4 out of 5 eggsGets the job done

Pros: Decent sequential and random read speeds. 16GB for cheap. Small. Solid and simple construction.

Cons: Write speed is pretty slow, even for large sequential transfers. I let a coworker borrow it and they never returned it.

Other Thoughts: Needed an inexpensive 4GB+ flash drive to use as a bootable install drive for any one of several OSes. This fit the bill. It takes a while to copy the images over but its quick to boot from.

1 out of 5 eggsFool me twice...

Pros: Easy to keep on a keychain.

Cons: First one fell apart - the guts literally fell out of the shell. Gone.
Second one is intermittently recognized by any given computer, with no rhyme or reason - doesn't matter how it's formatted, contacts are clean, port is KG.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for the money

Pros: I used the smaller 8gb version of this for over a year and never had a problem, so i upgraded to this guy. I love how small it is and use it as my keychain usb and store the stuff I use everyday on it. Great value as an everyday small file transfer tool.

Cons: below average transfer speeds

Other Thoughts: for the price this is very nice as an every day tool, but not for larger files

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the DTGE9 flash drive. As an entry level USB 2.0 drive the DTGE9 does not offer high transfer speeds but should not cause a computer to hang. We perform 100% testing on all of our products, as detailed here: http://www.kingston.com/us/company/testing . As nothing is perfect there is a small chance for one to be defective or fail. In these instances, we stand by our product and can replace the drive under it's five year warranty. Or if preferred it can be returned to Newegg for a refund under their policy. For any further assistance, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for in-office jump drives.

Pros: Works perfectly, and very sharp looking.

Cons: After several uses, the our surface shows wear marks (two front, two back) from the USB receptacle grip points. Not a big deal though.

Other Thoughts: These are not made to use on your key ring, as they will get scratched up fairly easily. I use them for Linux ISO and computer repair diagnostic tools so I can write with wet-erase marker on the surface and hang them on my peg board for unfettered access.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat mestick

Pros: This has a lot of storage and I can fit some backup data for videos on it. It's also good for UnetBootIn.

Cons: Is kind of slow with transfer speed and not real good for relying on with alot of backup for your computer.

Other Thoughts: UnetBootIn is probably the first reason I bought this, but also for fast backup on my videos and music.
