2 out of 5 eggsHow slow can you go?

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/16GBZ

Pros: I really like the form factor on these; they are really strong and as a solid piece, they hold up well to abuse. I got one for my wife a year ago, and she still has not managed to destroy it (other drives came back in pieces). When they went on sale, I picked up 6 more for my office as we use them frequently and I figured they would work well.

Cons: This drive is abysmally slow. I zeroize the drives with dd on a Linux machine, and typically, I get around 20-27 MB/s write speed on USB2 plugs. These drives write zeros at 4 MB/s. I have heard about Kingston and slow memory, but 4 MB/s? I can almost wipe two of my 64 GB Patriot Flash drives in the time it takes to wipe one of these 16 GB drives.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome USB drive

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/16GBZ

Pros: Rugged.
Tiny.
Lightweight.
Decent speed - reads at about 30MB/s.

Cons: Aluminum gets scratched after inserting several times.
Flash chip popped out after using for a month...
...glued it back in, and no problems since.
It's a bit slow, and gets slower the more you transfer...
...usually 10-15MB/s, but can slow down to 4MB/s if it's still copying for more than 5 minutes.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks as it should

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/16GBZ

Pros: Had this for quite some time now, carry on a key chain in my pocket every day. Has not failed one time. Is it as fast as others? I don't know or really care, it works great for keeping and moving text and other data files. It has gotten wet, dirty, and a little beat up by other things in my pocket, but never a problem. With an adapter it works with my android phone.

Cons: Wish it had a micro usb connector for my phone (that I did not own when this thumb drive was purchased).

5 out of 5 eggsThe best drive I've ever owned.

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/16GBZ

Pros: I am a professional system administrator in the IT industry, and I use flash drives a LOT. (For imaging/repair purposes) This drive has held up past all my other drives for years. All the others break because they're made out of cheap plastic, but this drive has a full metal (unibody I guess) case making it more sturdy.

Yeah, there's other full metal unibody drives out there, but this one is more affordable.

The big metal hole on the back of it makes it easy to clip onto things, and also serves as a handle for pulling out the drive.

Cons: Nothing! Really!

4 out of 5 eggsWorked good while it worked

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/16GBZ

Pros: 16GB, metal case feels sturdy, transfer speeds are acceptable.

Cons: 2 months into its life, I plugged it into a USB port on my computer, and it failed. Tried on several other computers. It's dead, Jim.

Other Thoughts: Worked good while it worked, mine just had some bad luck

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive for a great price

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/16GBZ

Pros: Good Gb to dollar amount ratio.
Trusted brand name.
Extremely reliable and rugged.
Great transfer speeds for the price.

Cons: None. Great flashdrive.

Other Thoughts: Other posts have bashed this things transfer rates. This drive wasn't made for fast transfer speeds. If you are looking for a performance drive, then this isn't the drive for you. If you are looking for a great rugged drive that you can put on your keychain and not worry about it working, then you have found it.

5 out of 5 eggsGood USB

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler SE9 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model DTSE9H/16GBZ

Pros: - Small
- Durable
- Easy to Carry on a Keyring
- Decently fast for USB 2.0

Cons: - None

Other Thoughts: I like these little flash drives so much that I own two of them. While they are only USB 2.0, they are still relatively fast. They are very easy to put on a keyring and not worry about them ripping off or some plastic casing being broken rendering the stick unusable. I have had one of these that has been my faithful companion with Windows 7 on it for about a year and a half, and I just got a second one that will be traveling with me for Windows 8. I have nothing bad to say about these flash drives.
