      I only got these to share wedding photos. The fancy packaging seemed appropriate for an important even.
      Functionally, it is no better that a standard flash drive.

      About Me Casual User

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Large Capacity
      • Looks Good
      • Reliable Performance
      • Small Size
      • Sturdy Metal Case

      Cons

      • Comparatively Slow

      Best Uses

        Comments about Kingston 8.0GB DataTraveler GE9 Gold-Plated USB 2.0 Flash Drive:

        I love tuna fishing, I really do. And I like it even more when my kids are able to join me and share the fishing. When they return to their homes they take their share of the bounty along with the digital memories.

        The bounty goes home in a soft-sided cooler and the Gigabytes of digital memories travel in the appropriately named Kingston DataTraveler.

        There are a number of reasons to like this USB drive
        1. Small Size
        2. Sturdy Metal Case
        3. Looks good, in fact it looks like a piece of jewelry as far as my daughter is concerned.
        4. Great price
        5. Large Capacity for the price
        6. Free Shipping from B&H, got here in four days

        The only downside to this drive in my opinion is that it is relatively slow.
        When I compared it with a Sandisk 8GB USB Flash Drive, this drive took twice as long (12 minutes) to copy a 2.85 GB folder of Quicktime Movie Files from my computer.

        OK so it's no speed demon, however this limitation did not prevent me from buying two more of these great little storage devices as stocking stuffers.

        • Bad Usb Fitment
        • Super Slow Write

        Comments about Kingston 8.0GB DataTraveler GE9 Gold-Plated USB 2.0 Flash Drive:

        I purchased more than a few of these drives to serve as Windows install media.

        Before use, I ran ATTO benchmark to find what the best format value was for this size drive. 8192 bytes is more efficient for 2gb+ files.

        The write speed was a measly 4-6MB per second, the read speed was a sustained average 18MB/s

        It's super slow when writing, so if you're using this to transfer files constantly, look elsewhere. If you just need something faster than a cd for reading only, this is just enough.
