In general, Kingston has been a brand I trust and reliably purchase. That continues to hold true with this USB drive. The read and write speeds of this drive are solid; nothing exceptional, but perfectly acceptable for most people. The drive is quite small, which most people, I think, will appreciate. At 32GB this drive is what I would consider an entry level USB drive; you certainly shouldn't buy a drive with less memory than that nowadays. It is great for moving document and spreadsheet files between work and home or to take out on meetings or travel, but you aren't going to use it as a primary backup for music or photos given its storage capacity. The cost of this also was affordable and, I felt, at a good price point for the amount of memory you get.
The only thing I didn't care for with this product is the spinning enclose that you flip around to cover the USB plug. The enclosure is very loose so it never stays in place. Basically there is no real protection for the USB plug because you never know where the enclosure will be; half the time when I take it out it is flipped sideways, protecting neither end of the device. This ultimately is a fairly minor annoyance for me, as I have a small carry case for USBs, but it is something to be aware of.
Overall this is a nice, compact USB drive that I have used for several years and plan to keep on using. It is a pretty good choice for an entry level USB drive.
But the flash drive did what it was supposed to do. It has a swivel design which goes over the USB portion of the flash drive. Nice feature, especially when traveling with this flash drive. I wish the 32 GB one came in a different color than purple. I bought this over two years ago and it's worked very well during that time.
Keep in mind that this flash drive only has USB 2.0 capability. I don't use it anymore because I've recently purchased another flash drive which has USB 3.0 capability. This makes the transferring of files so much faster. But if you do end up purchasing this flash drive, I'd definitely stand by it. It lasted me a very long time without any issues.
NOTE: As of October 2013, the 32 gb and 64 gb versions of this product are 25% less expensive per gigabyte than the 16 gb one that is the subject of this review, so you might want to consider buying one of those instead.
