Very Fast!!!

Anonymous, Newegg
19 February 2012
  • Pros: Very, very, fast! It's like carrying around a tiny first generation SSD drive in my pocket. I've had this thing since 7/12/2011 and even though I had a board with a USB 3.0 port before I never bothered using it. My case sits under my desk and there is no USB 3.0 on the front of it. Well I bit the...
  • Cons: It's a good bit bulkier than most drives, but hey it's 32 GB and it's USB 3.0. Also, I knew it going in and I'm not knocking an egg off for it, but I really wish I didn't have to mess with a cap.

Not so Ultimate

Cari M., Newegg
5 February 2012
  • Summary: Just a little bit ticked off by it right now, I have a second one, brought from here that is still working just fine. Wondering if I should go back to USB 2.0 drives....... ho hum.
  • Pros: Was really fast when it worked! I even like the color and design.
  • Cons: Failed yesterday.... originally purchased not from NewEgg, on Oct 6th 2011 so it managed just under 4 months. Good thing Kingston have good warranties, just waiting for an RMA from them.

Good but big !

Laurent F., Newegg
10 September 2011
  • Summary: I had a problem when I plug this key on my computer: my wireless mouse does not work ! I have to plugin it with a wire. But I'm quite sure it's not related to the USB key, but the USB 3 hardware implementation (my motherboard was one of the first to support USB 3).
  • Pros: A good USB 3 key, which do his job quite well. One of the few which really use USB 3 to provide high transfer rate.
  • Cons: Well, it's ugly are much more cumbersome than I expected.

very quick

Peter E., Newegg
7 September 2011
  • Pros: Very fast. CrystalDiskMark gives ~90MB/s read and ~64MB/s write speeds. Most "USB3" drives can't give this kind of performance, and cost less. Mine is actually the earlier (slower) version before "G2", so performance should actually be better on the present version.
  • Cons: I paid $99 each, for three of these about 6 months ago. Waiting drops the price, but I've used them heavily in between so can't complain.
