I hate the write speeds of this drive. Its pratcially unusable if you are not planning on using this as an usb drive who will only play music in your car. Just buy something else like a sandisk cruzer blade and save yourself some precious time.


Good

One of the worst write speeds I've ever seen. I have to tell clients that I won't accept Kingston USB sticks to be used in a project.
