Overall it is a little nice gadget. Initially I was quite happy with it. It can hold lots of data. I am a university professor and travel a lot for lecturing, so this can accommodate a lot to power-point presentations and I could carry with me the manuscripts I have been working on. But one day while at the airport, as I pulled the key chain from my pocket with the Data Traveller attached to it, the TSA officer pointed out that something fell to the floor. When I looked down I discovered that the actual memory card had come loose off the metal casing and fell to the ground. Had the officer not noticed I would have lost all my lectures and manuscripts I was carrying. So, no more for me. Great carrying capacity, but not worth the risk. I know some readers may say, 'well you should back up your memory stick' which I had done, the problem is that the original was at home, not with me, that's what I use the stick for- worse, some of the manuscript it contained were unpublished. Imagine if someone else found it!

I needed a USB drive on my keychain. I bought 6 different ones (some purchased at Amazon and some at Staples). This one is my favorite. The metal casing feels strong yet light. And it fits easily on any keychain. It's about 80% the size of a standard house key (see my photo that I added). Also, it's very good looking. Looks great on the keychain; looks great when inserted into any computer.

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've purchased two of these - a 16GB and a 32GB version. Both looked great and performed great. One the first one - after about three months - I went to insert it to find the actual memory chip had fallen out of the metal casing. I had important data on there and it was gone forever (and some of it was sensitive). I changed things on my PC to ensure security and restored my data that I had from a backup onto another USB drive.

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.

I have been using these USB drives for over 2 years now. I own 2 silver 16 GB, 1 silver 8 GB, 2 gold 16 GB. Some are used daily/weekly, others are more long term backups. Not one has failed me. These attracted me because they are in a seamless metal housing and look like they can take some abuse.

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 love it!
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).

The first SE9 (64GB USB 2.0) drive lasted about six months before failing. (The guts didn’t fall out. Instead, the following screen message appeared “The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer.”) I wasn’t able to erase or initialize it.

Because I thought the the failure was caused by my disconnecting the drive from the computer without ejecting it (something I’ve done many times) I ordered a second. The first drive was extremely slow so I was happy to find the newer SE9 much faster. It also died much faster — in two days (in the middle of backing up files). Same screen message. Same inability to initialize or erase.

Over the years I’ve used an assortment of Kingston USB drives without a hitch (and I’m back to using a two year old Kingston (USB 2.02 DT101 G2) which is bent (from carrying in a back pocket) and has survived the washer machine twice. I especially liked the SE9 because keeping it on a key chain kept me from forgetting to remove it from both my home and office laptops (since I needed the keys to start my car).

What’s especially annoying is that I’m not about to return either defective drive. The first drive contains months of financial information and the second worked long enough to back up key files on both computers before failing. Which makes the five year warranty (or even Amazon’s return policy) essentially worthless.

Fortunately, the drives are relatively inexpensive. What stinks is that the purpose of using a back-up drive is for the peace of mind. From now on I’ll be alternating between two different but more reliable drives.

I travel a great deal for my job. There are some important files in my main computer at work with information that changes frequently. I need access to that data all time so I have been moving the files with updated information to a flash drive, and from there I was downloading the information into my laptop that always goes with me when I’m on the road. If I packed in a hurry, with too many charging wires and paperwork also in my backpack, my flash drive would often sink to the bottom and get lost.

I bought the Kingston Digital DataTraveler SE9 USB Flash drive because the device has a round opening which allows me to attach the flash drive to my keyring. Now I am actually carrying the information I need with me all the time, and this is very handy when I need to work in my laptop from home. Although it appears to be quite small, the flash drive holds 16 GB of information, which is more than enough to meet my needs.

The drive is “capless”, so you can quickly insert it right into the computer without having to remove a cover first. At first this worried me, but the metal casing is strong and I have had no issues with the device, even bumped around riding inside my purse or hanging down from the ignition when I’m driving.

There was a delivery issue with the first Kingston Digital DataTraveler SE9 USB Flash drive I ordered. Amazon let me know right away that they had lost the shipment, and took ownership of the problem. They offered me the choice of reordering or accepting a refund with their apology. I chose to reorder, and they took the delivery method up a notch, so the replacement got to me very quickly. If I ever need more GB space, I plan to get another one of these.
