Experience: 2 Days

Strengths: very nice desgin. Good price.

Weaknesses: This specific product has no driver cd, neck strap and usb cable.

Summary: (Edited December 23rd by intelite) I think Kingston usb memory is one of the best products.
It's strengths are design, and reliable brand name.
However, its surface is very weak and very easy to be scratched.
Also, this one has no neck strap and driver cd.
It supports USB 2.0. Reading and writing speed is good.
Reading 27.2 mega bytes take 10 seconds, and writing
27.2 mega bytes take 27 seconds.
Overall, its a nice product.

Strengths: Its fast and there is no setup at least for w2000 or xp.

Weaknesses: Dorky lanyard/key chain thing.

Summary: The cap thing is solid. I have a PNY 512 MB memory stick where the cap is so filmsy it can break if you're not careful.

The kingston is warranted for 5 years which is very good. It is very fast, faster than my older Lexar model. You just plug it and drag files to it. You use it just like a logical drive.

Like all flash drive, you're not supposed to just pull it out of the usb connector unless you stop the device first. Well, like all the other ones I've had I have just pulled it out w/o stopping it first. No harm at all, but I would not do this regularly.

Lastly, it is handsome package and it fits nicely in your pocket. Don't use the lanyard. I had a Lexar drive on my key chain which after awhile stopped working. I think whether it is bouncing around on your key chain, get tossed onto your desk, or bouncing around your neck, you risk damaging the drive.

Strengths: Cheap after rebate and 5-year warranty.

Weaknesses: Slow. It is USB 1.1 not 2.0

Summary: It is a good product and inexpensive after rebate. However, the labble of box and the product description in the sellers' website would lead buyers to misunderstand that it is a USB 2.0 drive.

Strengths: very durable and has a nice carry strap that comes with the drive to make sure the item is not lost.

Weaknesses: haven't found one yet

Summary: the product is exactly as advertised and a great value competing at least with everything I have seen. It has the added bonus of an included strap to make transportation and storage a lot easier. This will help to make sure the device is not lost or damaged.

Weaknesses: The USB neck is a wee short for one desk top.

Summary: Great value, on some usb ports, one particular Sony Desktops, the neck is a wee short, like that technical term. Not sure any would though fit due to Sony design. Other than that perfect size and I like the neck strap that comes with it!
