Performance

The USB does have a flashing LED when it is in use. It is a yellowish/green and shines through the kingston face logo. It comes with a tiny key ring with a string to attach to the USB. This is fairly easy to put on a key chain. Though it will get dinged up and the cap-less cover will often bounce around if you put it in your pocket. PROS: - Capacity is 7.45 GB, close to 8 GB. I list this as a pro as sometimes a usb is advertised as 8 GB and it is really in the 6-7 range. - No software, back-up, utility. Just a blank drive to drag and drop files. - Rubber has good grip CONS: -The "chrome" is just a piece of plastic with a metallic like finish. -It is a bit big. I used to have a kingston USB that swiveled that was more compact and sturdy. I'm satisfied. I prefer the DataTraveler 101 (they are on G2 now).

-A customer quote

Build is plastic but ok, no problem using. Drive was fairly slow compared to my sandisc, at least in the write dept. Drive became corrupted when it reached 5.6 gigs of data about 5 months later. would not access files or format. Not good compared to the sandisc that worked for years until I lost it.
