Takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

AdvantagesLoads of space, easy to spot, very robust

DisadvantagesNone Yet

"I've had my Kingston USB Flash Drive for about 6-8 months now. I first came across them through work. We were looking to buy a nice small, easy to use USB that wasn't too expensive nor had more space than we needed. In the end we bought two of these lovelies, one for myself and one for the other lady who worked in the office. The first thing that I love about them is that they have a handy little lid which snaps really easily onto the end of the ..." Read review

2GB in my pocket

AdvantagesEasy to use and small

DisadvantagesNone

"...particular one is made by Kingston and is called Data Traveler. So far 2GB has proved more than ample in terms of its capacity, however I am sure it will only be a matter of time before the applications become more memory intensive and making it necessary for a larger capacity. What does it look like? It is predominantly white with lime green highlights, when it is in use a greenish LED on the Data Traveler pulses. It is made of hard plastic ..." Read review

Great memories!

AdvantagesSimple, convenient and practical.

DisadvantagesSize may mean misplacing it.

"...would be lost without my Kingston Data Traveler flash drive pen! I am a student at university and this pen has been the most hard wearing out of the previous 2 i have owned. Capacities available: I have the 2GB version but this pen also comes in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities. However some of the device's capacity is used for formatting and so is not available for storage use. When a device such as this is manufactured, certain ..." Read review

Thanks for the memory

AdvantagesReliable

Disadvantagesnone

"...as with previous sticks from Kingston it had a lanyard to affix it to a keyring, which is a useful extra (so I can attach it to my house keys - that way I'll not leave the office without them, as has happened before!), attached to the USB stick rather than the cover for the USB adapter - one friend lost their memory stick because the lanyard affixed to the cover rather than the memory stick itself. Of course if you have a heavy bundle of keys, I would ..." Read review

Ready to go as soon as you plug it in

AdvantagesGood size, looks sleek, simple to use straight out of the pack

DisadvantagesLid may break or come off too easily

"...black). == Ease of use == The Kingston DataTraveler is incredibly simple to use: just take it out of the packaging (which is really the hardest part of getting to use the thing) and then plug it in, and it's ready to go. Simple as that. == General == Definitely grab one of these if you're after something to store files you need to move around a lot. On Amazon they're currently going for £5.49 new - somewhat odd, since the 4GB version is ..." Read review

A discrete memory...

AdvantagesCheap, small and with engaging design

DisadvantagesIf you put the cord you lose the top

"...euros. (*) Last but not least KINGSTON DTI/2GB has a '''5 years long''' warranty... even if I don't believe most of buyers would have the constancy and the will to go to an assistence point, if the item should break after a couple of years. Thanks for reading... and see you next time! _(*) Unieuro and Mediaworld are two big shops, almost like a mall, present in many towns in Italy, which sell this kind of item and a lot of other goods_ _review ..."

The 8GB Kingston Data Buddy!

AdvantagesLarge space, nice appearance, affordability, fast performance, pretty design...

DisadvantagesNo extra goodies or bundled software!

"...is absolutely NOTHING WHATSOEVER that Kingston blesses you with. Let alone a bundled software, you don't even get a lanyard/neckstrap with this thing! That's cruel! It would have been great if it was at least U3 smart. But, nonetheless, worry not flash drive owner! There are tonnes of portable softtwares that you can install and access from your USB drive. Common USB applications include:- Data Back up softwares (with one-click synchronization) Those ..." Read review

Does what it is meant to - though couple of small issues

AdvantagesCheap, light, robust

DisadvantagesSlowish, small capacity

"Overall this is a very good product. It is light, strong and has lasted me well for more than 3 years. The storage capacity is adequate, and excellent value for money at the current price, though of course you won't get exactly 2GB, but about 1.8GB instead. It loads up very easily in XP and Vista - all you have to do is plug it in the first time and wait about 2 minutes. Over 3 years, it has not failed me once, not lost any data and not taken any ..."

The portable+small drive with loads of space

AdvantagesMass Removable Storage @ High speeds

Disadvantagesnone

"The Kingston Data Traveler USB flash drive is one that lives up to its manufactures' reputation and name. This drive's sleek design, ease of usability and forgiving non-saftey removal features are just some of the advantages that this drive has. The 2 GB storage at around these prices alone can catch attention of anyone, exspecaily when seen with a brand name of Kingston which has a repuatation of producing high quality goods. The speed of this ..." Read review

Kingston 2GB

AdvantagesEasy to use

Disadvantagessecurity is minimal

"This is a very easy to use USB flash drive. The security functions that are seen on many of the latest USB pens aren't seen here. The device is quite handy and easy to use... would've been much nice had the cap been replaced by the sliding port like in most new versions since the cap is likely to be lost.. Due to the fact that the USB pen drive is very handy it can be lost.. due to this an identification system and a lock would have been very good ..." Read review

2GB Data Traveller

AdvantagesLooks great and very cheap

DisadvantagesSlow transfer rate and 'sticking' cap

"This USB memory stick is definately a good purchase. I bought mine from amzon in autumn 2006 for £19 from amazon. This was a bargain, but now they have dropped below £10, so are definately a bargain for anybody. The stick is small in size and has an attractive green design, with a matching green LED status light. The 2GB (actually 1.86GB) memory provides ample storage space. There is also an attractive metal faceplate on the reverse side. The package ..." Read review

2GB USB Stick GREAT item

AdvantagesCheap and realiable

DisadvantagesYou may find more capacity for just a little more money

"This portbale USB drive has got to be one of the most realiable ones i have used so far. I dont think it costs too much and unless you're really into media and music, you may find that filling up 2GB of memory may not be easy with just word files. I'de happily recoomend this product to anyone as it is absolutelly suberb. It hasnt let me down yet. However if you're working with media such as music, videos, webpages, high quality images etc. then ..." Read review

Tiny drive - Huge space!

AdvantagesVery cheap, reliable, well known brand, high transfer speeds

DisadvantagesCould be easy to lose due to small size.

"Kingston have a very good reputation for memory/flash based storage and this is no exception. The drive itslef is very small, probably about the length of your thumb and 5mm deep. So it is very portable and easy to carry around with you, just make sure you dont lose it! The drive has 2GB of storage space which is more than enough for the average user to back up all thier important data on. It has a USB 2.0 interface allowing you to transfer ..." Read review
