Good To Go,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kingston Technology 64 GB USB 2.0 DataTraveler SE9H Flash Drive with Metal Casing (Personal Computers)
I bought the Kingston Technology 64GB USB 2.0 DataTraveler in the champaigne coloured metal casing. By today's standards (January 2013) 64GB is huge. My previous USB stick was one of the iamakey types with 16GB (also recommended). When you are looking for a new USB stick, there are 3 things to consider; capacity, speed, and physical form. Capacity and speed have been reduced by commoditization - there are lots of sticks on offer with any common combination of capacity and speed. So the differentiator is physical form.
Normally I like to hang my USB stick from a keyring attached to my belt - along with house and car keys. This means that it is exposed to temperatures, shock and vibration, and risk of loss. Buying a USB stick with a metal case looks nice, and is rugged. With a metal cased USB stick the hole is usually in the case and once it is on a key-ring it is safe. Look again at all the plastic USB sticks. The rings and clips are very flimsy. You might get lucky and not lose the stick WHEN the clip or ring breaks - but the clip or ring WILL break.
The datatraveler came with NO installed software or rubbish from the manufacturer. It was formatted and completely clean. (Normally I format them myself to obiterate the unwanted files.)
The Kingston DataTraveler is as attractive in real life as it looks on the page. It is small, sleek, and under-stated. Your data won't get lost, you will have lots of space and the speed of USB 2.0. And, oh, it is good value for money too.

USB 2.0 just doesn't cut it these days.

So you don't think that RELIABILITY is one of the main factors?

Reliability is down to the brand.
