I love this USB Stick. 5 STARS !!!! I've owned several flash drives by Kingston (bought from They've all performed impeccably. This particular one has additional organizational S/W which might prove useful to less computer savvy customers. Personally, I don't have much use for it although the interface is kinda neat. consistently has the lowest prices on flash memory and it's the website I look to first for similar needs. The quality has been superbly reliable. No complaints so far.

Great product

by Frank on 11/11/2010

If you are looking a for capless drive with the coolest Art Deco design, great capacity, durable case, perfect dimensions, and works with Windows 7, Mac OS, this is for you. It is small yet wide enough not to be difficult to insert or remove. It has a very nice LED to indicate use. The swing shield is aluminium that has a small loop for lanyard attachment or key ring. Case is hard plastic with a solid feel. The only thing I would improve on is make the shield lock in place. The access times could be faster, writes about 5 MBps and reads around 17 MBps reads for files greater than 64 MB using HDtest software. While this is not great impressive, I have noticed that the actual file transfers are faster according to windows 7 and approach 10 MBps writes. All I can say it was a great buy for me. Read More
