KINGMAX UI-05 USB Flash Drive, the World Most Revealing USB Drive that features casing design in which the chip is housed under a glass ceiling that is both waterproof and dustproof. The said USB Flash is made in PIP technology. Innovative IMLCC engineering allows the glass casing on the top side of the UI-05 to reveal the drive’s inner flash die and wire-bonding structure.

KINGMAX UI-05 USB FLASH DRIVE / STRAP METAL

Waterproof, Dustproof and plus the metal casing makes everything durable!
It would like to give big points to KINGMAX for having this kind of USB Flash Drive. As for the exterior looks, it’s a fashionable tech item. You can wear it as a necklace or as a keychain (or whatever would it be) and take it anywhere and ready store important documents or files.

There is a glass on the top layer of the FLASH/ROM, and it has some kind of reflective effect when directly hit by a flashlight or sunlight.

The metal casing shines like a jewelry…

If one thing I can point out or missing to the USB Flash Drive, would be the cap on the USB Slot controller. That would put everything into perfect place, but other than that, it’s all good enough.

Note: if the Flash Drive soaks into the water, let it dry first before plugging it in. As I mention earlier, the USB slot controller doesn’t have a cap.

Judging from the test/benchmark, the read access has a decent transfer speed while the write access is in low transfer speed rate. Within this data, you can say that this USB Flash Drive is not entirely built-in for fast copy/speed rate.

File Size: 695 MB (1 File)
Time to complete the transfer: 01 min. and 51.79 secs.
Transfer Speed Rate: 6.3MB/s

I installed “Teracopy” software to test my theory. As the result, it looks like it is much faster to copy/transfer file within USB going to Local HDD, than Local HDD going to USB Flash Drive.

Features:
World most revealing flash drive / High quality metal case / LED indicator light / Waterproof and dustproof / Strap hole makes it easy to carry / Compliant with USB2.0 specification ( up to 480Mb/s)

Specification:
Capacity: 8GB/16GB/32GB
Interface: USB 2.0
Dimensions: 42mm (L) x 12mm (W) x 4.5mm (H)
Supported: Win 8/ Win 7/ Vista/ XP/ 2000/ MAC OS V10.6.1/Linux Kernel V2.6.x
Body/Color: Metallic Silver
Warranty: 5 YEARS

VERDICT: The KINGMAX UI-05 Flash Drive has the elegant design and protection you need for everyday usages, as mention this is a USB Flash Drive and not an External USB Portable HDD Drive, so it can only handles couples of files and documents to save. But if you’re asking for more than to its capacity, then this gadget is not for you. In terms of transfer speed, this USB Flash Drive is not built for fast file transfer, and not capable to USB 3.0 speeds. Fortunately, the best deal for UI-05 Flash Drive is the affordability (comes with 5 years warranty) and a quality that you can count on. User Experience and Rating: 4/5

AVAILABILITY/PRICE:
KINGMAX UI-05 is available in 8GB (PHP 400 SRP), 16GB (PHP 550 SRP) and 32GB (around 1K, I haven’t get the exact amount for this). Available at Octagon Computer Superstore.
