          We are using these occasionally to transfer large files to customers. When the customer's bandwidth can not handle GB sized zip archives.

            Comments about Kingston 16GB DataTraveler Elite 3.0:

            I used this to move data from a 2007 PC running Ubuntu Linux to a Mac running Lion. It transferred 4GB very rapidly. Way faster up/downloads than my old 2.0 USB thumbdrive, even though I only have USB 2.0 slots in my computers. No extra software or drivers required. The click action seems pretty good but it's brand new so it's hard to say how it'll wear. I chose to spend a little more for speed and I feel like I got value for the extra cash.
