Customer Reviews:

  • good value, but needs drive busy light
    Good capacity for the price, although it would be nice to have a light that flashes when the drive is accessed, like on most USB flash drives....more info
  • Write protection all of a sudden - no switch!
    I purchased this 8GB drive and now a month later am getting a dialog that the disk is write protected when trying to save or delete files. I never turned any write protection on and this model has no write protection switch on it. This is a huge issue with Kingston as you can find posts all over the net by Googling as well as a KB article on their website, KDT-092405-1. No resolution from Kingston, not even software to access the processer on the drive to disable write protection. their only resolution is that the drive is defective, thats it....more info
  • desperately needed
    Wow-what a great idea. Somehow entering the computer age means so much more stuff to keep track of, more photos taken, more great internet stuff to save to pass along. I needed a device that was larger than my failing mental capacity to keep track of it all....more info
  • exactly as it should be
    this flash drive is exactly as it is described. My only complaint, and this goes for all storage media, is that it is not actually 8gb, more like 7.5......more info

  • Defective
    This product arrived promptly but turned out to be defective. Files were successfully transferred onto the flash drive, but after ejecting the flash drive and reopening it, some of the files were gone or unreadable. I emailed Kingston support and was told the flash drive was defective. ...more info
  • Solid and Reliable 8gb USB Drive - Recommended
    The "DataTraveler 8 GB USB Flash Drive" gives you a lot of storage for your money. I have carried this little drive with me almost daily for over a year and couldn't be happier with its performance and the convenience of having a fairly large flash drive on hand when needed.

    I have not noticed any performance issues when transferring files (mostly videos, MS Office Docs, and Photos) either to or from this drive and have never experienced any data loss.

    The drive also has two connection points for attaching a lanyard, a small one underneath and the larger one visible in the product picture. While I don't use them, it would be handy for connecting to a security badge, but I'm not sure that the plastic would be strong enough to take being attached to a key ring for very long.

    The USB connector protective cap can be attached to the back of the drive for safe keeping while the drive is in use.

    This USB drive has proven itself a real value for the price, highly recommended!

  • Works Fine
    This unit performs well, loading accurately and quickly without a lot of undesired "bonuses" like "game" software.

    The cap keeps dust out of the docking orifice and can be snapped onto the opposite end, for safe-keeping, while the device is loaded. I'm glad Kingston has retained this design feature while playing with color schemes.

    If you do not want to move the cap to the back end, you can use the loop to connect to a key chain or a clip. Smart design assures the longevity of the unit in your possession. ...more info
  • Good external memory!

    Is a good memory module, if you plan to save files in windows or mac, no problem there, but if you are like me, more adventurer and want too use it for booting or diferent OS, or just stand alone servicing, well the story is sad, because no matter what you do, this 8gb unit will not boot!!

    Is not a mistery, kingston pleople does not want to you to do that!!!, so that is the reason, I like products that give you the freedom to do what you need, when you need it, sadly this is not one of those products.

    Felipe A.Rosario.

    PS: The price perfomance ratio is just right....more info
  • Flash drive
    Could not be more happy. High quality flash drive, great price, small, I ordered a second one....more info
  • Kingston Data Traveler
    I had previously had a 246 Meg Data Traveler and felt this was the brand I wanted, and I was right. This new one, an 8 Gig Data Traveler, I use it on my work laptop to backup major files I use and it works great....more info
  • Great product
    I have been giving these out as gifts. The price is right and it has a ton of storage space. It has been fast and reliable out of the box as it should be. I think the only possible downside would be the tiny end cap. It is pretty easy to lose. Other than that, it is a great product and I would recommend it to anyone looking to buy an 8gb usb drive. ...more info
  • great for me
    I'm not too smart with the workings of computers, so when I get something that will help me and is easy to use, I'm delighted. Two months ago I didn't know what a flash drive is. I do now because of my computer classes. The price was great for me. I had checked the prices out at the stores, but Amazon is usually the best in pricing. I probably have more GB than I need but that's ok....more info
  • Weak Construction
    Weak construction. I carried the drive on a keychain for two weeks and the connector slot broke. Luckily I didn't lose the drive with a lot of sensitive data.

    Make the cap and slot sturdier and I'd give it 2 more stars....more info

  • Large & Inexpensive
    What can I say? It's a thumb-drive that has a bunch of room, and it was inexpensive; And, the cap clips onto the other end, so that you don't loose it.

    I don't know what people expect? It's a thumb-drive, and it works. End of story....more info
  • As expected
    What can I say about a Kingston flash drive? It's small, fast, and usable....more info

  • excellent for price
    I ordered two of these and they are great for the price, plenty of storage and nice colors. The only thing is they won't slip into my keychain. ...more info

  • Great value for the price!
    Awesome! This is my second Kingston flash drive, and I love them both. They are durable and work well with my Mac iBook....more info
  • Nice Product--Nice Price
    I have had/used this item for about a month now and my experience with it is nothing but positive. It works like a charm and appears to be well designed and constructed. In terms of gb/$ it compares very well with other products on the market. I am glad I made this purchase....more info
  • 8GB of storage for cheap
    This pretty much does what it needs. The write speeds aren't fast, but aren't terribly slow either. I get about 6.5-8.5 MBps write and 20MBps read. I get this on both my laptop and PC, with both this 8GB model and the 4GB model as well. My USB can write @ 60MBps = 480 mbps to an external HDD, which is USB spec so I know it's not my USB. I can't use Ready Boost as it's not compatible with what I am using it for.

    All in all, it's does what it needs, it's built sturdy and the cap seems to stay on pretty good. ...more info

  • Awesome deal for so much space with the Kingston DataTraveler 8 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive DTI/8GB
    I bought this USB Flash drive because it was the best price I have found anywhere for 8 GB and I needed someplace to keep all the files that I do not access regularly. I plugged it in to my computer and within 5 minutes I had transferred all those files onto it, about 1 GB worth. They vary from photos to music to documents and emails. It took no more than a blip for each one to transfer, even the larger ones. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a way to store their files, or at 8 GB, to back up your entire system. These things sell for $50 and up in retail stores so this is a tremendous deal. ...more info
  • 4GB good price.
    I bought and use it. Kingston makes good products anyway. I bought this with a higher price item that I was buying for someone else so shipping was not a factor, because it was free. ...more info
  • Plastic breaks easily
    This is a good value drive for 4 GB, I have no complaints with the speed and it doesn't have stupid auto-install software on it, it's Just A Drive like it should be. The cap comes off in my pocket sometimes but not always.

    But the keyring hole at the other end broke after about a month of gentle use, just putting it in and taking out of pocket with my keys. Today I trimmed off the pointy broken plastic bits and found a tiny, thin keyring to put through the very small lanyard loop. Now I just hope that part doesn't break too. if it does I will have to find a sturdier drive with metal housing....more info

  • Works great
    I got this just before I made a trip back home and I was able to get all the pictures my sister had scanned in on it. It is great for taking files to and from work also....more info
  • Flash Card
