I bought 128 GB version. Solid build speed is good. But has available storage of only 119 GB.
The capacity is a marketing loophole that has been used for years. That's how a 500GB HDD can be shipped and the user only really gets 480GB or similar.

128GB is also raw space, you lose some due to formatting overhead

Computers use base 12 while hard drive industry uses base 10.

You mean base 2, a.k.a. binary.

This Samsung has a metal enclosure, which is 10x more durable than the plastic like the Kingston. I have this and two other sizes, that have lasted years. If you are rough with your gear or work outside of an office, these are highly recommended. Nothing against Kingston.

This is the only USB drive that I have been able to keep on my keychain. The ring hole is a little awkward but it's durable as hell, has worked great for me. I'm a sysadmin and have a Hirens boot image on here for field recovery, has been invaluable.

Yes the bigger the size the more it will be truncated. Mainly due to raw vs formatted capacity that's not to say they can't make drives that would have the advertised number when formatted but it's been going on for so long that people should have gotten used to it and it's like a standard now. Its not the only industry that has been doing so, for example the 2x4 at your local building supply are actually 1.5x3.5" due to 2x4 used to refer to raw unfinished wood (old houses still have true sizes but finish is rough like they just cut them at sawmill), new ones are less because they trim them to nice finish (leftovers are obviously get used elsewhere) but it's easier to remember full sizes (as long as people remember actual ones).

Most people know the difference between GB and GiB. However, many companies like Apple simply do not want users to use the entire storage space available.

For example, 16 GB iPhone will use over 10 GB for system space. This means it is really a 6 GB iPhone, misleading consumers.
Most people don't know the difference between GB and GiB, are you crazy?
