1 out of 5 eggs Very slow transfer speeds 11/05/2013

This review is from: Kingston 32GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (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.
