Dies early in your ownership - kiss your data goodbye!
RMA is a hoop-jumping exercise.
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 . . .
