- Kingston DataTraveler
I own many different types of flashdrives with varying capacities. The Kingston is my choice for transporting data because of its speed. Though it might not be important to others, I tire of waiting for other devices to disconnect safely. This device does not present such an issue because it connects and disconnects rapidly on the first try every time. Though it does not come with preinstalled security software to prevent unauthorized access to the drive, such software is readily available which works flawlessly with the drive. I give this drive a "thumbs up" rating!...more info
- Never got the product so can not rate this item
My product was lost in the mail. So I just got my money back, the company was very quick and easy to contact about getting my money back. Maybe better luck next time with the USPS. ...more info
- Just what I Needed
Couldn't be more satisfied. Keeps my backup documents safe and sound and nowhere near my computer....more info
- All washed up!
Have to give kudos to Kingston for this drive. I forgot it in my pants pocket before doing my laundry. It went through a full wash and spin cycle and about 20 minutes in the dryer on high heat before I heard it rattling around. Figured the 3000 or so pictures on it were gone for good, but popped it in the PC and everything worked fine. And my photos were so soft and fluffy! Honestly though no complaints here. Great drive....more info
- 16Gigs is HUGE
I got this to transfer files between computers and it works great. It is very fast and works on my PC at home and the Mac at school. Most people I meet are jealous of my 16Gig stick. All the womens think its so huge o.0...more info
- I'm lovin' it
My primary use is a Startup flash drive. I am a computer tech and I can't tell you how much easier it makes my job. I have a few of them, different sizes for different purposes....more info
- Upgrade to 16GB
Owned a 8GB drive and upgraded to 16GB. Very happy with the performance and the extra space. ...more info
- Fast, robust, and high capacity!
Hey, not much more to say than what I said. Solid case construction, fast data transfer speeds, and all in all a great product from a trusted company.
- Kingston 16gb DataTraveler
Not too much to say as it is what is, a USB 2.0 flash drive. It works great, as do most other Kingston memory products I have used. Two things I would change (read - things I didn't like):
1)The LED that lets you know when the drive is in use is barely visible (partly from poor placement, and partly from being quite dim,) and only flashes when data is being transferred. It would be nice if the LED had a steady slow flash rate to acknowledge that is is connected to the computer...just in case you are having some sort of computer issue and need verification that it is connected (or was somehow disconnected,) then when transferring data it would switch to a rapid flash rate.
2) It would've been nice if the pocket in the top of the drive for attaching a lanyard (which was not included) were deeper. I happen to have a lanyard laying around from another drive and I struggled threading it through the pocket. A deeper pocket would've made the action much simpler.
Outside of these two things, I believe it to be an excellent product that I should have in service for many years. You can't go wrong with Kingston products!...more info

- Great price. Small device. Large storage space.
Great product. No tax and no shipping charges were a plus from Amazon.com. Got the Kingston flash drive on time, in a tiny package. Just to inform anyone else wanting to purchase this product, it lists 16 GB, but its actually 15 GB. But that goes for all flash drives, you never really get the full amount. Also, it is in FAT32 format, so if you are using XP and up, I would recommend formatting the drive to NTFS to make it faster.
Overall, great product, small form factor, no need to look for a missing cap, and it has a green flash indicator to inform that it is being used....more info
- Nice flash drive, and does the job
I bought this 16 gig flash drive to add capacity as the 8 gig flash drive I already had didn't hold enough data.
I can load 5-6 full-length movies on it to watch with my ASUS Eee PC 900 notebook during my 3? hour dialysis sessions. I also took it along and watched movies during my recent 6? hour flight to Las Vegas....more info
- lots of space and reliable
I've had great experience with past Kingston products and this is no exception! Plenty of space to transfer your files and it works perfectly! ...more info
- Amazon does it again......
Ordered, received, and utilized the Kingston fkash drive, without a hitch. Amazon is amazin. Have never had a bad experience with them. Will, no doubt, be purchasing from them again in the near future....more info
- Data Traveler Review
The data traveler works as expected.

- Affordable but quality jump / flash / thumb drive
This is not a complex item to review. It's the most affordable 16 GB flash memory drive on amazon.com right now and has had excellent compatibiltiy on Windows 2000 and up systems that I use. Do yourself a favor and go portable with all of your data on this drive...after you encrypt with truecrypt.org of course!...more info
- Very Impressed.
Its a great product that has plenty of storage. I have been using it for about a month now and have no issues with it. Highly recommend it for the price....more info
I bought this memory to use with my new Kenwood car stereo receiver with a usb input. I had no trouble transferring music to it at all. My stereo "reads" the flash memory and switches between tracks very fast,faster than a commercial cd. I havn't as of yet experienced any data loss. My only complaint is that this isn't 16gb. Brand new out of the package,my pc shows it at 15gb. I can understand some storage space being used for formatting purposes etc;but an entire gb?My MP3 player uses less space for its firmwire! ...more info

- Perfect solution for backing up important files
The Kingston 16 GB flash drive (less than $30) is the ideal solution, at least for me, for backing up my real important files. Since I am retired I really don't have anyplace to keep backup files in a separate location.
So I just update the files on the 16 GB Kingston every so often and keep it in a small insulated toolkit bag in the glove compartment on my car....more info
- Good price and good product
Pro: Good Product and solid construct with its 16 g
con: NONE...more info
- This seller is a thief
Did not receive the flash drive and contacted the seller few times without any luck. I think Amazon should take action against this seller to keep its reputaion....more info
- Great product for a great price
Got the flashdrive, which hasn't crashed on me yet and isn't loaded with a bunch of software, for a great price. No complaints....more info
- Great little worker
I bought this product to do some major transferring between 2 laptops. Hasn't failed me yet. The speed is pretty decent but not the best for a Kingston product.
My only criticism is that the casing looks flaky. I feel like I am going to break it if it falls. On the other hand i did drop if a few times and it still works great.
- Movility + big storage = A must to have
If you have large media files and programs, consider buying this product, it is also great if you need a quick back up to format your computer if you don't have a partition in your hard drive. I have also two computers in my home with wireless network, but if you can't wait too long and you must move large files (+ 2GB) between them, moving it with this flash drive will be quicker, as it is USB 2.0).
I highly recommend it....more info
- 16 GB Kingston Traveler Flash Drive
I'm very satisfied with the flash drive. It was offered for a good price and delivered promptly....more info
- DataTraveler a worthwhile purchase
The Kingston DataTraveler 16 GB USB Flash Drive serves now as my primary backup medium and has replaced earlier similar drives of lesser capacity which I've passed on to others. The unique feature of this drive is the pop-out USB connector but this is somewhat of a weakness only because it's activated by a slider that is difficult for me to extend and contract.
I've always had a flash drive with a cap and the caps are a nuisance. The DataTraveler solved that problem and with a slight bit of manufacturing rework I'm sure Kingston could get that slider to work a bit easier.
If you're data storage needs are within the range of the flash drive capacity, these little gadgets make for a much easier storage medium than CDs. I'll carry all my data, virtual machines, utilities on this big (capacity) little (form factor) drive....more info
