I tested it at once I got it. And it turns out to be much faster than "10M/s read; 5M/s write" as listed in the product detail. Actually it's around 18M/s read and 10M/s write! I don't know if it's gonna slow down after being used for a while, but so far the speed is satisfying. One thing you should pay attention however is the heat. It heats up significantly while working. So it's not a good idea to keep it plugged in for a long time. But I bet it won't burn if you do so.
Good reliable flash drive. I have several of these, and they are excellent performers. I have never been disappointed in Kingston products.
great product very pleased with it have been using kingston drives for years simply the best
A good buy6/18/2012
Exactly as described and pictured. A good product
Nice USB Stick6/11/2012
I love this USB Stick. 5 STARS !!!! I've owned several flash drives by Kingston (bought from buy.com). 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. Buy.com 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.
I was very pleased with the quality for the price. The drive is great for storing items like photos and data. Item was promptly shipped and I have had no problems with the drive.
I am happy with these drives. I bought 2 of them one for pictures and one for data. I like the way you can flip them to protect the usb part of the drive.
Delivered quickly. Pro: Functions as expected. Con: The cover can open while in your pocket. I'll stick with the ones that retract into the stick body.

This review is easy to write. This item was delivered quickly and worked exactly as advertised. I have had no problems with any item I have ordered from Buy.com, and will undoubtedly order more in the future.
Good product, well designed, inexpensive12/13/2010
Shipped quickly, works well, inexpensive, compact, design means you can't lose the cap, bright color makes it hard to lose the device.
It is very convenient and handy -- I have it on my key chain. Now I will always have a way to save something or take something with me easily.
Good deal on a name brand storage stick12/12/2010
The price was right and performance is good. Swing cover is a bonus. Quick delivery and free shipping is an incentive.
Excellent for price11/29/2010
Comes with some built in software to categorize the files saved; but I removed this as all I want is a general storage media. Works great for that and at a very reasonable price. Not having the cap or a slide to break is also a benefit.
There are drives with better transfer rates, but not at this low price. Great price and fast delivery. Great design for not losing the cap, I always lose them.
Works as advertised11/16/2010
Not much to say about a thumb drive except that it's well built and works like it's supposed to. Price was right from Buy.com and delivery was fast.
Best value and performance11/15/2010
Great price and service. Fast shipping!!!! Buy.com highly recommended for value, service! Perfect for storing my files to share with laptop and other pc's.
The Kingston is fast and its shape provides a detente for your fingers which makes inserting and removing very easy. There is no cap to lose, and the light is not too bright, unlike that found on the Sandisk cruzer flash drives. A good value!
A new and different Flash Drive.11/15/2010
I found this to be quite interesting because it came with software that was on the Flash Drive. The software has an interface with a managing setup for your music,photos and documents files, etc. Not bad for the price plus it is the flip cover type.
Will recommend for my Friends11/13/2010
Fast shipping, nice look and feel, easy to use..
The product was great and fast shipping. I will tell others about this site.
It's cheap, it's easy AND it works!
