I bought this USB drive without any hesitation, because I've been using the older model for years and very happy with DataTraveler's design/quality/performance/durability. But I was wrong. The person who designed this 3rd generation Kingston DataTraveler is an idiot. Here are the reasons:

1. Thicker than the older model, which means when it is plugged into a USB port on my ThinkPad, the other adjacent USB port on top is unusable, unless the other USB device has a very thin connector.
2. Slippery cap. The design of the cap, slippery finishing and the elliptic curve make it very hard to hold.
3. The cap can't stay on the rear end of the drive. It means that sooner or later I will lose the cap and my 1-year old baby has a better chance to swallow it.
4. The lanyard hole on the rear end is way too small. Even the thinnest keychain ring has no way to go through it.
5. The drive doesn't have a light indicator during active data transfer.
6. The metal USB connector has some room to nudge around within the two pieces of plastic shells. Cheap crappy feeling. A tiny amount of liquid can penetrate into it.

My older model of a 4G has no any problem I listed above and is still working nicely. It even survived in washing machine once I forgot to take it out from my pants while doing laundry. Very impressive that the designer can make the latest generation of DataTraveler so bad!!!

Bottom-Line: I couldn't ask for a better portable memory product than the "DataTranveler 8GB 2.0 G3 Flash Drive."

It has become a habit for me to carry at least one USB memory stick in my laptop backpack along with my laptop, both personal and business. I used to use Lexar Media USB Jump-Drive's exclusively, but my memory requirement quickly out-paced their ability to introduce new larger capacity memory sticks. So last year I switched to the Kingston DataTraveler 4GB 2.0 Flash Drive I purchased at Buy.com for a reasonable price, plus it had a rebate offer.

But, when my Windows 7 64-bit desktop recent show signs of running out of the 4GB of Ram I had installed, instead of purchasing more SDRAM I decided to take advantage of the Operating System's (OS) Ready Boost Technology and purchased Kingston "DataTranveler 8GB 2.0 Generation 3 (G3) Flash Drive" for a fraction of the cost of (4) more sticks of SDRAM.

Then Along Came an Even Smaller Chip:

Computer technology seems to move at a pace designed to keep us, the end user, always wanting for the latest and greatest, whether we need it or not. Every once in a while thought, there comes a product that revolutionizes the way we compute and share information. Such was the case with the introduction of CD/RW technology, and so it is with the advent of USB flash memory devices.

For the uninitiated, USB flash memory devices are small ultra-portable devices capable of storing from 32MB to a now astounding 64.0GB of memory storage in a single, very portable device. All are designed to transfer data via an available USB port; Note: though most of the older flash drives are backwards compatible with versions 1.1, 1.2, USB, the new devices for the most part are not.

Before I order this. Some reviewer said it is very slow, 5 MB/s write speed.
However, I test it by my own.It turns out to be a fast enough USD flash drive. It can reach 10 MB/s writing speed on my laptop.

I use these to back up items on my computer. It has enough storage to put like files on but not too large to make finding files difficult. I use it to back up photos for example and can put all from a particular time period or event together.

These are fantastic flash drives, but watch out for counterfeit ones; they are packaged and look just like real ones, but don't work as well.

Sometimes even the vendors don't know they are selling counterfeit stuff. (...or at least they swear that they didn't know, and it came straight from Kingston...) :-/

Google "Kinsgston flash verifier" once you get them, enter the info from the package, and you'll get an email whether they are fake or not.

The real ones are excellent!

so far this has been a good thumbdrive as I expected. It's cutely retro looking. The only reason I'm rating it down a star is because I wish either the cap was attached or was retractable- I find the only way to break these things is if the usb-part gets bent from when you lose your cap ;)
i looked around, this was the cheapest 8gig when including shipping,

I purchased two of these 8gb flash drives to use for flashing the firmware on my electronic devices and moving files easier across different computers in my home. The flash drives came in a pretty easy to open package that anyone could open with their hands unlike some of the clam shell packages that require knives or scissors to open. The USB flash drive itself is made out of plastic and has a very narrow key ring area that requires a separate key ring for each one of these that you own, this is because since the key ring area on the flash drive is so narrow the key ring wont let you add/remove any other items when you have this flash drive in the key ring. This is a little bit troublesome for some owners and could cause the key ring area of the flash drive to break in the future since it is made out of plastic after all and its very narrow. It would be nice if it came in different colors for people that own more then one so that they could be more easily distinguished from each other. Overall, these are the pros, cons, and my conclusion for this product:

Pros
-----------
- Cheap, I purchased two for $8 each.
- Average Transfer Speed
- Easy to use (plug and play)
- Easy to open packaging
- Brand is known for reliable budget memory (Kingston)

Cons
-----------
- Only comes in one color
- Narrow keyring area, I can see it breaking very easily in the future.
- Made out of plastic (not very durable)
- It did not come with a neck strap.
- No extra caps in case you lose the original cap.

Conclusion
-----------
For $8 each it was a good buy.
