Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review

Final Thoughts
Besides phones I think that flash drives are something that a wide variety of people have.  There are so many different types of drives out there it really is hard to decide what type of drive to get.  Because of this many people head to the store and pick up the first drive that they see.  Don’t do that because at the end of the day you actually want a drive that is going to serve your needs.  Let’s talk about what the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 offers.

First off this is a USB 3.0 drive.  That means if you have a computer that has USB 3.0 ports you are going to see up to an 8x speed increase over USB 2.0.  So transferring files is going to be much faster, so you don’t have to sit there and wait.  You can transfer your files and get busy working.  Don’t worry if your computer or a computer you are using does not have a USB 3.0 port the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0.

The DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 has a great design that not only looks great, but is functional and protects the drive.  The metal casing looks great but at the same time can take the wear and tear the drive is going to go through if it is connected to your keychain.  The retractable design will protect the USB connection when it is not in use and that also means you don’t have a cap that you have a good chance of losing.

Kingston is only offering this drive is 32GB and 64GB versions, so if you need something that capacity you are set.  At those capacities you can run an operating system off the drive!

Overall I think that the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 is a great choice when it comes to a flash drive whether you are simply transferring files, doing daily backups or running an operating system off the drive.  Kingston also backs it with a 5 year warranty!  Right now you can pick up the 64GB version of the drive for $77.99.  Overall ThinkComputers gives the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive a 10 out of 10 score and our Recommended Award!

Pros:
– Outperformed listed specifications
– Tough metal casing
– Retractable design
– 5 year warranty

Cons:
