More and more new Laptops and Desktop PCs
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.
