Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive

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 performance-grade USB 3.0 drives for hardware enthusiasts.

Today, we are going to take a look at Kingston's latest USB 3.0 flash drive targeted at the performance market - the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Generation 3 (DTU30G3). Here are the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3's key features :

Large Capacities - Large storage capacities of 32 GB and 64 GB.

Fast - Supports faster data transfer rates of up to 150 MB/s (read) and 70 MB/s (write) for USB 3.0.

Compatible - Fully compatible with both USB 3.0 as well as USB 2.0 ports and hubs on both Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.

Stylish - Attractive solid metal capless design complements Mac products and other stylish mobile devices.

Guaranteed - With a 5-year warranty and free technical support.

As you can tell from its name, it is the third-generation model of the DataTraveler Ultimate family of performance-grade USB flash drives. Its predecessors, the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 (DTU30) and the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 Gen. 2 have impressed us with their performance. We expect the G3 to do no less. Let's take a look at how it racks up against a slew of other USB flash drives!

Our Review System

Tech ARP is committed to developing new ways to improve your experience with us. As part of our continuous efforts to improve the value of our reviews to you, we are implementing a multi-tier review system.

This review system is designed to allow you to quickly receive information on the latest hardware or software. This new system also allows you to quickly get the gist of the review without reading through it. This can be very useful, especially in situations where you need to make a quick purchase decision.

In this new system, we start with a Product Overview whenever a company sends us a press release about their latest product. We shift through extraneous PR-talk to create a straightforward summary of the product's features as well as specifications. This allows you to quickly find out all the pertinent details about the product, without reading through official press releases.

When we receive the product for review, we will quickly take photos of it and create a Pictorial Review. The purpose of a pictorial review is to allow you, the reader, to quickly examine the product visually. It may help you make better purchase decisions, especially if you cannot wait for the full review.

After thorough testing, we will post a Comprehensive Review of the product. This adds on to the pictorial review with comprehensive test results and our final conclusion on the product.

But no matter whether you are reading a Pictorial Review or a Comprehensive Review, you can always read the summary of the review as well as examine the product's specifications right on the first page. In all our new reviews, we will maintain the first page as a Product Overview page. If the product is listed in PriceGrabber, you can also check out the lowest price online.

We hope this new review system will make your experience a lot more enjoyable and informative!
