2 out of 5 eggscompatibility issues

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DT100G3/32GB

Pros: Very low price..

Cons: Hit and miss compatibility.
On some computers I have to plug these into a USB port, wait for the driver install to fail then plug into another USB port. (You old-timers will remember USB devices that had this problem) This is a pain since on many machines these days it is hard to find an empty USB port at all.
The stick is a little of the fat side so it presses up against adjacent USB plugs in in unhealthy way.
Of course this compatibility issue makes these impractical to use as a bootable device.

Other Thoughts: If you are just going to copy a few files and throw the stick in the vault then these might b OK to buy.

5 out of 5 eggsI wish I'd get more of these on sale!

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DT100G3/32GB

Pros: 1) Price (less than $0.50 per GB)!
2) Speed (USB 2.0 tested)!

Cons: There is only one thing I am upset about - activity LED absence! Come on, LEDs aren't that expensive, install one already!

Other Thoughts: I do not have USB 3.0 systems, so I use and test for USB 2.0 speeds only:

Writing speed: 19.1 MByte/s
Reading speed: 30.6 MByte/s
Software sued for testing: H2testw v1.4

Impressive! Especially for the price!

1 out of 5 eggsNothing Happens When Plugged In!!!

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DT100G3/32GB

Pros: Okay price for a 32gb flash drive

Cons: After newegg had already shipped out this flash drive, I read in reviews that this is not a "USB 3.0 Performance" drive. The description only means it can be used in a USB 3.0 port but at 2.0 speeds. So I had to convinced myself it was still a good price for a 32gb USB 2.0 flash drive.

Other Thoughts: I received it last week and today I finally got a chance to use it. When I plugged it in my 3.0 port, nothing happens!! But it works in a 2.0 port. What's going on?? I own 7 different flash drives for different things, all of which are USB 2.0, all of which works when I plug it into my 3.0 port. This one I bought which should be USB 3.0 'compatible' does not work!! I'm so upset and feel so ripped off. Spent $20+ on this and I don't even think its worth it to spend money to send it back to Newegg.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer some clarification. The DT100G3 is an entry level USB 3.0 drive, meaning is is compliant with USB 3.0 standards but does not offer performance speeds. This drive should work in all USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports. It would be best to make sure all USB and chipset drivers are up to date to ensure proper functionality of the drive. If that is not an issue the drive can be replaced under it's five year warranty. For further assistance, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

5 out of 5 eggsKingston DataTraveler

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DT100G3/32GB

Pros: Been working fine for almost a year, use it most every day!

Cons: SLOW SLOW SLOW!
Don't expect blazing fast USB 3.0 speeds!

Other Thoughts: My biggest CON is of NewEgg itself, their support and the way they are packing their products has gone way down hill in the last year..Been using A.azon more often because of this.Been a customer of NewEgg for over 10 years but they seem to not care much anymore about good support like they use too!

1 out of 5 eggsVery slow transfer speeds

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DT100G3/32GB

Pros: - Price is reasonable
- Ability to protect USB dongle
- Good design

Cons: - Very slow speed: 7MB/sec at best.
- Turns out the USB3 on it means the device supports USB3, but does not necessarily run at USB3 speeds!! It is all a marketing gimmick

Other Thoughts: I always held Kingston in a special level on their own ahead of the rest when it comes to RAM/USB sticks. However, their latest marketing gimmicks will definitely make me think twice before paying for the brand anymore.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for any confusion with the DT100G3 flash drive. This drive is an entry level USB 3.0 compliant drive, not a performance USB 3.0 drive. We do have several performance USB 3.0 drives available such as the DTR30, DTU30G3, and DTHX30 which offer write speeds of 30MB/s and up. For further assistance or more information, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

4 out of 5 eggsBest Warranty Program Ever

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 100 G3 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DT100G3/32GB

Pros: 32 GB USB 3.0 Price per GB is excellent. + (See other thoughts)

Cons: Just got this via warranty replacement to replace a similar Kingston drive that died after 5 months of use. I no longer see that original Kingston drive for sale anywhere. Hopefully this one lasts longer.

Other Thoughts: Despite the original drive failing after 5 months, I couldn't be happier with Kingston's warranty program. It was ridiculously easy to get an RMA, AND Kingston covered all the shipping costs via FedEx and I got this new drive back within a week of sending in the old one!!! Ironically I sent in another broken flash drive a week earlier from a company that starts with C and should receive that one back late next week. They didn't cover the shipping costs. 1 week turnaround time vs. 3 weeks plus make me pay shipping costs?!? It's a no brainer who I'll be purchasing from in the future... Good job Kingston.

Pros: spacious
