Customer Reviews of Kingston 8GB DataTraveler 108 2.0 USB Flash Drive - Red
Small and Efficient5/7/2013
Very small and portable. Quick and easy to use.
I put it on my keys and have it always around.
Great unit, works well!
The flash drive is excellent8/27/2012
The transaction is very fast and storage is stable!
Small and handy. I also feel the price is so reasonable. I have been using this for over a month now and had no problems so far. Also, the design is great with a nice looking finish. Carrying it in key ring is so easy due to its tiny appearance. Highly recommended.
This flash drive is very small. The design of the insert end make it not seating in the USB port firmly.
Have had trouble with some older Kingston flash drives dismounting (way, way back when drives were much smaller and more expensive) but impressed by this product. Stable, tiny and easy to carry around in your pocket, or string on a necklace if you feel so inclined. Been using it for months now. Highly recommended.
It has everything that I was looking for on a flash drive. Pros: 1. Protective cover that can never be lost (rotates around the whole drive). 2. Little loop so that it can be attached to a key chain (lost a bunch of drives already). I love this product.
You wont regret4/20/2012
I purchased this item through Buy.com. It's very very fast USB flash drive. You'll be amazed by it's speed. What I like most about it is the beatiful appearance and small form factor. People will think it's expensive, while it's only for less than 9 $. You wont regret

Small, very portable4/14/2012
I now carry this flash drive with me everywhere. It's got a loop to fit on my key chain, but I'm not sure how well it will hold up over time. The biggest con for me is this is not the easiest thing to open. While if you have nails its simple to open, but if you don't have any nails, it can be a little harder to open at first at least. I got this for free after using points, but for the price and the size, this is a pretty good deal.
A few observations I'd like to point out, this flash drive is VERY small...almost too small. It's a bit tough to open unless you have some fingernails to get in there to swing open the hinge mechanism. Also note two other points, this is a half plug device as shown in the picture, so be careful not to scratch the exposed terminal ends on the plug...and as a previous poster noted, this drive only has 7.44GB available.
Love it! Nice and compact, and it has a great spot to attach a keyring.
super small size1/5/2012
The upside lots of quick memory at hand at a good price. The downside..somewhat difficult to get open sometimes.
It's small size is convenient but it slips out of the USB connector on the computer very easily if it is tapped, even gently. It's also a little awkward with the way the protective "case" folds back when plugging it into narrow USB drives (such as in the back of a computer tower) or when over flash drives are plugged in next to it.
It is cute - fits on my key chain - good price = go for it...
Fast Ship, Low Price12/3/2011
Fast ship, low price, perfect as a small extra USB drive. Metal cover is nice. Little on slow side tough.
Don't buy this one11/8/2011
I thought kingston is some brand name and bought this one. It is so slow that you can download same data from internet much faster and I have a WD passport external hard drive 750 GB and its super fast. Don't buy this one, not worth at all.
8 Gigs storage in small size11/8/2011
This flash drive is very small. Not easy to open and close or to insert into USB port. Not a great flash drive to buy. Better to stay with normal size flash drives.
great value. shipped same day as order placed. 5 star performance on the pc. we bought 3. very pleased other than could not get it to work with the xbox 360. my only complaint. we bought 3 1 for each laptop and 1 for the xbox..
Great Price, Great memory
Works well. Average speed and great price. Didn't include a keyring, though
I bought this last week and as usual, the item was shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. A few observations I'd like to point out, this flash drive is VERY small...almost too small. It's a bit tough to open unless you have some fingernails to get in there to swing open the hinge mechanism. Also note two other points, this is a half plug device as shown in the picture, so be careful not to scratch the exposed terminal ends on the plug...and as a previous poster noted, this drive only has 7.44GB available. When put to the test, it was recognized by all three of my computers and works perfectly and fast.
Be aware that even though this is advertised as 8GB, it is notated as 1GB = 1,000,000,000 bytes or 10^9 bytes (decimal definition) while most all computer systems will interpret it as the binary definition: 1GB = 1,073,741,824 bytes or 2^30 bytes. This means that the actual usable capacity is actually approximately 8*0.93 = 7.44GB (i.e. about 7.44GB of actual space, not the full 8GB). This isn't a con, just saying don't be surprised when you get it installed and it's not the full 8GB.
All I can say is its the best deal.
