1 out of 5 eggsFrequent Failures

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB

Pros: The shell is rubberized which protects it from falls. I was pleased with the speed. Price is reasonable.

Cons: I now have a second failed drive. I have hesitated to return the second in hopes they will FIX the issue.

Other Thoughts: I have an older DT R500 16GB that has been rock solid.

1 out of 5 eggsFailed Device

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB

Pros: 5 year warranty. If it were 1 year, Kingston would basically be stealing from the consumer as everyone would be getting ripped off.

Cons: This is a terrible product and as you can see, many people have had failures. The RMA process is a joke and convoluted. They should advance replace new working units and send complete return packaging along. It shouldn't be the consumer's responsibly to have to go through so much to send such a failure of a product back them. This type of poor workmanship shouldn't be tolerated.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible quality

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB

Pros: Fast and cheap

Cons: Bought 2 on boxing day 2012. One has failed completely and will no longer work. The other works MOST of the time, but still has issues. I have had to fix and reformat this one many times.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY - especially for critical information!

1 out of 5 eggsAnother one that didn't last

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB

Pros: Very Fast.

Cons: Didn't last. I have purchased dozens of Kingston drives over the years, so many that my wife thinks that USB Flash drives are all Kingston. This one failed after 3 months of light use.

1 out of 5 eggsFails Quickly - Buyer Beware

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB

Pros: Fast data transfer

Cons: Garbled data after 7 months of LIGHT use
Rubberized casing only

Other Thoughts: I purchased this flash drive in November of 2012 and used it lightly for several months, occasionally backing up files from other flash drives. The fast data transfer speed was great. I decided to use this as my primary flash drive on May 20, 2013 ("upgraded" from SanDisk Cruzer Switch with chipped plastic USB connector). This Kingston drive displayed garbled data on June 14, 2013. Windows format will not complete, and DISKPART clean also fails. I'm glad I did not format the Cruzer Switch drive. If I had, I would be mourning the loss of 25GB of data!

I like the physical appearance of the drive. However, there is no solid plastic casing behind the rubber coating.

Kingston devices have served me well in the past, so I'm very disappointed in the quality of this drive. It was my first USB 3.0 drive. I will begin using the Cruzer Switch drive again; that chipped plastic connector isn't so bad after all.

If you purchase a Kingston DTR30/32GB, please back up your data FREQUENTLY.

1 out of 5 eggsPass it by . . .

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB

Pros: Rubberized covering

Cons: Dies early in your ownership - kiss your data goodbye!

RMA is a hoop-jumping exercise.

Other Thoughts: It's Kingston, so you expect it to last. That is not the reality of it.

I'm writing after the death of my replacement for the first one of these I RMAed to Kingston. Neither lasted more than 1 month.

RMA process is a major challenge - they want you to read off a number imprinted on the tongue of the drive which is next to impossible to read - to make sure it isn't a knockoff falsely labeled as a Kingston.

Hey Newegg - I sent them a copy of my Newegg SO and they said I couldn't trust you to sell me only genuine parts. I found the idea that Newegg would do anything along those lines highly insulting.

But they were polite about it.

So, I suggest you not get this flash drive. You can't trust it to last, and they don't trust Newegg to sell only genuine parts.

Sounds like a lose-lose situation to me . . .

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB

Pros: It has a high capacity for data and a high transfer rate. Exactly what I needed for transferring large files and storing programs.

Cons: It stopped working after 4 months of use. Computer will still recognize it, but says there is a problem reading it.

5 out of 5 eggsAs fast as advertised

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler R3.0 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTR30/32GB

Pros: On a USB 2.0 port, wrote a 6.55-GB HD video file in just under 3.5 minutes, which is better than 30 MB/s. Not too shabby. Like the large storage capacity, too.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Comes from Kingston formatted as FAT32. No biggy, I just reformatted to NTFS so I could write files larger than 4 GB.
