Kingston DataTraveler Flash Drives

As one of the top manufacturers of USB flash drives, it's no surprise that Kingston offers a wide variety of USB flash drives under their DataTraveler label. Not only do they have a ton of choices for the discerning consumer, they also have some exotic options like ultra-encrypted USB flash drives for the enterprise and government market, and new USB 3.0 drives for early tech adopters.

Today, we are going to take a look at Kingston's latest USB 3.0 flash drive - the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Generation 2 (DTU30G2). Here are the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G2's key features :

Large Capacities - Supports large storage capacities of 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB.

Fast - Supports faster data transfer rates of up to 100 MB/s (read) and 70 MB/s (write) for USB 3.0.

Backward Compatible - Fully compatible with both USB 3.0 as well as USB 2.0 ports and hubs.

Simple Operation - Just plug into any USB port!

Practical - Features a durable casing with a solid lanyard loop.

Guaranteed - With a 5-year warranty.

Now, let's take a look at the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G2 and see how it racks up against a slew of other USB flash drives!

 

Packaging

The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G2 flash drive was packaged in a plastic clamshell. Oh, how we hate such clamshell packaging. They are great for display and theft prevention, but absolutely horrendous to open and cannot be reused. If only Kingston would go with easier-to-open blister packs, or improve on the clamshell packaging by adding easy-open tabs or pre-perforated edges.

Until that happens, just remember that rage won't open this package. Take a deep breath and count to ten. Then take the biggest pair of scissors you have and have a go at it!

Once you break open the clamshell, you will find the following items :

  • the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Generation 2 USB 3.0 flash drive,
  • a lanyard,
  • and a cardboard backing contains warranty and usage information
