Product Description

The Legend According to Chinese legend, the twelve animals quarreled one day as to who was to head the cycle of years. The Gods were asked to decide and they held a contest: whoever was to reach the opposite bank of the river would be first, and the rest of the animals would receive their years according to their finish. All the twelve animals gathered at the river bank and jumped in. Unknown to the ox, the rat had jumped upon his back. As the ox was about to jump ashore, the rat jumped off the ox's back, and won the race. The pig, who was very lazy, ended up last. That is why the rat is the first year of the animal cycle, the ox second, and the pig last.

I bought Kingston's Year of the Rabbit flash drive last year during a trip to Taiwan. It was a surprise find and my wife really loves it. After I bought the rabbit drive, I read online that Kingston planned on releasing a new design each year based on Chinese zodiac animals. Since then I have been looking forward to the dragon flash drive.

I had the opportunity to travel to Taiwan again this year but unfortunately was unable to find the dragon drive and was extremely disappointed. After we got back, we were pleasantly surprised that Amazon was selling the dragon drive and at about the same price was it was being sold in Taiwan! Usually people jack up the price but Amazon didn't.

Although I personally would have preferred a much larger capacity not that I have ever really filled up the 8GB.

These flash drives make great gifts as they are affordable, cute and can be quite personal depending on the recipient's Chinese zodiac sign. Even if they are born in the year of the dragon it's still very neat. I highly recommend this item.

I liked this mini dragon usb drive that I have purchased on sale here at amazon. The grip is good and the structure is durable unlike the other designed usb flash drives. It's 8GB as well; there's a lot of files that I could save to it. I also bought the flower necklace usb flash drive but this one is way more durable. This is great for school or work files. You could also attach it along with your car keys so you could bring it anywhere. All in all, I could say thumbs up to this product!

Kingston Dragon USB drive is super cute looking and I have been using it worry free for months.
It also has a ring on top so I can hang it on my key chain. Also, the device is quite small. The head of the dragon is attached to the USB drive and the body is the cover.
Very happy with the purchase.

I thought it might be a touch slow for my needs (I'm using it to boot the Microsoft DaRT toolset for diagnostics and recovery of systems) but it works fine. The material used for the actual body is really nice, and has a great feel and color saturation to it.

I LOVE this flash drive - it is SO cute in person. Unfortunately, it doesn't come with anything to attach the bottom to (some flash drives come with a silicone tab that you can insert into the cap so you don't accidentally leave it somewhere) and within 6 months, despite my best efforts, I have lost the dragon's bottom half. :-( Also, one of the whiskers has broken off. I really want to buy another to replace my current drive because it is so much cuter with the bottom, but this drive is so much more expensive than equivalent capacity flash drives and it just isn't quite worth it. If it came with a tab so I had somewhere to put the cap while I was using my drive, I would buy it again, but I'm not going to waste my money when I'll just lose the new dragon's body, as well.

I got this as a gift, but I played with it plenty first and was impressed by a couple of points. All of the rubber numbs that might get bent do so without any stress on the articulation points, so it's up to plenty of abuse in a pocket or backpack. Second, the feet have an unusual attachment system. They are attached to the body independently of the legs. This must have been to keep the feet from breaking off the legs because the feet are super flexible. Really I'm just impressed with how much thought they put into this little guy, considering his sales must be very seasonal, even though it is the year of the dragon. I'm very confident he'll be around for the next year of the dragon, when he's obsolete but still cute.

Looks just like it does in the picture. I don't know why I was expecting it to be bigger.. It's the same size as your standard USB flash drive. I haven't actually USED the thing as a flash drive, so I can't comment on it's reliability in that aspect. It just makes for a really cute desk decoration.
