1 out of 5 eggsStrike Two

Pros: Sometimes it works. I have had this thing a long time now but it never did write data well. I'm a tech and know my stuff. So No doubt about it this model was a stinker.

Cons: 1st one i ordered DOA. SHipped it to New Egg, and They replaced it with another. I love New Egg RMA.
2nd Unit would not write files consistently and would fail. Never could get it to hold more than about 5 gb of data. Just gave up on the This particular drive must have had a batch of bad ones, and I got two. Did not want to pay shipping for a third bad one. Just would break my heart to do it again as I always trusted the Kingston Brand

Other Thoughts: Use it as a windows ready drive now, as its poor reliability makes it worthless for storing any data. I think it just now died as I am writing this review LOL. I have a 2gb kingston usb drive that works like a champ. Wish I had had better luck with the 16gb model.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works good - getting good signal reception over 200 yards away outside. Cover cap is hinged and attached to the unit so you will not loose it. Lanyard attachment is on the unit itself not on the cap.

Cons: The unit is large enough to block 1 or 2 of the USB ports, depending on where I plug it in, on the back of my desktop PC.

Other Thoughts: It blocks one of my USB ports on my PC. This cost it 2 stars.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Flash Drive

Pros: By far one of the best flash drives I have used to date. I had a 4GB Kingston before I lost it... Does everything I need it do, and copies to and from in a reasonable speed.

Cons: Plastic piece at the end of the drive has broken already... No string and clip attached with this one to keep on a keyring.

3 out of 5 eggsNot Happy

Pros: I have a 4g Kingston and love it so I thought I'd try the 16g because I needed more space.

Cons: Didn't save my new work. The 3rd time I plugged it in my computer didn't recognize it. I unplugged it and tried again and this time it was fine. However when I went to check some new files and folders I had created they were gone. This happened twice and today (11/28/09) was the 2nd time.

Other Thoughts: I was very disappointed with this Kingston.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW

Pros: I love how reviewers consider their tech knowledge "high", yet they don't know that drive manufacturers list capacity in multiples of 1000, but computers display them in multiples of 1024. They've been doing it for years.

Cons: Lack of understanding

Other Thoughts: Time to reassess your inflatted believe in your own knowledge.

5 out of 5 eggs16gb

Pros: I do not own this drive, however i do own the 32gb kingston dt200. This is written for the reviewer that was complaining about the drive being 14.9gb. There was nothing wrong with drive ALL 16gb DRIVES ARE 14.9gb flash chip manufactures use HDD standard of 1,000 bytes instead of software standard of 1,024 bytes. Also part of drive is used for the formatting of the drive.

Cons: They could use software standard, would be nice, but its a greedy world out there so we will just have to deal.....

Other Thoughts: Know what you are talking about before you post, don't write bad reviews based on your lack of knowledge on the subject.

4 out of 5 eggsKingston is good stuff

Pros: Amazing storage that can fit on your keyring.

Cons: Removable cap can get lost. Don't trust that little string lanyard either. Mine didn't break, but it came loose from my keyring. Luckily, it fell off while in my pocket. Somewhat slow transfer speed.

Other Thoughts: The guy that wrote the last review is correct. If you do the math based on 1024 bytes, then all flash drives will hold rated capacity. I have 4 of these things, in different sizes. The rule of thumb (or thumb drives, ha ha) is you will show 300 mb less on a 4 gig drive. Therefore, on a 16, you will show 300 X 4 or 1.2 gig less than the 16 gig rating. Not one of my drives ( from 3 different manufacturers) shows rated capacity. BTW, linux shows the same values, so its not only a windoze thing.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product

Pros: The product does exactly what it should do, has proven to be extremely sturdy and has never let me down.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The other two reviews came from people that, trust me, have no tech knowledge.
It is a known fact that producers consider
16GB = 16000000000B
Diffrence is windows does see 1KB as 1000B, but actually 1024B. Therefore
16000000000B/1024=15625000B (kilo)
15625000B/1024=15258.789 (mega)
15258.789/1024=14.901 (giga)

Guys, no matter how many hundreds times you swap your pen drive for a new one, 16gb in windows will always be 14.9gb.
