1 out of 5 eggs Nice blue connector on a USB2 drive 03/01/2014

This review is from: Kingston 64GB DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DT100G3/64GB)


It has a pretty blue-colored connector just like a real USB3 thumb-drive.


The blue-colored connector is the ONLY feature that this has with a real USB3 thumbdrive. The transfer speeds are laughably bad. These "USB3 Compatible" drives are presently the computer industry's worst bold-faced lie, AFAICT.

Other Thoughts:

Funny how _any_ USB2 drive is "USB3 Compatible", because that's all this apparently is...a USB2 drive with a blue connector.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer our assistance. The DT100G3 is an entry level USB 3.0 drive but does not offer performance transfer speeds. There is much more to USB 3.0 specifications than just the color of the connector or the possible high speeds, such as the number of pins used and power consumption. If you were looking for a performance USB 3.0 drive, please consider out DTR30 which offers a write speed of 30MB/s or our DTHX30 which offers 135MB/s write. 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.
