5yrs and still running strong

Pros: - Reliable
- Inexpensive
- Bought this back in 2011 and still running strong

Cons: - Not really a con, just wish it was 3.0. Considering I bought this 5yrs ago, USB 3.0 wasn't as mainstream.

Other Thoughts: - I've accidentally washed it a couple of times, it still worked.

Kingston USB 2.0

Pros: None

Cons: A turtle is faster than this USB drive. it took one (1) hour and 20 minutes to load 10.1 Gig of date. I have a 2nd Kingston 16gb USB 2.0 and it will load the data in about 15 minutes. This drive is defective.

Other Thoughts: Kingston should recall all of these drives. Some are good and some or bad. Don`t take a chance you will receive a good drive. Shop other drives. Had I read the reviews on this drive I would not have purchased.

Manufacturer Response:
Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for an issue caused by the speed of the DT101G2 flash drive. This drive is an entry level USB 2.0 drive and does not offer performance transfer speeds. If you are looking for a performance USB drive, please consider one of our USB 3.0 performance drives such as the DTHX30 which offers 30MB/s in USB 2.0 and 135MB/s in USB 3.0 port. For any further assistance, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

So Slow

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.

Manufacturer Response:
Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer our assistance. Please understand the DT101G2 is a standard USB 2.0 drive and does not offer performance transfer rates. Although, USB 1.1 speeds would be rather low as it's maximum bandwidth was 12Mbit/s or 125KB/s more realistically around 100KB/s which in it's day would not have been much of an issue. USB 2.0 has a realistic limitation of about 30MB/s which would be offered with performance USB drives. Such as the DTHX30 which offers USB 3.0 write speed up to 135MB/s and USB 2.0 speed of 30MB/s. For any further assistance, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.
