Rated 5 out of 5 by from PO BOX Web site was the most difficult online purchase ever. The site used google address to make my purchase next to impossable, as it changed my correct address to anothrr zip code or state. I spent less time finding items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DataTraveler Max USB-A / 1TB Flashdrive This is my 4th and largest capacity DataTraveler. A universe in my pocket! Great products!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well. Very fast transfer rate. First time I copied something I thought it had not worked as I didn't get a graphic display for progress...not enough time had passed for it to display!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Immediately Corrupted I bought this flash drive and started moving files from my PC to it as a backup. Very shortly into this process the drive started having issues with duplicate files and ended up freezing up my whole computer. After it was unfrozen I lost access to the drive. It would show up in my devices as "unspecified" but there was nothing I could do to access the drive even after troubleshooting. I hope it starts randomly working one day but until then I can't recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well Bought to use as EVGA storage for my Xbox One. No problems installing it AMD downloading games to it. Games are playing very well from the drive! The casing is a little thick and I had to use the back USB port instead of the side port.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works good! Works perfectly with both of my laptops! I needed an adapter for my older one, but that’s not Kingston’s fault; plenty of storage space too

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works but not like I wanted it to. All and all the drive is ok. There are a couple things I don't care for. 1. the loop where you can add a key chain ring to it is flimsy, I wouldn't trust it not to break. 2. The base of the unit is to wide to hook to my cell phone with the case on it. The drive I lost ( Not a Kingston) because of the flimsy plastic place for the key chain ring was small enough to connect to my phone without removing the case. I bought it to keep on my person at all times but I have decided to put it in the puter bag and keep looking for a suitable drive.
