Appearance and ergonomics
Sleek aluminum case with logo attracts attention for the drive Kingmax UD-09 of even those users who are not yet going to change their old slow USB flash drive to a new.

The cover of USB-interface is made large enough, so it can’t be just forgotten on the table or somewhere else.
Drive Kingmax UD-09 is hardly can be called compact. It looks more like a classic stick, but with an elegant, restrained design. New housing is made of lightweight and durable lacquered aluminum, so the device looks impressive and expensive, especially since it only comes in two colors — black and silver: brighter colors fans have to look closely to other models. On the end face the drive has barely visible metal loop for attaching lace safety, and the only additional element of design for Kingmax UD-09 is a transverse light box in the central part of the body. Insert of the body divides it into two halves, one of which — it's pretty long USB-connector cover — this will not be easy to lose, even for scattered user. In general, if you are not attracted by combination of price and Interface USB 3.0, Kingmax relies on the fact that you are not able to resist the design of the stick.
