excellent thumbdrive 9/1/2015
This is an excellent thumb drive. It has lasted me for years and is still going strong. The two-way swivel is good but I would have preferred a one sided swivel cover that "snaps" in place. And given its small size, having the slower USB 2.0 is not a problem.
Good Value for the Price 7/14/2014
John from Pensacola, FL
That's a lot of storage for a small price, after the discount was applied. Case seems to be very solid, so I doubt it will be hurt from being jostled around in a briefcase or pocket. USB connector seems solidly built, too. Good value for the dollar. Happy with my purchase.
Good performing pen drive 11/27/2013
GaryDe from Deltona, Florida USA
As the prices continue to drop, I find myself using these things more and more to store movies, mp3s and important data I like to keep mobile. Kingston has always been a reliable brand and works with everything. I'm using this one to store old time radio shows which I play on a cheap AM/FM radio that has a usb pen drive slot. The Kingston works great!
16Gb Budget Thumb Drive 7/30/2013
Not super fast but this surely a good price for brand name thumb drive.
Receive very fast in the mail, so easy to use and a ton of storage.
Amazing Deal 3/3/2013
What Can I say? It's a memory card that works. I am using it in a video doorbell system that records users that ring the bell. Card works fine in this application although it may not be sutable for higher speed application like digital cameras where a high speed card would be better.
Always happy with Kingston! 1/2/2013
Have bought a lot of Kingston flash drives over the year and have never been disappointed.

Another Excellent Kingston Flash Drive 12/17/2012
Steve from Irvine, CA
This 16 gig replaces my 8 gig that was getting full. The drive is smaller (although not one of the really tiny ones) and works flawlessly. As most drives it is a simple plug and play. I have been using Kingston drives for many years and have never had a problem!
Slow, but works 12/7/2012
Works nice 11/24/2012
I waited to actually give it a fair test period. It has not not given either of them an ounce of problem. It is very reliable and data transfer speed is quick. My wife had a PNY, and it was OK, but it does not compare to the Kingston. The only drawback is the hole in the end, it is very tiny. I had to purchase a very thin key ring to put on it so they could attach a strap to it.
Good product 11/12/2012
Works as expected. It's nice to have a swivel cap, never have to worry about losing it again!
Great product...works like chime 11/3/2012
Manoj from Lutherville, MD
Works like chime. I needed this for large files when my 8 GB did not have enough space for files like 700 pages of few E-books. Great product and free shipping one of the best combinations anyone could have…go buy.com
Good quality. Good price. 10/29/2012
I have about 10 of these now that I have purchased over the past few years. This style of Kingston flash drives has worked best for me. I have have several other brands or models fail even while taking care to eject it correctly. Will definitely buy again.
fast dependable DataTraveler 10/11/2012
I like this Kingston DataTraveler so much I purchased two more for other file categories. The ultra compact size and the flexible cover that protects the USB "head" are great features. I highly recommend it.

THESE16 GB STICKS ARE GREAT. GOOD QUALITY EASY TO RE-TRACK...
Nice USB Stick 6/28/2012
Joe from Washington DC
Small. Seriously small. The memory housing is like the size of two Pez candies. Hole in the body (NOT the cap... another PRO) that will allow you to place a corded tether to attach the drive to your keys (or for some other similar need). * The cap fits on tightly (you can hear the clicking sound); this has always been a benefit of Kingston drives. * The transfer speed seems decent for a small drive. I haven't played around with this much, yet, as I just received it, today. CONS: * A corded tether does not come included with the drive even though there is a hole for one. I hate it when USB manufacturers don't include a tether for a drive that obviously has a place for one.
Another awesome one, have 3 of them now in different color and size
This product is excellent. I like the unique design. Works well. it transfers data fast. I use it daily to transfer from desktop to laptop and it gets the job done quickly. I own several flash drives, but this is one of the best flash drives i have had in a while. great value & performance. Buy.com consistently has the lowest prices on flash memory and it's the website
Nice USB Stick 6/11/2012
Joe from Washington DC
I love this USB Stick. 5 STARS !!!! I've owned several flash drives by Kingston (bought from buy.com). They've all performed impeccably. This particular one has additional organizational S/W which might prove useful to less computer savvy customers. Personally, I don't have much use for it although the interface is kinda neat. Buy.com consistently has the lowest prices on flash memory and it's the website I look to first for similar needs. The quality has been superbly reliable. No complaints so far.

