Bought another one (this time a 32GB), and within a few months, the same thing happened. This time I snapped a picture. I cannot believe this passed quality testing. Do they just glue these chips into the case? That's pretty lame and insecure. If you buy one of these, buy some kind of cap so you don't lose the ship inside (along with your data). The speed was good and the looks were great. The actual build quality - highly lame. Sigh. Never again - have changed to a metal USB drive with a security cap t prevent something like this from happening again.
The drive read/write speeds are a little on the slow side but reasonable. I timed some file transfers on my computer (Dell Optiplex 380):
* For read speeds, I averaged 16.1 MB/s (ranged from 10 MB/s to 18 MB/s).
* For write speeds, I averaged 6.8 MB/s (ranged from 4 MB/s to 11 MB/s).
In general, larger files took longer to transfer than smaller files (single 300 MB file took longer to move than one hundred 3 MB files). Other users with the same device have reported an average of 17-18 MB/s read speeds and 11-12 MB/s write speeds. These are considered to be AVERAGE speeds for usb flash drives. If speed is of the essence, then look for a high speed drive that can read/write 30 MB/s or faster. If you're mostly transferring documents, photos, and other small files, then these speeds should suffice.
Another small complaint. I do not feel a 'click' when the drive is inserted fully. So I just push until it won't go in anymore or when I see that the computer has recognized the drive. A minor annoyance in an otherwise great USB drive.
I highly recommend this drive. While the speed on this device is not top notch, its performance is reliable and it comes in a great little package.
I decided to leave this review when I randomly looked at some of the 1 star reviews. I feel like people lose the logic and simply look at quantity, they don't take into account the percentage of GOOD reviews. Currently as of 12/30/14, the reviews are about 90% positive and 7% negative, with the remainder being 3 star reviews. Keeping in mind that people are far more likely to comment when they have a negative experience, that means that more than 90/100 people that buy this device are happy or OK with it. There is nothing wrong with that statistic. While I understand that there will be defects in some devices, this does not mean that Kingston is unreliable or should be losing any credibility. There is a reason that a warranty exists, no manufacturing process is perfect. If you base your purchase decisions on items that have 100% customer satisfaction reviews, you will likely be purchasing nothing. While I'm sure that some of the 5 star reviewers could be challenged as well, I notice several 1 star reviews that simply say 'product broke', 'cheaply made', 'major design flaw'.. then don't follow up with any detail. This is a metal housing with no seam, the main thing that the reviewers are complaining about comes down adhesive holding the plastic memory stick inside. I realize that this is a very important failure, but an expected one. Metal is adhered to plastic, it will never be perfect.
I have never had the inside pull out as people have commented.. and these get used quite frequently as I work with automation equipment and software. I'm always working on my laptop and transferring files to/from machines. I have them on keychains, they are always banging against each other and counter tops as I toss them on my counter/table/toolbox. Every time I plug this device in, it is recognized and immediately available for use. My main drive has been in use for over 2 years and has likely been plugged in and removed over 1000 times, dropped several dozen, lots of abuse with adjacent keychain items. It has probably been used on 100 different computers. Maybe I just got the best ones of the bunch??
For the longevity I've gotten out of these devices, I'd say that they are/were well worth the money. Memory has become quite cheap. When I picked these up, they were $10 for 16 GB. In my opinion if they last for a year they were worth it. As for the people complaining about losing data.. with any form of backup, if you are relying on a single device.. your practice is flawed. For important data, you should always use redundant backups. This is generally true even with backup hard drives! You should never copy important files to these devices and delete the original. Large companies backup their data using multiple forms of redundancies, multiple networked drives and such because they know that a single device can and will fail. This is no different for individuals. At my company, if I stored important data on one of these devices and it failed, I lost important files.. they would look to me and I would take the blame simply because.. well, it would be my fault!
I don't produce a lot of video or slideshows, but when I do, I like to make them portable enough to easily share.
Memory sticks are currently, the cheapest and simplest way I know to send my content with friends and co-workers.
The biggest problem with this things, honestly, is keeping them organized and labeled.
Finally, a new age design that features a decent sized loop that you can use to attach it to a keyring and/or key tags with a table.
Functional, the 2.0 USB (standard speed) is fine for most work and paste enough to play video (Quicktime .m4p format) and any kind of music. The WRITE and READ Times for this drives is in a tech spec somewhere on-line, but to me, it simply means expect it to take about 3 times longer to write files to the stick than it does to READ them back off later. Thats pretty much normal for most devices anyway).
This is not a "3.0 USB" drive, which just means it isn't capable of the faster 3.0 speeds on the new and faster USB ports.
Styling is handsome and rugged metal (aluminum, I would guess - magnets don't stick to it).
My only comment is that I think the units were labeled completely backwards:
This might be harder to explain, but the gold standard for cables is to print the symbol on the top side of the USB plug.
In this case, the top side reads "DTS39 32 GB" (I guess DTS39 is a model number ??). Anyway, it's upside down and not helpful.
The bottom side has the "Kingston" logo, which, to me, belongs on the top side (reversed to read right side up).
See my photos for how they look on a laptop with two USB ports on the left side (fairly common today, but obviously, other devices may be built differently).
I first purchased these Kingston Data Travellers back in 2012-3, when they were first available, and was impressed by the metal case. Here we are 7 years later, and it is my favorite USB. A friend across the continent still has one, and has been wearing it on a necklace...for 7 years. The fact Kingston still makes these is a testament to their function and durability.
I read a couple of negative reviews before buying a batch of 12 (32GB, USB2.0), and while I suppose that there are always some lemons out there, all 12 worked fine for the week of the class. I noticed they do fit a bit tight the first couple of uses. The only difference between my 7 year old flash and these, is the older one has a slightly different hue and surface "roughness" to the metal. Really, this is a minor cosmetic difference, and not surprising or a problem.
In a perfect world, I'd like 32GB, USB3.0, all for the price of a frappacino (or less, of course). And in fact, Kingston can offer that in another version of the Traveller (the Kingston DataTraveler SE9 G2 USB 3.0 Flash Drive). I decided to go with this older version, the 32GB USB2.0, as it is smaller on a keychain (or necklace), but I have bought the USB 3.0 version too and really like them. It's hard to go wrong with either.
There aren't too many electronic products still offered for sale after 7 years. If you're wondering about buying one, I'd say give it a try. Now that I've found them again, I will be buying them for future gifts, and for myself.
Constantly! they are enticing as they are low price and dont take up more than 1 USB slot when inserted, but dont fall for it. And if they are failing at our types of use-case, they will fail your use-case as well.
