What customers say about "Features"
Kingston DataTraveler 100 4 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • Great capless design, you don't need to worry about losing any parts.
  • This flash drive is pretty fast and compatible across platforms.
  • Plug and play ready. Simple connect it to PC or whatever you need.
  • It performs well, meaning fast. Not difficult to retract but you have to be gentle and not force.
  • The switch that extends the USB flash drive is tough to slide. It's easy to break a nail if you aren't careful.
Kingston DataTraveler 50 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
  • This drive is faster than most of my other flash drives.
  • Speeds are phenomenal as I'm not used to having 3.0 drives.
  • I don't need to use it very often but the drive is screaming fast.
  • This unit have proven to be very reliable, and the read/write speeds are certainly adequate for everyday use.
  • If you move large files like 3 or 4 GB it starts out fast and gets slower and slower near the end.
