Business-like design 09/25/2013
This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 111 64 GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive - 1 Pack
Sturdy design without moving parts, looks great at a black computer case, and in a corproate environment where "enthusiast" devices might not. Small height allows to insert the device in the rear ports next to another plug. Verified compatibility with legacy USB 1.1 ports.
No LED to indicate activity, and warn that the device shouldn't be disconnected. This is usually non-issue with file transfers, as one can simply wait a couple of seconds afterwards, but might be a problem when applications are executed from the stick (and slowly updating their configuration). I am deducting only one Egg, because bulk file copying is still the most common application.
The "rim" at the end might not allow insertion in front panel ports that are horizontally right next to one another.
The speeds are not horrendous. A write speed of 5 MB/s is sufficient for the majority of usage cases. A high capacity Flash memory will always be slower, with all other factors being equal. The speed is limited by the memory configuration. Having a faster interface does not necessarily help. USB 3.0 is the latest hype.
