Ease of Use

I have a 2GB and 4GB Data Traveler 101, that have Secure Traveler. I thought I was upgrading with this 8GB, but found out this drive does not have any security software to protect the data and does not support Secure Traveler. Tech support said they had to ditch the software because of the size.

This is a great product. Protects everything on your thumb drive. The data portion isn't even presented until you log on successfully to the device. Must have for IT workers or anyone transferring personal or sensitive information. I only gave it a 4 for performance because the write speed is a bit slow. I also have the 256 MB Enterprise version DTSP, and the write speed on that is much faster. Granted, I don't have their 8 GB DTSP, which is supposedly half the write speed of the other models. Could be the same with the DT101 line as well, but Kingston don't have any info posted on the transfer speed of the DT101. But all in all, it's a great device. No cap to lose. Great. Hook a keyring to it, take it wherever you go.

Absolutely GREAT!!

I use this thing EVERY day and it hasn't failed me. The metal protector thing is great for keeping the USB connector safe in my pocket, and since it's attached, you won't lose it!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

It gets the job done every time. It has a fast transfer rate and is reliable. Definitely one of the better flash drives I have.
