I know and trust the Kingston brand. Some reviewers complained that the USB 3.0 speeds of this drive are at best average. Some quote them as being 10 MBytes/sec write and 70 MBytes/sec read.
Upon receiving it, I did a complete write/read test with H2TestW, on a USB 3.0 port on my new HP Z230 workstation running Windows 7.
First, the entire disk capacity was verified (so, this is NOT one of those fake drives). Second, the speeds measured were 19.2 write and 116 read. This is serious speed for an inexpensive thumb drive.
I notice that some people gave this device less-than-stellar reviews, complaining of failure when they tried using it as a working disk drive (as opposed to a simple storage device). A $20 thumb drive is NOT an SSD ! And if you think that for $20 you can get yourself a hi-speed SSD-equivalent then you are bound to end up disappointed. This is an excellent storage device of huge capacity (mine is 64GB); think "super-CD" or "super-DVD". If you load it with music or video, you'll be able to stream off it at blazing speeds. But please don't try to make it do the work of a hard disk. Simple flash drives are not up to such abuse.
For example, I have a KDLINKS X1 Full-HD 1920*1080 dashboard camera. After a very hot summer and some 6-7 months' use the camera started acting up and spontaneously going dead on me. Turns out the micro SDHC card had gone bad. I replaced it and the camera was back to its original functionality; 6-7 months of constant hours-long hi-volume writing to the card and then deleting old files to rewrite over them managed to ruin the card. Don't expect any different if you're using this thumb drive as a working HDD.
As shown in the photo, one end has a red plastic loop, that facilitates handling or might be used to attach the drive to a key chain or lanyard.
A plastic cap on the business end must be removed to expose the connector. To help avoid losing it, the cap can be snapped onto the end with the red loop. Except: if you have anything else attached -- the keychain or lanyard, for instance -- the cap won't fit, and you have to be careful where you place it. If you don't plan on any such attachment, that won't be an issue.
Two other even more minor notes: when in use, the drive doesn't snap fully into place: there's a but of metal still exposed, and the drive wiggles around a bit on my computer. On the other hand, it seems to connect well, and I had no trouble transferring data. And this particular drive comes only with a red plastic loop (at least when I bought it through Amazon). Having the same size drive available in different colors would make identification easier: photos of the kids on the "red"drive, backups of love letters on the "blue," and so on. As it stands, different capacity drives have different colors. And with the number of old love letters I have...
UPDATE 1/1/2018 - Survived (with cap on) full wash cycle in the washing machine with no damage. Nice.
