5 out of 5 eggsGreat USB Drive

This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler Generation 4 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DTIG4/16GB)

Pros: There are many pros to this USB drive
- 16 Gb for only 8.99, cheap and fast
- Fast use for persistent Live use
- USB 3.0

Cons: This product comes with no USB strap. Thus making it hard to carry if you don't have pockets or a bag.

Other Thoughts: The USB is a great device for the cheap management. Recommended to any person who has to use a live USB or just want to carry about as storage. This product has helped me a lot with many of my computer tasks, and is amazingly useful.

4 out of 5 eggsas advertised

This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler Generation 4 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DTIG4/16GB)

Pros: Reasonable speeds
16GB
Fair price

Cons: Cap holder on loop
a little warm.

Other Thoughts: Good enough. Not the fastest but far from the slowest.
Used to install a few OS's (win 7, 10 and server 12R2) worked good.

after about 2 hours of installing various OSes it was warm to the touch but not hot.

The Loop where you would attach a key chain is also the cap holder. I loose caps a a lot... very minor issue but annoying still.

also they work with the Kia Media center very well.

3 out of 5 eggsSlow poke

This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler Generation 4 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DTIG4/16GB)

Pros: Works and was cheap. Decent cap design.

Cons: Slow 10mb write speed that they conveniently don't tell you anywhere even in there own spec sheet. I have faster USB2 drives that were just as cheap.

No activity L.E.D.

Other Thoughts: Two Eggs removed for hiding and/or not publishing read/write speeds.

2 out of 5 eggsSlower than Expected

This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler Generation 4 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DTIG4/16GB)

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Seems to write @ ~1/2 spped of Gen 3 USB 3 16BG Kingston stick. Tried on 2 Win7 PC's on mult. ports. Maxes out @~10MB/s writes where Gen 3 averages 18~20 MB/s on same large file writes. For example, copying 6 1GB .VOB files on G4 takes 10 minutes vs <5 for G3. Same for 2 sticks.

5 out of 5 eggs100% Reliability

This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler Generation 4 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DTIG4/16GB)

Pros: I work in the IT field and this drive was purchased for moving files that range in size from 50MB to 14GB (programs and virtual machines) from PC to PC for diagnostic work.

The drive has not failed me yet, and I foresee several years of continuous, reliable use, before a replacement thumb drive is needed.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Today, thumb drives can be purchased for incredibly cheap prices; there have been a couple of times that I regretted not purchasing a larger drive (128GB), however, if you need a dirt cheap thumb drive with not so dirt cheap qualities, look no further than this thumb drive.

Kingston has been making great, reliable products for years, and I look forward to purchasing from them in the future.
