Kingston releases new USB 3 flash drive

Written by Nick Farell


30MBps too slow for you
Kingston have just announced that they are releasing a new flash drive which can write at 80 Mbps.

Dubbed the USB 3.0 Data Traveller the flash drive is nearly three times faster than existing thumb drives. The drive can read at 100 MBps and write at 70 Mbps and if it sounds too good to be true, you would be right.

To get these speeds when the USB drive is plugged into USB 3.0 port and they are thin on the ground at the moment. You could still buy one as it will work in the USB 2.0 port too but that would be largely pointless. In their press release, the company mentions that their G2 Pen Drive is ideal choice for professionals who want to take advantages of all the features offered by USB 3 technology. Kingston’s Andrew Ewing, flash memory business manager said that the company is committed to speed up the market adoption of USB 3.0.

Growing adoption of USB 3 technology by software and hardware platform is going to give the required push to the popularity of next generation of flash drives. Kingston’s flash drives offer support to Microsoft Windows XP, Vista & 7 versions and the price chart is as follows: Kingston DataTraveler Ul DTU30G2/16GB 16GB DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G2 USB Flash Drive $77.00 DTU30G2/32GB 32GB DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G2 USB Flash Drive $116.00 DTU30G2/64GB 64GB DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G2 USB Flash Drive $ 213.00

Kingston offers 5 years warranty on all above devices which might force you to get one of these.
