5.0 out of 5 stars Solid drive. Little overpriced., September 24, 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
The fact that you have to purchase Microsoft branded drives for the 360 "IS" kind of ridiculous; especially being that they charge about 60% over the retail cost of a 250GB hard drive.

The drives however are solid. There is one known issue with this model of drive in the new 360 Slim. If the drive isn't inserted "just right" you will get what appears to be a "red dot of death" and the console won't work; however, all you have to do is remove the drive and re-insert it making sure it is in all the way, and the problem will correct itself.

And yes, ... I own a 360 slim with this drive in it....

1.0 out of 5 stars Fake! Kingston 128GB DataTraveler150 DOES NOT EXIST!, April 29, 2009
This product is a SCAM. It's been found on Ebay, on Amazon (private seller) and several other places. DO NOT purchase this product.

For verification, I did a little research.

1. This product does not appear on Kingstons site in the US *OR* China.
2. The only place you can purchase "this" product at wholesale is through "third party" vendors. No Kingston autorized vendors/wholesalers have this product.
3. Kingston representatives state that there are *NO* 128GB USB Flash Drives being manufactured by Kingston at this time.
4. At first, the fraudulent product simply had a sticker over the original size on the pacakage, but scammers have obviously become "the wiser" and replaced the card in the bubble-package to read "128 GB"

Do NOT be fooled. This isn't to say that whatever comes in the package won't be 128GB. It's just to state that the product you will be getting obviously won't be a genuine Kingston product. (And the fake is obviously junk, or they wouldn't try to put someone else's name on it. Kingston doesn't even have one yet, ... so if this company was reputable, they'd speak up about who they were and take credit for a "great product" if it were one...)

Freakin' knock-offs....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great prints in about a minute... As advertised..., December 29, 2008
I purchased two of these units. I knew what to expect as far as "time to print." It takes about ONE minute for each print. (4 passes, total. (4th is clear coat.))

So far, I've run about 100 prints through each of the two printers without any issue.

Works VERY well with Pictbridge on both the REBEL XTI and the EOS 40D. As for others, I can not state. So far this is the only method I've used to print. I have not connected it to a computer, or used memory cards, so I am unable to provide any information as to its functionality in those modes.

The "standard" paper these use is a 4X6 "postcard" prints, which come out beautifully.

The cartridge design means you will have EXACTLY the amount of each color for the number of prints in the cartridge. (Paper/INK in the same cartridge!)


Device appears to built quite well. Nothing feels "flimsy" and the unit does not "sound like" it's working hard while running prints. (You can tell a cheap printer quite easily by listening to the motors. It they sound as though they slow down as a print starts, then the motors are junk.)

I will probably buy yet another..... :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Good cartridge design. Functions flawlessly (so far...), December 29, 2008
I am using these with TWO Canon ES30 printers.. I have used a total of four cartridges and am on my fifth and sixth now. No problems AT ALL as of yet...

Cartridge contains exactly the amount of INK as is required to handle exactly the number of prints in each cartridge..


Bought 6 packs... And I don't expect I'll have any issue, so I'll likely order more soon.
