This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model DT101G2/16GBZ
Pros: Nice physical size, well built and good price.
Cons: Very, very slow. The speeds both read and write are in the USB 1.1 range rather than USB 2. This is the largest of my USB drives and also the slowest by far, making it almost useless for large amounts of data.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: I have 2 of these I purchased at different times when the price was reduced to use in future builds. The USB port always works fine, but the flash card ports give me some problems They work fine until the computers their in wake from sleep mode and then they are no longer accessible. If I re-boot the system they're fine again. This occurs with two different brands of LGA 775 motherboards, Gigabyte & AsRock so I'm inclined right or wrong to blame the card readers.
Other Thoughts: I've played with all of the Windows & Bios settings that I thought might be causing the problem to no avail. I haven't seen this issue mentioned before so I guess I'm one in a million.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Liked the fact that this cable is sheathed.
Cons: Ground wire came loose from the MB connector. After discovering this, I noticed that the ground wire was somewhat malformed near the insertion point to the connector, indicating a manufacturing glitch. I re-wired the good half to an old USB MB connector I'd saved from an old computer to make this cable usable.
Other Thoughts: I got a bad one, but I think that was just the luck of the draw.READ FULL REVIEW
