5 out of 5 eggsYes, buy it

Pros: Great flash drive, holds lots and I like it a lot. My friend used it to transfer our entire spring break photo album (10gbs) and a few videos of me be goofy haha. It's a great drive and it looks really cool so that is a definite pro

Cons: i didn't get it sooner!

3 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: Works. Fairly solid. 16GB space. Inexpensive. Takes approximately 13-14 minutes to install Windows 7 to an HDD from this flash drive: 7 minutes until first reboot/installation finish; 7 more minutes for setting up registry entries and other options.

Cons: Fairly slow. I ran a couple of speed test on this drive. All tests were ran on my computer. Here is the results:
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
# KINGSTON 16GB DATATRAVELER (this drive) #
CrystalDiskMark - 5 passes, 500MB (Kingston 16gb Datatraveler)
- Seq: 18.50 Read, 8.516 Write
- 512k: 18.52 Read, 1.740 Write
- 4k: 5.350 Read, 0.018 Write

Roadkil Disk Speed 2.0 (Kingston 16gb Datatraveler)
- Access Time: 0.83ms
- Max read: 18.49MB/sec
- Cached Speed: 29.40MB/sec
- Overall score: 3716.6
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

3716.6 overall score in disk speed is just a bit over half of what some of my other drives achieve.

Other Thoughts: This flash drive has a large capacity which makes it great for an inexpensive option for storing a lot of data. However, the speed of the drive leaves a lot to be desired. If you are looking for speed, you might want to try a different product. If all you are looking for is an inexpensive, high-capacity drive, though, this drive will not disappoint.

4 out of 5 eggsBig storage. Small package

Pros: 16GB of storage that is smaller than the size most adult's thumbs.

Cons: The swing plate protector is a little loose, but not the end of the world.

Other Thoughts: This is the largest USB stick I've ever owned. It's not the fastest, but it is solid with it's read/write rates. I personally use a thumb drive case (available anywhere thumb drives are sold...like here), and that helps keep the drive more protected in my pocket. Remember that this is still a FAT32 format. Meaning that you can't put a 4GB DVD iso on it (or other large files). Research FAT32 filesize limits for specifics.

4 out of 5 eggsYep, it's a thumbdrive!

Pros: Works as it should.

Cons: didn't come with a keychain or strap to thread though available slot so there's no way to attach it to anything. I ended up using a twist tie because I don't have any string fine enough. Also the swing around protective chrome cover has no positive stop to hold it in place. Minor quibbles but what else can you say about a thumb drive? It's about convenience I guess.

3 out of 5 eggsNice, but Slow

Pros: Nice design, rugged, metal swing-cap works well and stays out of the way in tight situations.

Cons: Yeah, I'm afraid it's slow. Reasonable reading speeds, but writing settles in at about 15MB/sec, which means big files take a long time. Get ready to re-format as well, since it comes in FAT format, which is a bit mind-boggling, considering the whole reason people get a flash drive this large is to put big files on it.

Other Thoughts: I love the design (had a 2GB one of the same style) and am happy overall, but I'd trade it all for faster write speeds.
