1 out of 5 eggs Not USB 3.0 speed 02/25/2014

This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/16GB)


You won't lose the cap


VERY SLOW. Whatever "USB 3.0 Complliant" means, it is certainly not referring to transfer rate (more likely the electrical implementation, which is irrelevant to the user). I get a write speed of 22MB/s, which would be considered slow for even a USB 2.0 device. Read/write speeds are not given in the specs or on the packaging. This is, simply put, a rip off.

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 device that offers a 40MB/s read, 10MB/s write speed some drives may out perform this specification as you indicated. We do have performance USB 3.0 drives like out DTHX30 which offers 225MB/s read, 135MB/s write in USB 3.0 and is capped at 30MB/s read/write in USB 2.0 ports. 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.
