5 out of 5 eggs Best. Flash. Drive. Ever. 11/19/2013

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 G2 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Red) Model DT101G2/8GBZ


Let me start off by saying that I've had this drive for 5 days shy of 3 years (purchased 11/24/10). I've had a few other drives, but this is still the best. I came back to the product page because it had gone missing and I was considering buying another one. I don't use it much for mass storage these days as I have two 32gb flash drives.

I mainly use this one these days for installing OS and running Live USB. One of my two 32gb drives is capable of booting/installing OS, and has slightly higher R/W speeds according to tests, but runs OS slow and unstable. This 8gb runs everything flawlessly. It may take a bit longer to boot, but runs about as stable as any internal drive at USB 2.0 speeds!

For those reading, this drive IS compatible with Windows 7 USB/DVD Tool.


None! They make 32gb, 64gb, and 128gb versions of this flash drive?! Umm...I'll be right back...let me just buy them all.

Other Thoughts:

Now, I'm going to buy either a 32 or 64gb DT101, but still keep this one for installing/running OS. Who still uses DVD drives?
