Hey.  I was only giving my personal experience.  I had 2 different Kingston
"jump drives"  there websites list them as a 1,000,000 Hours MTBF, but I
couldn't get over a month(720 hours) without failure.  If you wanna use
them, great.  I wont.  I switched to the slightly more expensive Transcend
IDE flash modules and they haven't let me down yet.  If you have used them
and find they work, share that information.  All I did was share my personal
experience in hopes it would help someone else out there.  That's what I
think this list is for, not to badger those who have a different view point
then you.

Hi Ryan,

That's utter rubbish.  Can you refer me to a technical doc that states
what you claim here?  I've been running many USB sticks permanently and
none have issues as you describe.  The fact that you happened to have a
dodgy USB stick doesn't mean that the millions of others out there won't
work as designed.

Not to mention that a sample of "1" is far from representative of the
millions of units out there.  And no mention of the brand either...
