There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
If you're reading this, you're probably wondering if this will work. It does. I received the message after the Xbox 360 formatted it. I've read reviews on other that they receive a message saying their flash drive is too slow for 360 specs or that the flash drives stop working. For the price and functionality...this model is right on. Almost perfect.
The only con to this flash drive is, as other reviews mention is that the swivel cover doesn't give much resistence and can swivel around with ease. Also...it doesn't really have a cover. Debris can easily be caught it in. If and when you get it, you'll see this for yourself.
However, with other flash drives that do have true covers...you might run into the problem that it won't go into the USB slots on the 360 given that it's frame is a little too thick.
The check list will end up as follows:
Check------Xbox 360 compatibility
Check------Fit in Xbox 360 slot
The end flips around to cover your usb from some damage. It doesn't really stand up to daily use, though, because when stuff shifts around in your bag the end can easily be flipped around to leave the usb vulnerable to being ground up against by calculators and pencils and other random junk in your bag. I had to jury rig a cover for it that won't move, basically by taping on a cover from an old usb that got lost except for the cover. It works, but it kind of ruins the point of the thing coming with a protective cover. And the problem with it not being protected is that if it gets dented it won't insert into the computer and won't work any more and you'll lose the whole semester of work, which is a huge catastrophic life ending event after hours of blood sweat and tears and skipping fun events to do those freaking essays in the first place. So I'm being really cautious about keeping this protected and I don't appreciate that it doesn't do that job effectively enough by itself.
However it loads pretty quickly on the computers and there isn't much lag time so that's useful. And it does hold all the files I need. I just wish that the design of the case was more protective.
I use the smaller drives for use with music in my car, but those 8 and 16GB drives hold backup data of everything from 10 years of email to sensitive data, and one 16GB drive hold all my prize high resolution photos.
While the 2010 drives were fast, these are amazing. Fifty 6mb photos will load to the drive in less than 40 seconds. Downloading to a computer is faster ... not that I need anything that fast. But it's amazing what one gets used to. I don't need the speed, but as someone who started with a dialup computer connection (and further back a computer with 186kb of memory!) I certainly appreciate speed.
Second, I happen to like the cap that can't get lost.
Third, I have never had a Kingston drive fail or fail to be read by a computer. True plug and play and with none of those annoying "New hardware found" although I did try to disable the message. (It worked for these and my camera, but still loves its notifications with other USB stuff.)
Last, even my oldest computer (of the 5 we have) recognizes the drives immediately (as does my car and one stereo), and I'm off and running. Mind you, I like my little Western Digital 250GB drive, but I prefer to store data/files/music/video/photos on different drives so that I never lose the last 12 years all in one shot.
My wife is also very comfortable with these little drives, and also stores different information on different drives. Funny. When we were back in the days of 286 computers, we would store everything on floppies and thought that was the cat's meow (old expressions die hard), but having gone to hard drives of 60GB to 250GB, neither of us has filled a drive let alone needed to compress one. So, these are the drives for us.
I do wish that Kingston would come out with more colors so that we could get used to one color for each set of files.
