Warning! Kingston DataTraveler MiniSlim.... Kingston = greed

If you have had a Kingston DataTraveler Mini Slim you know what I'm talking about.
Here is an example of how greed takes precedence over customer satisfaction. If you take a look at it and you'll see the thin plastic parts around the contact area. These breaks down after a short period of use. Below electrical circuits become visible and memory will fail, I know.

Any reasonably intelligent person can figure that out, so one can only conclude that …. Kingston=greed

[Moved to off-topic forum (rather than deleting it). In legal terms, this post incites hate. In my terms, it's nonsense and definitely not true - mod Chris]

Looks like spam Should be in

Looks like spam Blum

Should be in the general forums. As far as greedy, my kingston flash drive has held up very well.

This thread is a hate crime!

It's illegal in Australia.

A Hate Crime?

Not really sure that this incites hate. The fact that it's poorly written doesn't really incite anything other than me ignoring it for the most part.

The OP was obviously angry with Kingston and just wanted to get it off of his/her chest. Smile

Any business = greed these

Any business = greed these days. I'd hardly say this post incites hate, maybe confusion though...I don't really know what the OP was trying to say, or why it's a hate crime...really, the whole thing makes 'bout as much sense as a screen door in a submarine

The rest of the story...

Since no info is given, would you be surprised if the drive ranted about came from eBay and was actually a counterfeit Kingston drive? I know I wouldn't be surprised in the least...
