Kingston DataTraveler (review and giveaway!)

Thank you to Kingston for sponsoring this review. Please click here to learn more about Kingston. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.

Do y'all remember when flash drives first came out? I thought they were the coolest things, and so much better than computer discs. In college, my flash drive was essential. I'd use it at home, at the library, while visiting friends, traveling, and at my boyfriend's house. It's incredible how such a small device can store so much data for you.

As time goes on, the technology for flash drives continues to improve, and Kingston Technology is at the forefront of the latest and greatest.

The Kingston DataTraveler is a flash drive that comes loaded with urDrive software. According to Kingston, "The urDrive software is a free, pre-loaded application for organizing and exploring apps, games, and music. It transforms Kingston USB drives into active storage devices-- rather than the “old school” device used only to store and transfer data."

I was impressed with the urDrive features. In the past, I'd just copy/paste files to my flashdrives, and then open them up through Windows Explorer, and slowly browse through all the junk I had on there to find the particular file I needed. 

But with the urDrive, it doesn't just store all your files -everything from documents, to photos, to music, or anything else- but it actually allows you to organize them and categorize them. So much nicer than just a jumble of data! 
Additionally, it comes with its own photo viewer for all your photo files, which is great for computers that don't have any photo viewing software. There's a built in MP3 player, so you're always able to listen to your music. It even comes with its own web browser so that you'll have all your favorites and bookmarks with you, no matter what computer you're using. And the urDrive is also preloaded with an app store, where you can access games and other cool apps. 

I know, it sounds a little complicated. But no worries, though! It's incredibly simple to use. Simply plug the drive into a USB port, and allow it to run. Click "get started," accept the terms and conditions, and check out the desktop that pops up! You'll never want to use another flash drive again! I really did like this flash drive, and all the awesome extras. 


For you visual and auditory learners, let youtube explain it for you:



Here's the good news for you! One reader of Loving the little things is going to win their five pack Kingston DataTraveler with urDrive software. Even for those of you that are stay at home moms, this would be a great gift if you don't think you'd utilize it yourself.

  1. Cool giveaway! I probably spend 1 or 2 hours on the computer most days. Some days it's less, some days it's more.

  3. That looks interesting! I feel like I'd have to actually play around with it before I totally understand the concept though.
    How much time on the computer varies day to day by how much "work" admin I have to do. Plus sometimes I stream a cooking show on my computer while making dinner etc. since we don't have cable. So prob my average would be 3-4 hours!

  4. If we don't count computer time at work, I'd say almost an hour a day. If you add work time in, I'm up to 9 hours!!

    My favorite computer time is the half hour before everyone else is up when I can read blogs and drink my coffee while it's still hot!

  7. Tooooooooooo much! Between homework, checking emails, grades, and the addicting facebook... I'd say I EASILY put in over 3 hours/day... But whose counting? ;)

  8. I probably am on my computer about 2-3 hours each day...we don't have cable anymore, so my husband and I spend the majority of our evenings on our laptops/tablets. I'm sure it's more than that some days, but then again, I know there are days that I barely get through my emails/facebook feed. :)
