The Kingston Data Traveler Ultimate 3.0 Flash drive takes advantage of the faster USB 3.0 specification that has up to ten times the data transfer rates of the current USB 2.0 specification.
Data Traveler Ultimate 3.0 has a speed of 80MB/sec and a write speed of 60MB/sec. The massive 16GB, 32GB and 64GB memory capacities help it it ideal for data backup or fast transferring of large files including music, photos and videos.
Kingston claimed that during the internal testing, a 1 hour 44 minute movie (3.9GB) was written to the drive in 1 minute 13 seconds and a 2 hour 23 minute DVD (4.4GB) transferred to the drive at a fast 1 minute 23 seconds.
Kingston also provides a Y cable for the backward compatibility as some USB 2.0 ports require it to initialize USB 3.0 drives. The new Flash drives are backed by a five-year warranty and free tech support.
