1 out of 5 eggsWorks Great Till It Dies

Pros: Was a nice USB 3.0 drive from a brand I usually buy from.

Cons: Well, after 9 months of owning the flash drive it just stopped working. For a while it didn't work in my SO's USB 3.0 but we blamed it on his new board since it worked on my 3.0 then one day it just stopped working all together.

Other Thoughts: Buy something else. I have several PNY drives that I got in a multipack like six years ago that are still going strong.

1 out of 5 eggsPretty Cruddy

Pros: Looks great. Worked well while it worked.

Cons: It broke pretty quickly.

Other Thoughts: I had high hopes for this usb drive because it looked and felt indestructible. However, one day non of my computers would even recognize that it was plugged in. I then broke it into pieces and burned it in the fireplace.

1 out of 5 eggsDied after two months....

Pros: Very fast while it worked...

Cons: Failed after two months. After looking at reviews this seems to be pretty common with these. Very disappointed with Kingston. I paid extra to get the quality!

2 out of 5 eggsKingston USD

Pros: -Worked well while it worked

Cons: -Died after about 2.5 months. Good thing I didn't have super important documents on it.
-I did safely eject hardware every time I was done using it, so it's not that.

Other Thoughts: -I might RMA it, see if it's worth the hassle. If I have to pay shipping, probably not.
-Looking at other users, I would recommend to stay away from this drive. Seems to have high failure rate after ~2 months.

1 out of 5 eggsAnother one bites the dust

Pros: Fast while it works which is typically less than a few weeks.

Cons: Well here is my followup to my 3 star review below, before I'd even received my RMA for my first failed drive, I started using the other drive daily and now it too comes up as a SkyMEDI usb device with no usable disk.

3 out of 5 eggsDied about 2 months in.

Pros: When it works it is great, speed is good can boot from it on any system with no problem. Installed Windows 7 from it very quickly on a USB 3.0 port. 5 year warranty, that they seem to back. (otherwise would've been a 1 star)

Cons: Two complaints, the PNP name is awful, "Kingston DT Rubber 3.0", sounds like a contraceptive. I bought 2 and the one I use the most died within 60 days. It basically shows up as a different device, "SKYMEDI USB Drive", which is good since I disliked the name but the new device shows capacity as RAW. Even running testdisk on it couldn't recover the data. Trying to format said disk fails as well.

Other Thoughts: Kingston is letting me RMA it but shipping it is my responsibility and for the hassle and cost of shipping I'd be better off catching it on sale or buying another brand.
The numbers are difficult to read but if you have good eyesight and a magnifying glass they can be had so long as your scratches on the metal aren't too big. I'm recording both my devices serial numbers just in case I have issues in the future. They have a 5 year warranty but I'm betting most people don't bother returning it when they break.
Along with Hard Drives, USB Memory Drives are another item I'll start buying strictly based on the warranty. If they lack confidence in their equipment I'm not going to trust my data on it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi Phil,
