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. I use this for MP3's in my cars using Pioneer AVH decks (different one in each car) with no problems whatsoever.
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. However, the format is EXFAT. Large memory EXFAT and NTFS formatted drives will not be readable on TVs. I wish that fact were published before I made the purchase.
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. Although it snaps on pretty snug on both ends, I can see it coming loose in my jeans pocket and losing it.
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. One testing the transfer rate in HFS+ (Mac OS) and one in exFAT (NTFS / Windows Format). See pics. The speeds were faster than advertised for HFS+ and right on par with exFAT or native windows file system. At 60 bucks per stick....
