5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G3 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTLPG3/16GB

Pros: Metal case, USB 3.0, and Reliable encryption software

Cons: Not exactly a con, considering this was the reason I bought it. Has to install the encryption software on every new computer,

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to anyone looking for a well built, and reliable USB 3.0 flash drive.

2 out of 5 eggsBeware- Only for Win7 and up, apperently

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G3 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTLPG3/16GB

Pros: Works on Win7, sorta

Cons: Very slow. Can't be used as a regular flash drive. Doesn't work on Linux system. Doesn't work as bootable drive, at least on the machines I tested. Doesn't seem to be stable, and very, very slow on XP systems tested.

A real disappointment and waste of time for me. Make sure you research where you want to use this drive before purchase.

Other Thoughts: I didn't realize until after I purchased that it doesn't work on Linux systems. Too bad there isn't a way to use it as a real thumb drive, and too bad the read speed is so slow. I don't know where they got the numbers listed on the specs - no system I tried it on went anywhere near those listed USB 3.0 speeds. Tested this on a known working USB 3.0 port, where ADATA USB drives work much, much faster.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer our assistance. Please understand the DT Locker Plus G3 is a hardware encrypted drive which requires a user to enter their password prior to allowing access to the data stored on the drive. This is the secure functionality of the drive which cannot be changed otherwise it would not be secure. For this reason the drive would not work properly as a boot device or a standard flash drive. The security of the drive is supported on Windows Vista SP2 and above as well as Mac OS 10.6-10.9, typically the drive should work on the Windows XP SP3 without complication. We are here to help and can troubleshoot with you to determine the speed issue with the drive and if the drive is not performing properly it can be replaced under warranty. 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. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

5 out of 5 eggsBest of the best Flash Dive

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G3 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTLPG3/16GB

Pros: Excellent quality made product from Kingston. The best flash drive I have ever purchased and I have no complaints about any of it's functionality. The password firmware is well designed and runs without problems. Until I get my new computer with USB 3.0, it's running circles around my USB 2.0 flash drives.

Cons: None at this time

Other Thoughts: You need to have one to appreciate it and Newegg is selling one at a competitive price. Great service from Newegg, I like being able to buy a single item with a low shipping cost that arrives quickly.
