2 out of 5 eggs Will not buy another of these 12/11/2013

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Purple) Model DT101G2/32GBZ


Cheap, blinking LED


VERY SLOW! I bought this to work with a video recorder that says it typically works with any USB drive. Well not this one. Way too slow! I trying another drive from another vendor.

Other Thoughts:

I like Kinsington for the quality I have seen from them in the past, and this unit may last years, I don't know, but I will not be using it much since it is so agonizingly slow. Glad it was cheap!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer our assistance. The DT101G2 is not a performance drive and does not offer high transfer speeds. Typically, with video recording especially is HD one would need a transfer rate of at least 10MB/s. Our DT100G3 does offer this write speed at the same capacity. Although, a performance drive may be better suited for your purposes as it would reduce write time and allow you to record easier without losing time such as out DTR30 or DTU30G3 which offer 70MB/s in USB 3.0 and around 25MB/s in USB 2.0. For any 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.
