Summary: very usable usb with satisfied acceptable data transfer speed rate even if I tested it on usb 2.0 port, the speed was a way better than my old 32G USB (kingston as well). I am sure on usb 3.0 port the copy will be much faster. I didn't give it 4 or 5 because of the price.
Summary: I am using this device to store a database which is mostly accessed randomly on a new desktop. (CPU usage is only 25%) I notice only about 10% overall improvement over using other USB 2.0 memory sticks from other vendors.
Summary: For this price, I will prefer to the get Corsair Voyager GT, the up to 135MB/s is pretty much a lie.
Pros: The design of this flash drive is really nice, I prefer this one than the Corsair's full rubber case. Read speed is pretty good, close to what it's advertised.
Cons: Poor write speeds, especially with small size file. Test with ATTO, Corsair Voyager GT 64GB beats it at no time. So it's kinda fail advertised. Speed only catch up while writing big size files, but still slower than the Corsair one.
Counterfit Received but Amazon replaced with genuine one

Summary: Bought the 256GB Data Traveler directly from Amazon (not marketplace or other vendor)and after trouble shooting very slow performance issues with Kingston they asked that I send it to them for replacement. Now I'm told by Kingston that is it counterfit and they won't replace or send back!
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.
A fine drive, but a bit pricey for its performance

Summary: I purchased this drive just last week. This drive has a very solid build and a huge frame... and it seems a bit heavier than its competitors' USB 3.0 flash drive. That's fine with me, becauses I like my drives to be trustworthy rather than flimsy.
Summary: I want to like this drive, and have high hopes for its eventual replacement. I will definitely be getting the same drive again, as it seems like my experience was a fluke.
Pros: This flash drive wants to be awesome.
Cons: The drive I received was operating at 2/3 of everyone else's benchmarks, even after reformatting with the Kingston utility. Then it started intermittently failing. Sent back to Newegg for a replacement, as others seem happy, for some reason their system gave me a refund even though units were in ...
