The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 offers superb reading/writing performance offering transfer rates of up to up to 200MB/sec in reading and 90MB/s in writing tests - figures that exceeded the product's specifications. So if you need a high-capacity portable flash drive to transfer large media files between systems, the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 is a very wise choice. Of course, the drive will not be as fast when dealing with smaller files and in real world testing with many different files, you are dealing with a drive capable of writing at about 150MB/s and reading at 70 MB/s.
High-performance comes at a cost, and we are not talking about money as the Kingston drive is well-priced at about $45. Still, it looks bigger in size when compared to other tiny USB flash drives available at the market. It's size does not limit its portability - it fits on a key ring or in a pocket - but we would love to see a more compact design.
The drive is backed by a 5-year warranty and is USB3.0-certified.
