This review is from: Kingston 8GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/8GB)
1 piece design eliminating the possibility of loosing a cover, hardened plastic mold construction
Transfer rates very slow for a USB 3.0 device. Speeds compare to a USB 2.0 drive of equal value. Not worth the purchase. I have a few other USB 3.0 flash drives that well exceed the 100MB /sec. This doesn't even reach 7MB /sec
Surprising that Kingston would falsely advertise a "High Speed" product that is just a regular cheap flash drive with a blue port. New Egg should consider giving it away free with orders over $100
Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. Please understand the DT100G3 is an entry level drive that is USB 3.0 compliant and is not considered a performance drive. If you are looking for a USB 3.0 drive with high transfer rates as described please consider our DTHX30 which does offer 135MB/s write speed when in a USB 3.0 port. For any other 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.
