So Slow 04/13/2014
This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Black) Model DT101G2/16GBZ
Nice physical size, well built and good price.
Very, very slow. The speeds both read and write are in the USB 1.1 range rather than USB 2. This is the largest of my USB drives and also the slowest by far, making it almost useless for large amounts of data.
Hello, I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support and would like to offer our assistance. Please understand the DT101G2 is a standard USB 2.0 drive and does not offer performance transfer rates. Although, USB 1.1 speeds would be rather low as it's maximum bandwidth was 12Mbit/s or 125KB/s more realistically around 100KB/s which in it's day would not have been much of an issue. USB 2.0 has a realistic limitation of about 30MB/s which would be offered with performance USB drives. Such as the DTHX30 which offers USB 3.0 write speed up to 135MB/s and USB 2.0 speed of 30MB/s. 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.
