Kingston DataTraveler 102
Released July, 2008
The Pros:Read/write speeds are good and consistent. Uses a basic plug-and-play interface, no software needed.
The Cons:Cap is hard to remove. Clear plastic case comes off far too easily. Doesn't mount consistently, needs to be reinserted a few times to connect (on both PC and Mac).
The Kingston DataTraveler 102 is a USB 2.0 flash drive available in 2GB - 32GB capacities and a range of colors including red, neon yellow, blue, white and black. This might be considered a step up from the DataTraveler 101, with double the maximum capacity and more color choices as well.

Speed remains the same as with that series however, with a max read speed of 10MB/sec and max write speed of 5MB/sec listed for the 16GB and 32GB versions. One feature that some might think is a step down from the 101 series is the fact that these drives a have a removeable cap which can be easily lost, while the 101's have an attached metal swivel plate to protect the USB connector. The Data Traveler 102 comes with a five year warranty and is compatible with Windows Vista and Mac OS X v.10.3.x+.

read/write speeds are good and consistent
uses a basic plug-and-play interface, no software needed
clear plastic case comes off far too easily
doesn't mount consistently, needs to be reinserted a few times to connect (on both PC and Mac)
connector is flimsy, if any pressure is applied while in someone's pocket it tends to bend down at an angle
drive itself is a little thick, difficult to fit when USB drives are stacked close to each other
