Summary: I've had the drive for about 10 months. It doesn't work well with my Mac Leopard 10.5 OS, it locks up after an undetermined amount of time and it sometimes even brings the OS along with it. Apart from this, the construction is of poor quality. It came apart after 10 months of use, the plastic seems to be very cheap. I had to tape it back together with black tape. If you want a USB drive, try Kingston's more reliable/compatible/trusty DTI series or other brands.
Summary: OK got this yesterday. I am disappointed. Good price, nice idea. But would not recommend this for 4 reasons 1) slider switch seems flimsy and hard to operate 2) no ring for attaching to key rings or laynard... husband tried with a key ring to get it on but it pricked and hurt his finger. I spent twenty minutes trying to get it attached to something.
Summary: I needed another flash drive and liked Kingston products. I chose the Data Traveler 100 because the male end retracts into the case, and at first this seemed to be a good feature. The second time I used the drive it was accidentally bent as I moved my laptop. If it did not retract into the case it would have been more solid. It seems a little flimsy. I would not buy again. Other than this flaw, it does what it is supposed to.
Summary: Biggest issues: 1> There is nothing I know of small enough to fasten to the back of it to make it "lanyard" ready. Maybe it isn't supposed to be, but it looks like there was an intention of having the ability to do such a thing. 2> It fell off my desk (first time) and separated into 3 pieces. It still works, but is held together with scotch tape. I would like to have something a bit more sturdy. I've had a mug survive the same fall intact.
Don't buy this product if it will go in your pocket.

Summary: This product seemed to work perfectly well. However, I put this on my keychain, which went into my pocket. The problem is that the little white cap falls off all the time. It is too loosely fitted to the drive, making it fall off with little to no force. It was only a matter of time before the cap fell off without my noticing. Now, I have no cap, and the device is pretty worthless to me without its cap.
Summary: tested the drive by copying a 897Mb file back and forth. While read speed was very good - around 16Mb/sec, write speed was horrible - slightly over 2Mb/sec. In comparison, my old 1Gb Lexar drive shows 8.5Mb/sec write and 11Mb/sec read. Not to mention that there is a 15-20 sec delay between you hit 'copy' button and the actual copying dialog showing up. Did test it on my desktop and laptop.
Summary: Não sei exatamente se o produto tem boa procedência de fabricação, pois está apresentando defeitos (a ponta está mole, e não está firme na hora de colocar na entrada USB do computador). Já comprei outro do mesmo modelo e marca e não tive problemas. Acredito ser por causa de alguma procedencia (fabricantes diferentes).
Pros: Tem correspondido
Cons: Aparência rústica e a ponta não está muito firme, está movendo quando tento conectar na entrada USB do computador., Apresenta irregularidade, dificuldades para usar.
Summary: - Não posso falar nada a respeito, porque comprei de dois fornecedores e tomei calote nos dois, paguei e não recebi, pelo menos um me reebolsou, mas o outro sumiu! portanto não conheço o produto!!!
