not worth it

Summary: Lots of reviewers seem to indicate that it's a really fast drive, that is not entirely true. The write speeds are abysmal before 64K. After that it picks up, but for me it only got to about 70-100 MB/s (in ATTO) for the writes and all over the place for the reads between about 130-160 MB/s.
Pros: It isn't dead
Cons: slllloooooooowwwwwww writes up until 64K speeds were all over the place in ATTO
Summary: Awesome! It is what it is, and does what's it's supposed to do. I haven't bench-marked it or anything, so I can't speak to specific rates. What I can say is.. it's fast, it feels durable, metal? It has about 117GB available for use, which is on par with any other 128GB flash device.
Summary: I had anticipated I would be able to copy video files from my PC hard drive to the Kingston Data Traveler in the hope of using that vehicle to watch them on my TV and, thus, free more valuable space on my hard drive. If the flash memory were in FAT or FAT32 format, this would be possible.
Summary: There is firmware bug on this USB thumb drive. When Windows hibernates and wakes up, it does not see this drive. I have never had that problem on the (Kingston HyperX 3.0) 64GB version as far as I remember. Other than that, the drive is great with very good capacity.
Summary: Solid construction. Great looking. Good use of rubber for grip. Love the blue color. Oh, did I mention that it was fast? It's the fastest USB 3 flash drive that I own and it is FAST! The only thing I wish it had is some sort of a lanyard or attachment for the cap.
WOW - A product that exceeds advertisements and expectations!

Summary: I don't leave reviews often, but when I do, it's because I'm highly impressed. Performed a couple of tests on the 128GB version (bought two sticks and performed the test on both sticks). Using Mac OS Yosemite, I ran two sets of test.
