatting or partitioning), the design and feel of it just speaks volumes to the sense of security you get from using this as your small backup drive.
Summary: Formatted it and used it to save some stuff before working on a system. When done, reformatted it and used it to save a system image inside the case. The reviews indicated a tolerance to temperature issues and pocket dust.
Pros: I read the reviews and Kingston's responses before I bought it. It is not fast - it is not supposed to be. If you want a fast USB 2 Thumb Drive look elsewhere. Yes, it formatted at less than the advertised 64GB vs. 57.8. I knew this from the reviews With no insult intended to Kingston, it is a tr...
Cons: None really. Read the reviews and Kingston's responses and if this tough tractor is not what you want then look elsewhere.
