This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB

Pros:

Rubberized covering

Cons:

Dies early in your ownership - kiss your data goodbye!

RMA is a hoop-jumping exercise.

Other Thoughts:

It's Kingston, so you expect it to last. That is not the reality of it.

I'm writing after the death of my replacement for the first one of these I RMAed to Kingston. Neither lasted more than 1 month.

RMA process is a major challenge - they want you to read off a number imprinted on the tongue of the drive which is next to impossible to read - to make sure it isn't a knockoff falsely labeled as a Kingston.

Hey Newegg - I sent them a copy of my Newegg SO and they said I couldn't trust you to sell me only genuine parts. I found the idea that Newegg would do anything along those lines highly insulting.

But they were polite about it.

So, I suggest you not get this flash drive. You can't trust it to last, and they don't trust Newegg to sell only genuine parts.

Sounds like a lose-lose situation to me . . .
