2 out of 5 eggsIt works... with an exception...

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

Pros: Stores files. Portable. Moves data.

Cons: Doesn't move files at USB 3.0 speeds..
But that was least of my worries with this product.
I purchased this about 2 weeks ago in anticipation of a new computer build for a relative. And I needed something to put a Windows 7 .ISO file on for installation.
Well here I am 5am 7 hours after finishing my build. Now with half of that computer ripped apart troubleshooting all of the components I had previously assembled looking why A brand new SSD and then Brand new Hard Drive "Wouldn't format" properly/stopped mid-way through my installation of windows. (I know it was formatted properly, As I used DiskPart in command prompt to clean, create primary part, format, assign, and mark the drive as active) Tried formatting in a working computer, the SSD worked great in my system.. So? I look online, and start questioning the Kingston DataTraveler G4 drive myself.. and there it is.. cannot be used to install windows 7.
And when I come here to make mention of it? someone else had the same problem...

Other Thoughts: Was looking for a half-decent economical thumb drive to use for installing Windows with. Seen this for around $5.
I've never purchased a Kingston product before. But I know they've been around awhile so I figure I can trust in this.
Testing it out prior to attempting to use it for my intended purpose, I seen it performed on par with a simple USB 2.0 drive. left that slide.. But now that I wasted 7+ hours time?
Due to it's inability to install an operating system?
I think I will be avoiding this company from now on..

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work to Install Windows 7

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

Pros: Good Price

Cons: Strange problems trying to use these to install Windows 7 .
Get the following error "Setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing system partition" when installing Win 7 from this USB drive. Tried a different brand usb drive and Windows installed without error.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Mike,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the DTIG4 flash drive. The intended use of the DTIG4 is as a standard USB drive for portal storage, it is not meant to be used as a bootable device or operating system disk. Our DataTraveler WorkSpace (DTWS) is designed to work as a bootable Windows OS disk and is Windows-To-Go certified. For any further questions or concerns, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

3 out of 5 eggsIs average

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

Pros: Low cost

Cons: Big & slow

Other Thoughts: This drive is larger than a typical usb drive. Has a big boxy case on it and wont fit side by side with other drives. Its also no faster than a cheap usb 2 drive. It has a usb 3 interface but it's not needed.

3 out of 5 eggsThumb drive

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

Pros: Good for small amount of data from unt to unit transfers

Cons: From reading reviews, I knew it would not be real fast
It does what I expect of it

Other Thoughts: If you are interested in fast transfer rates, spend the extra twenty dollars and get more capacity also. 8GB thumb drives are not as fast as higher capacity. Turbo 3.0 on higher end flash drives is real fast.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh

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

Pros: Its a working flash drive.

Cons: Not 3.0 speeds, I have a lot of USB 3 drives that just smoke this thing; it does work in 3.0 slots, just doesn't move files at that faster speed.

Other Thoughts: paid 8 bucks for a 8 gig flash drive, overpaid IMHO

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the confusion about the DTIG3 flash drive. This drive is an entry-level USB 3.0 drive and does not offer performance USB 3.0 speeds. If you are looking for a performance USB 3.0 drive, please consider out DTHX30 which offer 135MB/s write in USB 3.0 ports. For any further assistance, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Price & Good Performance

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

Pros: * Inexpensive
* Looks nice
* USB Cap fits tightly
* USB 3.0
* A litle faster than expected

Cons: Non that I can muster

Other Thoughts: Bought this with a reward card of $10 roughly used up $9.5.

Got it because I wanted to have a secondary USB Flashdrive, in case my Patriot XT finally decides to kick the curb. Considering the price, I ran a few bench marks and also copied some large files, and I am quite surprised that it performs nearly as well as my Patriot XT which is a 'performance' flash drive. It still doesn't beat it in terms of copying data to the drive, but the Kingston G4 does benefit from faster read speeds and decent enough speed. For the price to performance I think it's a good purchase for those that need no more than 8 Gigs on a USB stick. It wont blow your mind but it will work sufficiently well for average tasks, and will see how it holds up against my other flash drive over time.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good

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

Pros: I've done a bunch of stuff with this flash drive.
I've used the flash drive as a live CD/DVD for imaging PC's.
I've put Win7 and Win8 on this USB to image PC's and it works wonders.

Works great on USB 2.0 and even better on USB 3.0

Cons: The lid that covers the USB port isn't tight anymore after a while

4 out of 5 eggsSlick

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

Pros: Usual Kingston Durability. Decent Read/Write 45MBs/8MBs (for the price point)

Cons: Slick casing makes it hard to get a grip on. One egg docked for that. Cap needs squeezed on sides to remove. Hard to do when I only have one hand.

Other Thoughts: It's ugly. I would not have bought except for very low price with promo code. I think it's going to be a gift. I'll get another Kingston G3, which I love.
