Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
  • Good price for its size and transfer speeds are decent and it doesnt get hot to the touch.
  • These USB Drives are great. The size is fantastic for my photos.
  • Great price and the perfect size to make sure we could fit the files on without worrying too much about space.
  • Sliding mechanism often tends to open unintentionally while in my pocket.
  • Most of the time the transfer speed wont go beyond 10 mb/s.
Kingston DataTraveler G4 32GB 3.0 USB Flash Drive
  • The read speeds are around 80MB/s, depending on file size, and the write speed is only about 15 MB/s in the best of circumstances.
  • A brand name, high speed, pocket sized flash drive with a ton of data to fill.
  • The drive looks fairly sleek and elegant, despite the text on the side.
  • The transfer speed with this drive is amazing, and the size is hard to come by for the price!
  • The interface may be usb3 but these drives are terribly slow. They top out around 14MB/s my real usb3 pen drive tops out around 75MB/s.
