I bought this Kingston flashdrive mainly because I wanted a well-respected brand. It works just fine and is sturdy and well made, which is all you can really ask from a flashdrive. I like the retro 1960s Soviet-style design. From a practical point of view it is easy to insert and remove in USB sockets, thanks to ribbed side grips. Getting the protective cap off is not always easy as it is smooth, slippery and tapers away, so is hard to grip sometimes. And the drive won't attach to a normal keyring because the slot provided is too narrow. How difficult can it be to consider these basic things at the design stage?? But these are very minor niggles indeed. It's not obvious from the photos or the description, but there is a flashing transmit/receive light hidden under the Kingston logo. Overall I'm very pleased with this product. Quality at a reasonable price.
