This little flash drive is nice.

Also, not being able to clip the cap to the other end of the USB drive is a real pain.

I was eventually able to format it on another computer but this is just weird.

I've bought Kingston USB drives exclusively for years, but this is probably my last one. I actually got 3 of them on sale (non-Amazon site) and it's a good thing they were cheap and I got more than one, for the first one suffered physical failure within a week. As another user posted, the cap is hard to remove and the clear plastic case came off far too easily. The drive fails to mount half the time I insert it; must pull it out and put it back in and only then will the PC/Mac (I use it on both) will see it. And the USB plug started "drooping" at weird angles, showing that it is not fastened firmly enough inside the drive; it's only a matter of time before it breaks off entirely and the drive is kaput.

So I moved on to the second drive. When first inserted, it claimed to Disk Utility that it was 1.9 TB in size. As really cool as that would have been, it prevented the drive from being formatted. Unplugging and replugging had no effect--it steadfastly claimed to be 1.9 TB in size. I was eventually able to format it on another computer but this is just weird. I've never had issues with USB drives before and now suddenly 2 out of 3 of the same model give me bizarre behavior? It's time to move on to a different brand. I read recently that Kingston has started subcontracting its manufacture out to other, less-reliable firms. I strongly suspect that's what happened here; to get a cheap 32Gb drive to market they went with the low bidder and slapped the "Kingston" name on it. Sad.

I have other Kingston travel USB drives. I love their product.
The only thing I would say is the drive is a little thick, so
if you have a computer with very closely usb drive inputs, you can't put
another USB drive next to it. It takes up too much room.

First, other reviewers are exactly right about the cap. It is very difficult to remove. Also, not being able to clip the cap to the other end of the USB drive is a real pain. Someone dropped the ball on that one.

However, two helpful hints in removing the cap. First, I took a nail file and gently filed down the raised edges that allow the cap to clip onto the body of the USB drive. be careful not to remove too much else you'll never get the cap to stay on. I think it is better for it to be too tight than too loose.

Also, the clips are on the longer portion of the cap, so if you hold the cap by the shorter sides of the cap, it comes off a lot easier. If you are holding on the broad side of the cap, you inadvertently press down pushing the raised edges even more firmly into the indentation which allows the cap to clip on making it more difficult to remove the cap.

I am testing this drive's read and write speeds and they are generally OK. It has an average read speed of 23 MB/s and a write speed of 13 MB/s under ideal conditions.

The body of this drive is a little large (it is a 32 GB after all) and it might not play nice when trying to plug it in immediately adjacent to other USB cables. I am downloading Ubuntu USB install/distro and will leave a followup review at some point to let you guys know how well that worked out using this drive.

This little flash drive is nice. It's small and has never failed me once, unlike a couple others that I've had. I totally recommend this one.
