3 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: Inexpensive, 8GB, feels solid

Cons: Painfully slow transfer. 4.7 MB/second slow (writing, and yes you read that correctly). It's USB 3.0 compatible but that doesn't mean that it writes at 3.0 speeds. "Kingston’s DataTraveler® Generation 4 (DTIG4) features USB 3.0 for quick and easy transfers..." hahaha

5 out of 5 eggswindows 8 install

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: Installed windows 8 no problem.

Cons: runs hot

Other Thoughts: I read in the reviews that this flash drive will not install win. 7, but i'm glad I didn't read that be for I bought it because it installed win. 8 with no problems in about 20-30 mins. I may have gotten lucky, but luck usually doesn't play into it when it comes to electronics like this. So it worked perfect for what I bought it for.

5 out of 5 eggsInstalling os

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: Works great for data storage.

Cons: Haven't found any yet.

Other Thoughts: I read that it cannot be used for installing windows 7, I'm glad I didn't read that before I bought it. I used it for installing windows 8 on a new build and it worked perfectly. I don't know if I got lucky but I doubt it because electronics don't usually have luck factor into it. I installed windows 8 from it in about 20-30 mins.

4 out of 5 eggsNice price but runs HOT on USB3

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: Inexpensive
Good storage size for many uses
Form Factor is average

Cons: Drive gets hot (very HOT) when used on USB 3.0 port

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these to use as bootable devices (recovery). They've proven fine for that, more capacity than needed. Speeds are nothing to brag about (29 Read/10 Write) - no advantage to using on USB 3.0 port. For some reason this drive runs cool on a USB 2 port, but gets really hot on 3.0 ports. Because of the modest speeds, I'm going to use them on my 2.0 ports - those high temps concern me.

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: It is working good so far. Product is exactly as advertised.

Cons: None so far. No choice on color but I can deal with yellow.

Other Thoughts: The actual formatted capacity of the 8GB is something like 7.2 GB.

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: Fast & cheap

Cons: I use this drive to load software on multiple computers. The problem is that it’s too fat to fit in some ports and I have to unplug other things to make it fit.

5 out of 5 eggsusb 3 flash drives

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: made for storing data

Cons: won't work for a drive to load windows 7

Other Thoughts: the windows 7 operating system neither has or understands anything that is usb 3. The technology was not built into windows 7. so quit whining

2 out of 5 eggsDo not buy for Windows 7 USB installer!

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: Cheap, shape and key ring nice for the job I wanted it to do.

Cons: Cannot use this drive as a Windows 7 installer.
Low read/write speeds for USB 3.

Other Thoughts: I should have read the reviews closer before buying - Michael L. is correct in that nothing makes these things work as a Windows 7 USB installer. That was the whole purpose I bought these. Just because the item is not intended for that purpose doesn't mean it shouldn't work like every other one on the market.

5 out of 5 eggsKingston DataTraveler Gen 4

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: Just opened the package today and haven't used them. Look great; should work just fine.

Cons: Haven't noticed anything obvious.

Other Thoughts: I totally misread the description. I thought I was getting 4 8GB drives. Instead they're Generation 4 drives, 8GB each. Could have gotten 8GB drives cheaper at Office Depot since I was simply looking for some cheap drives to use when giving data to friends! My dumb!!!
