Summary: I didn't know how this thing was gonna work after I got 2 other thumbs that failed after 2 weeks (Team Group. AVOID THEM!) I must say I'm quite happy, I spent a little extra and received much better quality.
Pros: Awesome thumb drive. Super durable, I feel I could run over this thing with a truck and it would still work. Faster then most thumb drives. I use it with my 360 to transport movies or music, and for that, it's awesome.
Cons: Not so much a con, but the cover isn't secured tightly on the thumb drive when it's attached to the back. When it covers the male end it's fine, but when in use it and put the cover on the rear, it could fall off very easily, (not worth removing an egg though)
Summary: If u search benchmarks, this is near or at the top. Also most of the results ar close, showing that you have less of a chance of getting a dud.
Pros: Very fast transfer speeds, without getting hot. Rubberized, but doesn't steal all my pocket lint. Worth the extra money, if speed and reliability matter to you. Hey, it's ur stuff. This is my second one I'm buying, because I need more space. The other one is still fast and reliiable, and almost a...
Cons: I haven't lost mine, but cap can be easy to lose. Good thing it's orange, I guess.
Summary: Using for a music drive in my car. I used to use a 1gb supertalent from 2007 when a 1gb drive still costed $22. The read speed increase improved the perfromance of my car's usb enabled head unit. Again extremely happy with Newegg and Kingston for delivering such a nice inexpensive drive
Pros: Copied an entire music library to the drive, average speed for real world write was ~14MB/s. I bought this primarily for the durability, and color. The rubberized casing in orange makes it hard to miss. The drive still maintains a slim enough profile to be friendly to adjacent usb connection
Summary: DThis drive is twice as fast as my Sandisk Cruzer according to the Disk Utility in Ubuntu, but with some coping tests the Sandisk reads/writes at ~2MB/s and the Kingston reads/writes at ~25MB/s.
Pros: Fast, Fast, Fast, Fast, and Durable
Cons: The cap doesn't really have a place to be held when plugged in.
Pros: This thing is great. durable, nice feel to it w/ the rubber grip and its bright orange so its easy to see if it falls to the floor or out of your pocket while driving. i normally keep it in a big full of other stuff, so it stands out pretty easy. I work in the oil field and require to have a lot ...
Cons: The lanyard it comes w/ isn't that useful for me but I put it in a bag anyway, so no big deal.
Summary: The R500 is Kingston's latest and they didn't disappoint. The Color is a nice touch, overall a high quality, fast flash drive with great protection for durability. I just ordered two more for my family.
Pros: Performance is excellent and a tad better in write speeds than the Mushkin Mulhilland flash drives which I own several of. I prefer this drive over the Mushkins due to the rubber coating and extra protection it provides to the flash drive. I would not part with my Mushkins, they are high quality ...
