1 out of 5 eggs Nothing Happens When Plugged In!!! 11/27/2013

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


Okay price for a 32gb flash drive


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.
