It’s a fact that USB3 has to offer very
high speed reads and writes, in many cases most USB3 flash drives have the same
or higher speed as a traditional spinning drive, but you don’t have to pay the
penalty of the 2.5" portable size, and most importantly you don’t have to
wait for it to access the file that you need.

The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3
is a drive that will outperform many mechanical drives, and it’s much easier to
carry with you all the time. The flash drives come in two different sizes 32Gb
and 64GB and they are more than enough to carry all the files that you want with
you, but still have enough space for you to use if you need to.

Kingston was kind enough to provide me with
the 32GB version of the DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 for a review. The drive is
able to achieve read speeds of 150MB/Sec and maxes out at 70MB/Sec when it writes.
So let’s not waste any more time, and continue this review, but before I start,
you might want to take a few minutes on the Kingston website, you can click the
