2 out of 5 eggsKingston DT 16gb 3.0

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTM30/16GB

Pros: Cheap and compact. Aesthetically pleasing.

Wasn't DOA, hasn't failed yet.

Cons: It is a tight fit in whatever USB port I insert it into. I literally have to force it in to all of them. Due to the extremely tight fit, the metal is already bending and the coloring was scratched off after the first time inserted. This is obviously a budget drive, but the product design is extremely lacking.

When inserted, it appears to be sticking out at an angle, no matter how I insert it.

The speeds are not up to par. Like I said, I understand this is a budget drive; but it is almost as if Kingston made it 3.0 just to sucker people in to buying it due to this fact.

I wouldn't purchase it to use everyday, may harm the USB ports on whatever machine it is used on. Funny because that is how it is marketed.

Other Thoughts: It appears Kingston as a company is going after consumers who want a 'cute' appearance over function in most of their USB drives these days.

Not the worst purchase but I will not buy another.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer our assistance. The DTM30 is an entry-level USB 3.0 drive that is rated at 70MB/s read and 10MB/s write. The drive should plug straight into a USB port and fit snugly in order to maintain a stable connection. It may appear to be too tight as the scratches created by inserting and removing the drive are more noticeable on the colored surface. Scratching of the USB connector is a normal occurrence on USB drives but is less noticeable on drives with no coloring. Considering the drive you received appears to be going in at an angle there may be an issue with that particular drive. We are here to help and can further investigate this issue, if faulty the drive can be replaced the drive under it's five year warranty. For 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 eggsPathetically Slow

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTM30/16GB

Pros: It works

Cons: But it works SSSLLLLLOOOWWWWLLLLLYYYYY. Pathetic writes speeds. I have my doubts that its 3.0

Other Thoughts: Buy something else. I'd send it back but it only cost $9

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for any issue experienced with the DT Mini 3.0 USB drive. We want all of our customers to be happy with their purchase of our products. This drive is an entry level USB 3.0 compliant drive and does not offer performance transfer speeds. There are multiple factors associated with USB 3.0 standards outside of the maximum capable speeds of the devices. The DTM30/16GB offers a 70MB/s read and 10MB/s write speed. If you were looking for a performance USB 3.0 drive, please consider our DTHX30 which offers 135MB/s write or our DTR30 which offers 30MB/s write in USB 3.0 ports. For 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 eggsLove it

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTM30/16GB

Pros: Easy to use. Plug and voila! I like that it's small and has no hidden latch or slide. The color is fabulous, which is why I bought it in the first place.
Very happy with this item for the price I got it at.

Cons: Will not fit into the USB port in the front of my computer, and is even a tight fit in the back outlet. I tried to put some force behind it and it simply will not slide into the front slot. I believe it is because the edges are too square; possibly because this device is a 3.0 and my slots are 2.0.

1 out of 5 eggsFAILED

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTM30/16GB

Pros: Small. Cute.

Cons: While they worked they were slower than my USB2 sticks, even in a USB3 port. Only lasted 3 months with light use.

Other Thoughts: My friend and I bought a total of 4 DTM30-16GBs in Feb 2014. They were used a couple of times per week to move small documents between PCs in the same building. It's now May of 2014 and all 4 have failed. When you plug them in nothing happens. They aren't detected as hardware at all. My requests for RMA have been denied because I don't have a "Retail" receipt.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for the issue that's occurred with the DT Mini 3.0 flash drives and the complication experienced with RMA. We stand by all our products and can replace them under warranty. If purchased on Newegg, your order confirmation would serve as a retail receipt. We are here to help and can work with you on this issue, it is best to call as email communication can be delayed. 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 item

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTM30/16GB

Pros: The end fits into the usb slot. No caps to worry about. No need to push the plug out. And that gives you an idea of how small it is. Fast enough for Readyboost. Love it! Except my grandson talked me out of it and now I have to get another.

Cons: The plug might get trash in it. But you could blow it out.
