are equipped with the new USB 3 technology, so it’s time for us to look closer at
devices that are supporting this new USB Superspeed standard. This time
Kingston NL was kind enough to send us a review sample of their first USB 3 supporting flash memory drive, the Kingston Data Traveller Ultimate 3.0. The device is
available with storage capacities of of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. In our review we
use the 32GB version.

Packaging – DT Ultimate 3.0
What’s inside the box
Now it’s time to take a look at the content
of the package.
The package contained the DT Ultimate flash
drive itself, a y-cable for connecting the device to common USB 2 ports and a strap.
Now let’s take a look at the drive itself.
On the top of this stylish but “bulky” drive
we can see the name and the capacity of the device.
On the bottom of the drive, we can see the Kingston company name.
Now let’s head to the next page, where
we look at the specifications.
