The Kingston Technology DataTraveler 16GB USB Flash Drive is the latest update from Kingston in their standard design. This model doubles the capacity of the Kingston 8GB DataTraveler USB flash drive that I have used alongside my many other flash drives for almost a year. All of these drives have worked very well for me.

The 16 GB capacity on this guy makes it very useful for even more file backups or USB storage than other drives. There are a few cons to this standard design, but over time they have come to seem even more minor. This is a solid product. I will have to use it a little longer before I can report on any other minor differences in durability or performance.

PROS:
+ 16 GB capacity allows even larger data backups than ever before
+ Durable NAND flash memory stands up to a lot of abuse
+ Compatible with Mac and PC operating systems (XP, Vista, OS X)
+ Kingston brand has well deserved reputation for quality
+ Reliable performance
+ Very light case
+ Rear whole to connect a lanyard or keychain
+ Rear bar to hold the cap while in use
+ USB 2.

But after reading some of what is here, I felt the need to chime in and give this item the credit it is due and the positive rating it has earned.

Do I care about color schemes? No. Do I care about the possibility of cap loss? No; I tend to take good care of devices that contain sensitive or personal data. Do I care that a supplier may have delivery issues? Well, yes; but I'm not going to penalize an item and skew perceptions just so I can vent.

I own two drives of this same design and have nothing negative to say about them. Of these drives I ask very little - provide a bunch of storage space and don't lose my data. They do both of these very well.

One last word on the cap-less design: it may be a great choice for those who lose parts to stuff, but I have a hunch that the 'catch' that prevents unintended retraction will become worn after a time, rendering it difficult to use. A drive of this design that I have been borrowing from a friend is starting to show signs of this behavior and it's only a few months old. I could be wrong about this prediction, but I do know that the capped design will never experience this.

My computer has been reminding me lately that it is full. Too many downloads clogging up the memory. The only solution to that is either to purge all of my goodies, or to transfer them to an external drive.

The Kingston DataTraveler has a good reputation, is inexpensive and easy to use. I wanted a drive that could hold a lot of information, so I went with the 16GB which had the most bang for my buck.

I am happy to say that all of my movies went right onto the drive without filling it up. It took the burden off my computer, which improved the speed and freed up enough space to start collecting some new goodies.

Even better, because my DVD player, the Philips all-region 1080i upscaling DVD player, has a USB port, I can pop the DataTraveler drive into my DVD player and watch my movies right on my TV.

Having lost my 1GB data traveler, I thought it time to step up to something more substantial - the 16GB version. At first, I was very disappointed. For some reason, it kept getting corrupted, and I'd lose recently saved files. This happened in both WinXP and Win2K, despite using proper eject sequences. I had this happen several times. Needless to say, I wasn't happy. Fortunately I was able to recover most of the work, but losing and recovering 8 hours worth of typing is far, far worse than not losing it at all. Note that these files were nowhere near the size limits for FAT.

My solution - reformatting to NTFS. I know this creates problems for Mac users that Fat16/32 don't have, but I don't use a Mac (so no lost stars there). Since reformatting, my disk has been completely stable. -2 stars for losing my data and making me reformat it to work properly. And while I don't have problems losing the cap, I would like a larger and more substantial lanyard hole.

Some performance info (using eXibition SW "Drive Speed Test"):

1MB write 0.876s
1MB read 1.173s
10MB write 7.251s
10MB read 5.079s
Overall write speed 16,934 KB/s
Overall read speed 33,862 KB/s
File copy speed (10 MB) 6.313s
Directory lookup (10000 files) 5.141s
File delete (20 MB) 0.016s

For comparison sake, my 1TB SATA drive's overall write speed is 40,134 KB/s and overall read speed is 35,019KB/s. These tests were done on a P2.6GHz HT with 3GB dual channel ram running Win2K.
