Kanguru Solutions ALK-4G 4GB FlashBlu 2
Very handy to repair infected systems by booting from the unit or using it to copy tools on target for cleanup or repair. Very good price for such a useful device! No more worries! I’m really pleased!
These are great for working on infected or possibly infected computers without having to worry about something jumping to the flash drive and then back onto a clean machine.
* Very functional write-protect switch.
As a technician, I found a very usable USB drive which I can use with confidence on machines that might be infected with mal-ware. Having tested the write protect switch I am very pleased with my purchase.
* Rugged aluminum casing is a definite plus
* Cap protecting USB connector could be easily misplaced. I would like some form of rugged attached protection for the connector.
* My only regret is not purchasing a larger one.
It’s a shame this feature is so rare and you have to pay a premium price when you do find it. That said, this drive is extremely solidly built and just screams both quality and reliability, so you do get a good value for the money. Kudos to Kanguru for that!
It really is the perfect drive to keep a bootable rescue system on (or in my case, multiple WIM images using a boot manager selection menu) and never have to worry about cross-infection or unwanted file alterations.
The plastic cap sits quite tightly on the connector end and offers great protection, no worries about losing it here. One reviewer mentioned that you can put the cap on the other end while using the drive – this is true, but not possible if you also have a lanyard attached. It’s one or the other.
The Kanguru isn’t screaming fast – maybe 4-5MB/sec write and about 15-18MB/sec read, but for its intended purpose the read speeds probably matter much more and are totally sufficient – booting from it takes mere moments.
All in all, a great little product which I’m glad I ordered.
This has become my go to drive when i need to connect to a machine with dubious security. I keep a few essential utilities on this drive.
Since I am not using this to move data back and forth I really can’t speak about transfer speed as compared to other USB 2.0 flash drives.
Those few times I do update or add software to it I have not noticed anything unusual about transfer speed.
The drive came with a lanyard, clear plastic detachable cap and appears to have a body made of aluminum.
The write protect switch is on one of the narrow sides and has a clearly marked unlock graphic for reference.
If you find yourself needing to connect to unknown computers the Kanguru Flashblu 2 4GB USB Flash Drive with write protection enabled is a nice solution.
The drives are relatively thin which is a positive and they have large openings for lanyards. The caps however are easy to lose because there is no method for attaching them to the lanyard.
