3 out of 5 eggsJust ok

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler G3 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (White & Blue) Model DTIG3/16GBZ

Pros: Looks nice, it does in fact work.

Cons: Write speeds are dreadfully slow! Between 2-4mb/s.... It always start super fast on transfer 20+ mb/s then after 3 seconds its down to 2-4mb. Huge disappointment.

Other Thoughts: I got this from a return from a 16gb drive I purchased over 4 years ago. The old drive would always write 18-22 mb/s this is the replacement and it is soooo slow. Old drive died after I used it as xbox storage.

5 out of 5 eggsnever failed

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler G3 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (White & Blue) Model DTIG3/16GBZ

Pros: i have never had any corrupted files using any kingston stick. i even have the one i received from my school for free 5 years ago and it still works like a charm. i always get these to back up my semesters work and portfolios and i check them periodically to make sure they still work.

Cons: a little on the big side and i always manage to loose the stupid cap.

Other Thoughts: never failed me yet and i don't plan on stopping to use them any time soon

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler G3 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (White & Blue) Model DTIG3/16GBZ

Pros: Great and spacious drive, respected brand.

3 out of 5 eggsTOO SLOW !

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler G3 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (White & Blue) Model DTIG3/16GBZ

Pros: No input/output errors under moderate use.
Reasonably well built. I got a really good price and (as always) excellent service from Newegg.

Cons: SLOOOOW.
This is the slowest USB 2.0 flash drive I own. If speed was the most important criteria for me I would have returned it. Because of the speed issues, I will probably keep it and use it to archive old text files.

Other Thoughts: I like Kingston and own several of their flash and SDHC cards, but the next flash drive I buy will not be one of theirs.

1 out of 5 eggsdisappointing outcome

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler G3 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (White & Blue) Model DTIG3/16GBZ

Pros: I'd really like to be writing a great review on the 3 of these I ordered, but newegg cancelled that order without explanation. what I really want is the 3 drives I ordered at the price the order was placed

Cons: you have to receive it to use it

Other Thoughts: at minimum a courtesy call with an explanation was the kind "customer service" I've come to expect after 7 years of regular business with a vendor
