2 out of 5 eggsGood and Bad

Pros: Works as stated. Easy to set up and get running.

Cons: I have an older 5 year old Kingston Data Traveler Elite and am able to leave the devise on my computer to unlock for and to lock for save keeping of documents. This unit will not allow you to do that. You must lock the unit and remove and reinsert to display and use (to lock and unlock)

Sad that it will not work in the same manner. I will have to find another brand that will allow me to work the drive in the same way as I do not need to unplug the USB and replug the USB each time after "locking" the unit.

Other Thoughts: Wish the would supply a neck strap as they have done in the past, but I am sure it a cost cutting decision.

I did have to assign a drive letter other that the default to get the unit to work. See the documentation with the unit to correct.

5 out of 5 eggsGood little drive

Pros: Strong, included software works as it should, decent read/write speeds.

Cons: This was a gift, the receiver of the gift has not reported any problems.

Other Thoughts: At one point this drive was lost. I found it in my dad's driveway four days later (after it had rained and covered the thing in mud), after a good cleaning it powered up and we were able to retrieve data.

4 out of 5 eggsSecurity with Kingston

Pros: If this device is lost, the person who finds it won't be able to access your information unless they know your password. They'll have to erase everything on the DataTraveler before they can access the memory or use it themselves.

With the swivel design, I haven't had to worry about losing a cap, like my daughter did a year ago.

I also liked their instructional video on their website.

Cons: Haven't really run into one yet. Once I get a laptop, I'll be able to see how well the information transfers over.

Other Thoughts: The 2nd time I used the DataTraveler, I realized how well the security works. I forgot that I had already set it up and tried to do it again. A window immediately opened up asking me to input my security information and if I didn't, did I want to erase the information and start over. Clearly it works!

I'm a BzzAgent and was sent this device as a review.

5 out of 5 eggsKingston DataTraveler Locker+

Pros: Now that I've been using the Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ for some time now, I can honestly say I'm still impresed. Setup was easy. I am running Windows Vista (64bit) and haven't had any issues. I also use this drive at my job. I work for county government, and lets be honest, doing employee rosters etc. need to be kept private. This definatly does the job. I love the swivel cap that stays attached. I tend to lose things like caps and other small items of the sort, so it's really nice to know it's not going anywhere! I will be buying another to store some family photos and genealogical files on!

Cons: Have yet to find one.

5 out of 5 eggsEfficiency

Pros: Amazing piece of technology considering the product is lightweight. Flash memory drive is easily accessed due to a U shaped cover which only requires a push through (no worries about losing a top). Kingston DataTraveler Locker is very durable physically and is quite strong via data protection; is specifically used for personal protection (i.e., concerning vehicle or bank info).This drive includes a password encryption which protects against any smarmy people through a technique in which consistent false access to info changes the arrangement of information on the drive. That is a huge plus considering how easy it is to lose a USB drive. Another plus is the ease onto which I can insert the USB into my computer or any computer and not worry if the information can be retrieved by a pre-downloaded application. The company even places a five year warranty on the USB so you can stay logically focused on personal protection.

Cons: The swivel cover works with ease but depending on the degree of movement the memory stick may (but rare when I used) partially pop out the side of the cover.

Other Thoughts: These statements are submitted by a BzzAgent who received product in order to review.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive for a Great Price

Pros: The encryption setup is extremely easy. Upon plugging the drive in a wizard appears that asks for some basic information such as your name and company and an area to enter additional contact information. This is nice in the event that the drive was lost. The next step is setting your password. The drive enforces a secure password policy and will not allow you to use an insecure password. Once this is setup, you have access to the storage portion of the drive. A separate drive will be mapped for the data storage. When you mount the drive from this point forward, you will be prompted for the password that you set. After 7 bad passwords you get a warning that you have 3 remaining attempts. After 10 bad passwords attempts you are prompted for a new password. After setting the new password, the data is formatted from the drive. After setting the new password, the data is formatted from the drive. This is another feature that goes beyond just password protecting your data.

Cons: With good security there are always tradeoffs. The chance of losing your data because you forgot your password is a very real possibility. This is easily offset by keeping your password recorded in a secure location or database. The other tradeoff in this instance is speed. I ran a read and write test on the Kingston
DataTraveler Locker+ against a standard flash drive that had no encryption. Those results are as follows:

Transfer Rates for the Kingston DataTraveler Locker+

Filesize 3.55 GB

Write 9.8 MB/s
Read 22 MB/s

Transfer Rates for the comparison non-encrypted flash drive:

Write 12 MB/s
Read: 28 MB/s

Clearly there is a performance hit for this drive with the encryption. However, I feel that the trade off of security for a good price is well worth waiting a few extra seconds for a file to copy. Overall I feel like this drive is secure, well built, and easy to use. If keeping your data secure is a priority, this is a great option at a great price

Other Thoughts: I received this product as a bzzagent...When I first received this drive I was pleasantly surprised by the build quality. I’ve used numerous drives before and for this price point, this drive surpasses them all. I like the sleeve design that Kingston used with this. The sleeve is made of a sturdy material and it seems as though it will offer ample protection without the worry of losing a cap or damaging the drive when it's in your pocket. Another nice touch is a small hole in the metal sleeve that allows the LED to be seen when the drive is plugged in.

4 out of 5 eggsEasy to use - Win7 Compatible

Pros: Portable
Windows 7 x64 compatible
5 year warranty
24/7 free support
Security
Encryption

Cons: Lanyard
Only 2G secure space

Other Thoughts: I received the Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ for free as a BzzAgent. I was pleased that although the packaging states that it is a native Windows Vista device, it does work well with Windows 7 x64.

I am pleased with the security features and the overall design of the product. Although the lack of a factory attached lanyard was annoying. It took more time to attach the little string inside the packaging (don't throw away the box before finding this!) than it did to install the utility.

The product is very compact and portable, but this also means it can be lost very easily. If you do get the little lanyard attached, it can become unattached quite easily. Thankfully, the DataTraveler Locker+ has encryption and security features to keep your data safe. Just realize only a portion of the flash drive is secure.

All in all, a good product. 4/5

4 out of 5 eggsWin XP: Read!!!

Pros: Works after tweaks. Permanently free up 2 consecutive drive letters after system/CD using Disk Management. See below.

Cons: Official support info on site:

This is a common Windows XP issue caused by a drive letter conflict. In configurations where the network drive letter(s) follow physical drive letters, Windows XP may assign newly inserted flash drives a drive letter that is already taken by a network share. For this reason, you need two free consecutive drive letters available after physical drive letters (such as system partition, and optical drives).

Administrative Users:

Non-Administrative Users:
By default, non-administrative users cannot change drive letters for flash drives.
