Review of Kingston DataTraveler Elite 3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
8 May 2012
Conclusion: Kingston’s first budget USB 3.0 flash drive is a solid performer meeting its advertised speeds without any issues. While the DataTraveler Elite 3.0 is not as fast as it’s predecessors from Kingston it does pretty well compared to the older USB 2.0 standard flash drives. The drive is well made with a capless which means no lost caps for the owner. Currently it retails for around $50 at Newegg making it one of the fastest USB 3.0 drives at its price point.
Pros: Good performance, Small, Portable, Capless design
Cons: Less rugged than other Kingston USB 3.0 flash drives
