What a great gadget! It is so tiny, about 2/3 a stick of gum long. But what a worker. I use 4 Macs - 2 run OS9 and 2 run OSX and it worked great on all of them. I just took it out of the little package, plugged it in to my USB port, booted the computer and there it was on my desktop as "Kingston." Drag your file to it and as the little drive transfers it, a little green light on the side of the drive will blink until everything is downloaded. Just unplug it from the USB and plug it in where you want it and bada-boom, bada-bing. I keep losing the cap, which secures very tightly to the body of the drive and pulls off.

The important thing about this, compatability issues aside, is the fact that this thing is FAST! It transfers substantial files very quickly! Love it.

Okay, not a computer expert, but I am an "expert" end user. I say this is a cool little gadget! I liked the plug-and-play aspect, the small size, and, in particular, the sturdy little package. I think it can hold up to my toting it around in a shirt pocket or a purse, as the case is sturdy plastic and there is a cap that appears to be solidly attached. I put all the files I need to transfer (hundreds) on this little USB drive and it transferred quickly, especially considering I have USB 1, not 2. I also liked that all those files took up a tiny fraction of the drive's storage.

Overall, a good investment. In the local WalMart I saw 512Mb drives for $26-something. The price is right.

I got 2 of these recently and I love them. They works well and quickly.

The things that set them apart from the other flash drives I looked at are: I trust the Kingston name and it has a 5 year warrenty. I don't know why the other person suggested to get the extra warrenty when his broke after 6 months.

Pros:

0. It works, and it works quickly!

1. Good price even without a rebate

2. 5 year warrenty

3. Hole for Lanyard/keychain is on the drive and not the cap (I hate the thought of looking down at my keys and seeing a cap only! Why do some other companies put the hole on the cap only???)

4. Plastic, but doesn't feel as cheap as the PNY one I already own.

5. Cap fits snug and secure

Cons:

1. You call that inch and a half long thing a lanyard?

2. I do like it when there's a hole on the cap and the drive so that you don't loose either. The cap is nice and snug so I'm not worried about it falling out, I just don't want to search for it when I'm done using the drive!

As you can see, I had to stretch for complaints.

With this 1GB drive you never need burn a CD-Rom again. Why bother? This holds 50% more than a standard CD, and it doesn't require you to have a CD burner or a blank CD lying around.

I've found that this drive really hits the right balance of size and cost. It is big enough to do most jobs, and it is small enough that if you had to replace it, it would not be a big deal. I often use it to move Powerpoint presentations from one computer to another, or to transfer music or video.

Haven't used one before? You pull off the cap and plug the drive directly into your computer's USB port. (You don't need any software or drivers to preload - just plug it in to any computer.) When it is plugged in the computer automatically recognizes it as a new drive right on your desktop. I.e. Go to your "My Computer" section and it now shows up as a new drive. You then treat it like you would any other drive -you can just drag and drop files to it.

One final note: the place where a line attaches is on the drive body itself, and not the cap. This is good because if you attach it to something it won't slide out of the cap leaving you with an empty cap tied to your neck (or keychain) with no drive...

And finally, I think this is a great present for non-techies. My parents have finally become converts and they use this all the time.

All,
This may not be the cheapest flash-drive around, but with cheaper ones you get what you pay for. My Lexar and PNY drives are dead now. This one is still going strong. It has a rugged simple design that grows on you. It doesn't try to be to clever (aka Memorex U3 drives).

I've had this USB Flash drive for several months now, and I have never experienced any problems accessing or storing data on this drive. From that standpoint, the drive has been flawless. However, I like to keep my USB Flash drive on my keychain, and the plastic loop is barely big enough to allow it to sit on the metal ring of my keychain (my keychain being a standard metal ring keychain, not over sized). Finally, the plastic ring part broke, and I can't attach the flash drive to my key chain anymore. If only they made the plastic ring a little (just a few millimeters, really) bigger or if they made the plastic ring out of metal instead, this wouldn't happen. I just think the case could have been better designed. Otherwise, the drive works well.

Pros:

-Durable

-Mac and PC compatible

-Lightweight

-Great Price

-Reliable brand (Kingston)

-1GB storage

Cons:

-Cap comes on kind of frequent

-Not too stylish

-Not as good as Sandisk

-No lanyard

-Must have Windows 2000/XP or MacOS9 or higher (not good for those old school users)

BOTTOM LINE: It could be faster, better, have more caps, and a lanyard. But if you have a somewhat new computer, this is a great deal.
