Kingston DataTraveler Generation 3 G3 32GB USB Drive Review
26 May 2013
Conclusion: So there you have it tested against two other USB drives, the OCZ drive is rather old and the Kingston is the generation before and this G3 shows some rather slow read and write speeds overall. Normally you expect to see larger drives running slower, but here it isn’t the case obviously. The Kingston G3 is meant to be very portable and it is, it’s very small and lightweight making it easy to take with you.
Kingston DataTraveler Hyper X Predator 512GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review (Disassembly Piks Included)
29 January 2013
Conclusion: In taking a close look at the Kingston DataTraveler Hyper X Predator 512GB USB 3.0 flash drive, a number of thoughts come into play and the first deals with performance. I will admit that I am an absolute lover of the ‘LSI SandForce Driven’ SuperTalent Express RC8 and it is with me always. It was the first to really spoil us with performance in a flash drive and I have to wonder why Kingston wouldn’t have done similar here, considering their long standing relationship...
Summary: The Kingston DataTraveler G3 can satisfy all your basic portable-storage needs. We like that it is more durable than our lower-ranked products and that it comes with a cap that can keep the USB connector free of contaminants. It is also a good choice if you need to connect to a Linux-based system. However, if you need a highly secure drive or USB 3.0 compatibility, you will want to look to one of our higher-ranked USB drives.
Pros: This USB flash drive's loop is sturdy, so you can attach it to a key ring; the drive can be co-branded with your logo.
Cons: The Kingston DataTraveler does not include pre-installed security software and does not have an indicator light.
Review of Kingston DataTraveler 310 256gb USB Flash Drive
2 March 2010
Conclusion: So I need to conclude this review here, and well there’s not much more to say that I haven’t really covered above… There’s no doubt that the Kingston DataTraveler 310 is a big drive, it’s relatively fast and it’s well made so it has the makings of a good flash drive overall. It looks good and it seems well made, the metal and plastic housing seems sturdy and rugged so I can give it a 10 rating for the Design.
Pros: Well made, Faster than spec speeds, Largest USB drive on the market
Summary: It’s Kingston day here at TestFreaks, well it wasn’t planned that way, but I figured I’d follow up Tom’s Kingston HyperX Ram review with my own HyperX review as well, not ram though a USB drive.
