1 out of 5 eggsMy 3rd one just had the guts fall out

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/8GBZ

Pros: size, metal housing, fits on key ring.

Cons: The guts of the 3 I bought fell out. They lasted under 1 year.

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these drives and just threw out the last one. the guts of all 3 fell out and made it unusable. I have thrown all of them out. I have had other Kingston drives and had no trouble like this.

5 out of 5 eggsKingston 8GB usb 2 DataTraveler

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/8GBZ

Pros: Industrial design one of the best I've seen.
Bought these at a bargain.
Small form factor
built in "handle"

Cons: usb 2 starting to show its age, but they were purchased at a bargain to make up for it. 5 eggs.

Other Thoughts: Bought two to archive old, stable versions of OS X; Lion and Snow Leopard.
They are very small and well designed and also have a keyring of sorts for those desiring that feature.

5 out of 5 eggsKingston Data Traveler

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/8GBZ

Pros: Does it's job and relatively fast for a USB 2.0 drive.

Cons: Wasn't free- but almost...

Other Thoughts: All thumb drives should be made like this one. Brick solid and very small. Isn't a hog for space of the USB ports.

5 out of 5 eggsSooo fast ......

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/8GBZ

Pros: Very small and sleek. Very sturdy. Unnoticeable on my keychain.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I just ordered a 16 gig one of these just because the price is so good and the eight gig that I'm writing about it so fast. I've been backing up to a sd card in my Dell built in computer slot for all of my needs and it saves it a reasonable speed, but when I plugged this new thumb drive to my computer's usb slot and saved a few large files it only took a few seconds and was amazed. I didn't know technology advanced at this point. And all for just a few dollars!!

5 out of 5 eggsHandy to have

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/8GBZ

Pros: Tough metal casing, no cover to lose.

Cons: Can be a bit of a tight fit on some USB sockets, but that can be a boon at times.

Other Thoughts: Got this item during a sale, almost a 2for1 deal, can't be beat at that price. I have had the 16GB brother for over a year and it has given faultless performance. These are the only flash drives I trust on a key ring all the others I have put on my key ring have ended up with chips and cracks, these things are very robust.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked well Initially

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/8GBZ

Pros: Is small and fits on my keychain. It was quickly available for quick data reads or writes.

Cons: Stopped working after 4 months. Plugged it into my computer and didn't even mount. Tried on multiple machines and it didn't show up on any of them. The build suggests a rugged design but it didn't deliver.
