2 out of 5 eggsSo Slow

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model DT101G2/16GBZ

Pros: Nice physical size, well built and good price.

Cons: Very, very slow. The speeds both read and write are in the USB 1.1 range rather than USB 2. This is the largest of my USB drives and also the slowest by far, making it almost useless for large amounts of data.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer our assistance. Please understand the DT101G2 is a standard USB 2.0 drive and does not offer performance transfer rates. Although, USB 1.1 speeds would be rather low as it's maximum bandwidth was 12Mbit/s or 125KB/s more realistically around 100KB/s which in it's day would not have been much of an issue. USB 2.0 has a realistic limitation of about 30MB/s which would be offered with performance USB drives. Such as the DTHX30 which offers USB 3.0 write speed up to 135MB/s and USB 2.0 speed of 30MB/s. 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. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model DT101G2/16GBZ

Pros: Really good USB to have at home. I fix people windows/reinstall, I put all my software inside the USB that will help me diagnose the Windows.

Like the way this USB never has a fully removable cap.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsXBOX 360 Now NTFS

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model DT101G2/16GBZ

Pros: Works great, it has worked w/o any flaws for over a full year now, how a full year? It was used on an XBOX 360 Slim and during that time never had an single issue, now I had to replace it with a 32GB because I ran out of space so I'm using it to back up files on a laptop, had to reformat to NTFS and still works and is fast enough for a 2.0.

Cons: No Cons.

Other Thoughts: Kingston products have never failed for me, that's why I keep buying them and of course, the less expensive the performance is on par with most other products in comparison but for the price this is the best choice, I think. Not to mention the reliability that Kingston products have.

3 out of 5 eggs16GB, but slower than a baby's crawl

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model DT101G2/16GBZ

Pros: They are decently priced USB 2.0 drives... and stored what I need them too while I had them (bought 2)

Cons: They are pretty darn slow... but I didn't buy them for speed.

Other Thoughts: Gave to some co-workers about a year ago after buying a single 32GB USB3.0 drive - they seem to be happy with them.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We're sorry for any issue caused by the DT101G2 flash drive. Please understand this is a basic drive, not considered a performance drive and would not offer high transfer rates. All of our USB 3.0 drives do offer high transfer speeds, such as the DTR30 or DTHX30. For any further assistance with Kingston products, 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 eggsFaster than expected

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model DT101G2/16GBZ

Pros: Compact, sturdy, safe and secure. I like the metal swivel to protect the end. Better than advertised, see other thoughts.

Cons: I wish that the swivel was a little tighter. Also the loop hole opening for a lanyard could be just a tad larger.

Other Thoughts: After testing multiple times over a 2 day period, up to 3 hours per test with HD_Speed and ChkFlsh, I was getting 4.0 to 7.8 MB/s write speeds and an AVERAGE of 17.4 MB/s read speeds.

5 out of 5 eggsWorked perfectly for me

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model DT101G2/16GBZ

Pros: It is amazing how inexpensive a 16GB flash drive is these days! Nice design. Functions exactly as stated on the package. See other thoughts.

Cons: None at this price point.

Other Thoughts: Write speeds are only rated at 5MB/s. If you expect more than that, you bought the wrong product and your mistake is not a con about the product. In my application, I actually achieved close to 10MB/s writes on large files, which is at least double what you should expect. If you are transferring a bunch of small files and folders, expect the write speed to be way slower... just like transferring small files and folders to any other media.
