For the guy who posted above, there is no lanyard included with this flash drive.

I got this a couple days ago. Looking for something that could hold large files to let me switch from a laptop to desktop and back more easily (no more toting a whole external hard drive back and forth).

Other than cost (and this seems to be a good bargain), my other issue when looking at flash drives is speed (also I didn't want any of that U3 crud). I transferred a 490 MB file to the flash drive in just about 3 minutes. That's more than fast enough for me.

The flash drive has turned out to be a silver lining too. After I found out I would not be able to install Linux on my desktop, I found that I can actually install various Linux distros to the flash drive and boot from it instead (search for pen drive linux), with plenty of space still to spare.

To be fair, I did not purchase these particular items from Amazon, but rather through the university where I work, for my department. But they were all brand new Kingston Data Traveler 2GB in the original individual hard plastic packaging. I noticed that some of the other readers who purchased several of these items commented on the terrible failure rate, and thought I'd throw in more data. The 28 that do work are great, but the odds of getting a good one are absolutely unacceptable IMHO.

I've been using a Kingston 2 GB Data Traveler Flash Drive (formatted for Mac) for months now and haven't had a single problem with one minor exception. Unlike 1 GB drives that can be plugged into the keyboard USB port, the 2 GB drive has to be connected directly to the computer (desktop or laptop) or an A/C powered USB hub. In addition to being 100% reliable, the drive is fast, very small and durable. I carry it around in my change pocket. I use the Data Traveler to not only backup the hundreds of files (but not pictures or tunes) on my home and office computers but to make backups of the home computer on the office computer and vice versa. Having watched too many customers (I'm in the computer business) cry the blues after learning that recovering valuable data lost due to fires, theft, hardware crashes, and viruses is often impossible or can cost thousands of dollars I'm convinced that it's insane to not make regular backups. Especially when it's so convenient and inexpensive.

I have about a half dozen "thumbdrives" (Lexar and SanDisk) the largest of which is a half gigabyte (512MB).

I found this device is slightly slower than some other of my thumbdrives, using large (10MB+) files in the tests. But, given the large storage capacity, the price is very compelling.

I highly recommend this product.

What's to say about it. It works, great size, and one of the more competitively priced ones at the time. 2 gigs of storage for this price is about as good as it gets.

This huge set of customer reviews suprised me. Whomever at Amazon did this should be fired! All Kingston USB Flash reviews are lumped
together here and placed under the much larger 32GB drive ads. BEWARE. There are many complaints about 16GB and larger capacity Kingston
USB drives being VERY slow. Do not buy 32GB or larger Kingston. Your DVD burner is much faster!!

Extremely unreliable. Kingston, What happened to you? I believe that manufacturers are having problems with the new 32GB thumb drives sizes. This is the 2nd one of this model that I had to return due to unreliability and flakiness. Luckily, Amazon has a decent return policy. This brand of drive mounted approx 15% of the time in my usage of two of these. Often inexplicably mounted as 'Read Only'. Sometimes mysteriously showed up as a 1TB or 2TB drive, crazily inaccurate. Multiple reformats never improved reliability. I am a computer tech, tested on many computers, confirmed its extremely flakiness under many conditions. I am not making any mistakes, this is expert observation. The average non tech user just wants to plug in a thumb drive and have it work.

It is amazing how much the prices have fallen on these portable USB thumb drives. It is also amazing at how much some manufacturers are still charging for their models which have only a fraction of the drive space compared to the Data Traveler. I use an intel Mac Pro and when I plugged in this new device it was instantly recognized by OS X and the icon appeared on the desktop. The very first thing I tried was to copy a 550MB file to the device and it would not work. I canceled the copy operation and immediately went into Disk Utility and repartitioned the device to OS X Journaled. The device comes from the manufacturer formated in MS DOS 16 bit. Once I repartitioned to OS X Journaled, the file copied over beautifully with no problems. So, if you are a Mac user, be aware of this fix as you may have to implement it. The other thing to note is that it is a bit slow in copying files. You can copy to the device relatively fast, but when copying off the device to another hard drive, it seems to take quite a bit longer. It took over 11 minutes to copy a 550MB file from the device to another desktop Mac. That's pretty slow, but for the price and the size of the storage capacity, I am not complaining.
