The Kingston range isn’t the most attractive of flash drives, being all mainly white plastic body, but they do come in a choice of a few colourful stripes covering the name, I believe this is dependant on the storage capacity of the drive itself, with this 2GB version having a sort of light ‘greeny’ coloured stripe, although the actual stripe is just for looks and has nothing at all to do with performance.Using the unit is as easy as plugging in a kettle, simply insert it into one of the USB ports on your PC, its slightly rough, ragged looking sides are useful for gripping as you plug the flash drive in or out of the USB port. The flash drive should then be seen on you system as an external device, then it is a matter of either ’dragging’, ‘sending’ or ’copy or cut/paste your files to and from the unit…simple as that really.
This does depend entirely on the size of your files you want to store, but for example it can possibly hold around 500 average size songs, a couple of thousand good quality pictures or even a few good quality movies, it all really does depend on files sizes.
** What will this 2GB unit hold..?
** What is this installed ‘Securetraveler’ then..?Quote… “SecureTraveler is Kingston's DataTraveler tool, enabling you to create and access a password-protected secure area, called a Privacy Zone, on your DataTraveler”
Basically, it is a way to protect your files which you’ve put onto the flash drive by means of a chosen passwordNote: This may not work on certain systems, such as Windows 98 and Mac.
This good size flash drive fits nicely into my pocket without digging into my inner thigh when ever I walked along, which was a relief at times, and it save me the need to carry DVDs/Cds from system to system with that all important information.
I do tend to use this one mainly for personal work rather than work work, (if you know what I mean), and I find that it has so much storage space for what I need, which is important these days.
I do know that there are many flash drives out on the market with a larger storage capacity, with some being half the size of this Kingston device, but they are probably twice the price, but this particular device can be bought for around £15.00, although I have seen them going for a lot less depending on where you look.
What more can be said about this flash drive..? Well it’s a Kingston and for me they are king when it comes to flash drives.