Mike from Stafford, Va
Have purchased this brand in past, and have not had any issues. Fits nicely in pocket and gives quick access to files that I need.
Thumb Drive !!! 5/16/2012
I bought this for my wife and grandson 5 months ago, I waited to actually give it a fair test period. It has not not given either of them an ounce of problem. It is very reliable and data transfer speed is quick. My wife had a PNY, and it was OK, but it does not compare to the Kingston.
Great product 5/16/2012
Great Prodcut. No cap to lose - Good Design. I wish the price were a little lower. I would certainly recommend the product for the price - but lower would be better. Next up is the 32gb that I have wanted for a long time. It is amazing how the form factor is the same on the 16gb and the 32gb. I hope they can make it even thinner.
good one 5/11/2012
This Kingston DataTraveler DT101 Gen2 32GB USB flash drive has a very nice compact design. It is about the same size as the SanDisk Cruzer Micro (with the USB port retracted). See the size comparison picture I uploaded to Customer Images section. What cannot be seen from the picture is that the Kingston drive is slightly thicker. That makes it impossible to insert two Kingston flash drives into two adjacent USB ports, whereas two Sandisk drives can be stacked one on top of another.
reliable thumb drive 4/20/2012
nice size, good storage, very stable. =)
does the job 6/7/2011
Bob from Dudley, Mass.
great value & performance, ease of use, great to hold those large photo files on your PC as a backup stored in case of issues, had an 8 GB usb flash drive that did not hold all my stuff...this one at 16 GB allows me to back-up all my files dear to me and store it in a fireproff safe in case of....whatever happens, no noise on shaking the drive as other customer stated, would recomend it to friends at this price, buying another for my daughter so she can back-up her files also. Kingston flash drives have great reviews, have never heard any complaints or issues with their products and would recomend them to anyone in need of keeping their data safe and portable. Take your phots with you to show friends and relitaves on their PC...guess the photo albums of the past are gone and now we can find and share those moments without the big old dusty book search. Free shipping is nice too !!!!
Great Product 4/11/2011
Rebecca from Corpus Christi, Tx
Bought to store all my family photos on, needless to say i filled it up in 10 mins...lol...will have to purchase another one soon! Highly recommend for the price.
Kingston 16GB Flash Drive 1/18/2011
Tyler from Warsaw, IN
This is a great product to buy! I have had several flash drives in the past and this is the fastest for loading files and videos. I would buy this again if I needed.
My Flash drive does not make any noise when shaking it....maybe the one review was a mishandled prodct. No loose pieces here.
Great product, Great price 1/17/2011
Mike from Glen Oaks, NY
As advertised, works great, extremely easy to use. My 4 GB was getting 3/4 full so I wanted a larger drive, and this fit the bill to a tee! Would definately recommend to anyone.

Unbeatable price and product 12/25/2010
A customer from Manasquan, NJ
Cheapest price ever compared to anything similar and works well
Awsome Deal for the Price 11/29/2010
Kay from Farmington Hills, Michigan
Drive performs really nicely and gives a transfer write rate of around 8-12Mbps which is much better than other drives of 5-8Mbps.
Only bad thing is that if you shake the drive you can hear the loose inside plastic, Not that it would affect the performance or reliability of the drive. So giving it a 4 for overall satisfaction.
For the price Kingston cannot be beat. 11/28/2010
Dave from Sorrento
I use many flash drives for my daily workload and have come to know that Kingston makes reliable flash drives. The 5 year warranty and unlimited tech support shows that Kingston backs up their products. urDrive is a pretty neet feature on the G2 drives. Organization is required when using a flash drive for file transfers and urDrive helps to do just that. I wouldn't buy any other brand of flash drive and you shouldn't either.
Got a real steal! 11/28/2010
A customer from Dalton, Ohio
I got this flash drive when it was on sale with free shipping for $20. What a great deal at this time! Love this device, sturdy and well made. Recommend it!
It's a good USB thumb drive. 11/27/2010
Alan D. from Boston, MA
There's not much to say... I've been very happy with the Kingston DataTravelers; we bought a few at work and they're able to USB-boot our Dell machines, which has come in very handy (other USB thumb drives couldn't). Other than that? They're just good quality thumb drives...

Great product 11/11/2010
Frank from wash, DC
If you are looking a for capless drive with the coolest Art Deco design, great capacity, durable case, perfect dimensions, and works with Windows 7, Mac OS, this is for you. It is small yet wide enough not to be difficult to insert or remove. It has a very nice LED to indicate use. The swing shield is aluminium that has a small loop for lanyard attachment or key ring. Case is hard plastic with a solid feel. The only thing I would improve on is make the shield lock in place. The access times could be faster, writes about 5 MBps and reads around 17 MBps reads for files greater than 64 MB using HDtest software. While this is not great impressive, I have noticed that the actual file transfers are faster according to windows 7 and approach 10 MBps writes. All I can say it was a great buy for me.
