It's a little gem!,
This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 16GB USB Drive - Black (Personal Computers)I am moving to a new computer soon and wanted to park a copy of My Documents and Favourites out of harm's way. I read the reviews kindly left about this drive by other people, for which many thanks! I noticed the advice about uninstalling UR Drive and /or deleting superfluous software.
I am somewhat nervous of mechanical devices, but it was recognized instantly and became "Ur Drive F". I opened it and wondered what possible harm can happen if I right-click on it. I got "format" among other options. Left-clicking that, I got a stern message that should I proceed I would be deleting a lot of software.
"Really?!" said I, rather pleasantly surprised, and proceeded. Now it appears as KINGSTON DRIVE F, performs immaculately, and when I click "eject" it becomes "a removable disk". Perfect!
If I may be allowed to contribute a slightly frivolous point with a serious intent: like many other contributors before me, I noticed how very TINY this USB Drive is - on my desk it could and would easily disappear without trace caught in some papers, as to what will become of it mixed with a bunch of keys at the bottom of my handbag, I dread to think.
Staring at it with my Art @ Design hat on, I saw that it looks just like a stylish piece of modern jewellry, i.e. a pendant. So I got one of those black silk cords people use for handmade pendants these days, removed one end of the simple clasp, threaded the black silk cord through the little ear (you have to encourage it a bit, but if I can do it, you can do it), replaced the clasp end and TA-DA! Firstly, with that cord on, there is no way it gets lost on my desk. Secondly, it looks very Matrix with a black T-shirt or polo neck. Now I am waiting for the first techie lad who says, "Hey, lady, do you know what that thing is?" In Mid-Wales we look forward to simple joys...

Mozzie and Nimble fingers, you may be amused to know that the exact replica of this stick, executed in silver, enamel, mother of pearl and marcasite, and described as "geometric inlaid brooch echoing the work of French jeweller Georges Fouquet" has just gone on sale at £59.99. I knew I should have copyrighted that idea...

No no...don't pull the review!! Mr Dermott is obviously trying to be funny...ha ha ha...way to go, Kev..ha ha ha! OK, everyone happy now?
Then again...if the designer's name is truly Fouquet, there's a ton of jokes I could make up with that...but perhaps best left for another time and place. Oh, and back to the ORIGINAL subject...pen works 100% fine..happy customer.:)

I am glad you like the KINGSTON memory stick, Mozzie, I am about to buy more at this price.
But mostly thanks for your support, I saw your page now and am glad of it: 2 grandboys to amuse, I shall check all your kid's books reviews. A couple of sons brought up on good old classics and without computers, how did we manage?!

These reviews seem to be being used for both the 16GB and 8GB memory sticks. This is quite misleading asa there cannot possibly be identical reviews for both items. How is one supposed to differentiate between the two products when deciding which one to purchase?

Thank you, Tommy! I do try to write with a hint of humour while hopefully making a useful comment, and I did buy another one of these sticks to store some files I consider essential with my passport and my will. Some people liked my comment on how to camouflage a security box: even friends tell me it's a good idea! I have a pile of reviews pending, but so busy getting to grips with my new 6-core Phenom II 3.3 Black Edition and the 16G RAM supporting Motherboard. All kinds of probs with the 64bit system!
