I recently purchased a number of Kingston 16 GB Data Traveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drives. I take pictures for a church group and can share the photos with my friends. The price per drive is less than $4 each. Great value for the money. I would buy again.

I used this as a recovery media for a Windows 10 workstation. It worked perfectly, was fast enough for my applications, but the sliding cover does not work very smoothly. That feature seems functional, but not impressive. Overall a good value. For more intensive use, I’d prefer something with a more substantial USB cover mechanism.

Disappointed with this flash drive because of its size and speed. The drive’s case is so large that I can’t have it and another USB device plugged into my laptop (Macbook, 13 Late 2007) at the same time. I would assume anyone with horizontally aligned USB ports would experience the same problem. The drive appears slim enough on the top and bottom to fit with other devices on a machine with vertically aligned USB ports (e.g., desktop), although it might be a very tight fit. I haven’t tested the drive with USB 3.0 yet, but I’ve included the speed test results from USB 2.0 below: USB 2.0 Blackmagic Disk Speed Test (5 GB stress) Write: 6.0 MB/s Read: 36.0 MB/s Overall, the drive feels quite cheap. While the sliding design is convenient, the excessive size and bulk of the case make this flash drive a major hassel to use. I recommend spending a bit more money to get a flash drive with a slimmer, sleeker case and better speed. I will update this review when I test the drive with USB 3.0.

I just got it to install windows 10 on my PC and it did it’s job very well. The materials feel high quality, and I like the way it clicks to close and open. The retracting mechanism feels sturdy enough for many years of use.

bought five to store short movies. The first two would not play back, kept stopping and distorting the images. It also receives info slow. stored documents OK. Did not try the other three. Never have had problems with other flash drives. have two new computers and three older, I doubt its my equipment.

This is a great moderate size USB thumb drive for storing photos for quick access and sharing files between people where a USB port is the common point of reference for multiple users.

Better through put but still a tad expensive.

For less than $4.50 this is the best USB flash drive I have been able to find anywhere. I was able to load a 25GB video file in 21 minutes. Hard to beat.
