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

Other Thoughts: Good price for the 3.0, been a week and they've worked great for playing movies through my WD TV Live

1 out of 5 eggsNot Reliable

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

Pros: Not super small or overly large, fits on a key ring (lanyard).

Cons: Large files (9-10 Gb) become corrupt. After running into the issue once I thought it was a fluke, tried formatting and coping several times to the first bad drive, no go. Second drive didn't initially have a problem but after about 4 days quickly ran into the same issue. This model either has cheaper memory or a bad part. Either way would not recommend for anyone writing large files and is looking for reliability (remember this is 2 bad drives that I purchased). The file I tested with was a good file, spending the extra 20 minutes to write to a USB2 drive had no issues.

Other Thoughts: Kingston use to be a decent brand from what I remember, hopefully this product is just a odd ball.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Karl,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue experienced with the DTIG4 flash drives. We perform 100% testing on all of our products to ensure quality and reliability, as detailed here: http://www.kingston.com/us/company/testing . The drives would typically come formatted to FAT32 by default and require reformatting to NTFS or exFAT in order to copy over a single file larger than 4GB. Outside of that there should be no issue copying and storing large files. We are here to help and can troubleshoot with you to determine what may be causing the issue. If needed the drives, can be replaced under their five year warranty. 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 choosing Kingston as your upgrade partner.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Implementation of USB 3.0

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

Pros: -Good write (~25MBps) and INCREDIBLE read (~100MBps)
-Good price for the size
-Solid keychain loop
-Cap attaches solidly

Cons: -Not the prettiest girl at the party

Other Thoughts: My computer running a i5-3570k and Samsung 840 was what I got those transfer speeds with using large files. The read speeds really got me, since a lot of internal HDDs would actually be the bottle neck if you're using this USB to copy files over! Write speeds are meh, but only because I've been spoiled by SSDs. Find this drive on sale and you can't go wrong.

5 out of 5 eggsKingston DataTraveler Generation 4 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive

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

Pros: Great flash memory stick, works fine. I am very satisfied with my purchase.

Cons: There is no con's it's been working fine for several months now. I have used Kingston's brand of flash memory sticks before and they are still working perfectly.

Other Thoughts: I only paid about seven dollars when it was on sale. Very good deal at that price. I have used it for a Linux boot drive, and to save all my website passwords.

3 out of 5 eggsKingston 16GB

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

Pros: Cheap, does the job.

Cons: Slow. only 5 Mb/s faster than my USB 2.0 Stick. Would not buy again.

Other Thoughts: purchased two sticks for 14 bucks.
fast when reading but slow on writing. i mostly use it for transfering movies to my HTPC. Average speed is about 11mb/s on a USB 3.0 which is pretty slow in my opinion.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for any issue experienced with the DTIG4 flash drives. The DTIG4 is an entry level USB 3.0 drive and does not offer performance transfer rates as you have experienced. If you are looking for a performance USB 3.0 drive, please consider our DTR30G2 which offers 120MB/s read and 25-45MB/s write in USB 3.0 ports. 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.

1 out of 5 eggsStop working within 3 months

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

Pros: It worked fine before crashed.

Cons: It completely stopped working within 3 months since I bought it, and I lost my files. As I chatted with a technician in Kingston, he was nice though. I was finally told to receive a replacement, but that is not what I really want...

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the problem experienced with the DTIG4 flash drive. If the drive itself is not being recognized by a computer at all, as though it is not connected or that claims it has no storage media, you may still be able to retrieve your data by contacting a professional data recovery service. Data recovery software would not be successful since the computer cannot see the part of the drive that contains the data. 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 fail or be defective. In these instances, we are here to troubleshoot and when needed replace the product under warranty. 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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat reliable Kingston USB 3.0

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

Pros: 16GB USB 3.0 under $8.
Kingston reliability.
Solid construction.
Good performance/price.

Cons: Could be thinner.

Other Thoughts: I have used Kingston memory products for many years.
Rock solid reliability, have never had a stick of ram or USB drive fail.
USB speed is seldom best in class, but always adequate or better.
For $8 I couldn't pass this one up. It has already been put to work moving files
for a windows7 ~ linux mint16 dual-boot install, performed without a problem.
Good affordable drive. I'm very satisfied with this Kingston USB, I believe
this is my 6th USB drive from Kingston. I would recommend this drive without hesitation.
Oh, and Newegg delivery and order process was smooth and trouble free as usual. Thanks Newegg!
