Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 64gb USB 3.0 Flash Drive
3 March 2011
Excerpt: Today's review is written by Kristofer Brozio. Kristofer is from TestFreaks.com, a product review site, who graciously submitted this review for us to post on jonnyGURU.com. USB 3.0 is here to stay, itâ€™s not going anywhere, and it is the future of portable storage as we know it.
Summary: Simply put, USB 3.0 is now fast enough to make you think you have a lower end SSD within your system. While it's not meant to be your primary storage, it is meant to be a more improved, quick, portable storage solution.
Pros: Comes in high capacities from 16GB to 64GB, Great transfer rates compared to USB 2.0, High performance allows more uses than just storage, A good looking drive!
Summary: While not the fastest USB 3.0 drive, Kingston DT Ultimate 3.0 is very tempting with killer warranty and enough speed to satisfy most customers' needs. If you don't mind giving up some read speed for longevity, then it may just be right up your alley.
Pros: Stylish good looks in a retro chic kinda way, Decent read performance with good write performance, LED indicator is not annoyingly bright, Great 5 year warranty, No software needed to get the most from it, Uses default MS drivers, Y adapter included for increased compatibility with USB 2.0 systems
Cons: Pricey for the speed it offers, May block USB ports to either side of it, Requires USB 3.0 to get the most from it, Will more than likely NEED the Y adapter for hassle-free USB 2.0 connectivity
