Kingston DataTraveler G4
Alright, USB 3.0 from Kingston, that should be good, right? No, it is average.
Now, as we’ve seen, some drives which are rated as average fail in many points. This one is pure and simple not made to shine. Rather, the manufacturers forgot that USB 3.0 should perform above 2.0 in every respect. I’m not saying this one performs as a 2.0 drive ( it performs as a good 2.0 drive ) but that doesn’t cut it.
At 78 mpbs read and 33 mpbs write, it’s close to being a bad 3.0 but an excellent 2.0 drive . Sequential seems to be forgotten by Kingston these days, as it appears that random 4K is, again, better with 7.5 read and 0.4 write. People do tend to do that on 4GB or 8GB drives, but on 16GB or higher it becomes obvious that sequential is the purpose and you should focus on that, if you plan not to release any smaller versions.
You can attach it to your keychain, although I wouldn’t do that because the attached ring seems quite flimsy and you might even lose it.
No matter, the price goes as low as $20 so it’s quite alright in terms of money value. But adding a different value to the money doesn’t quite seem to make it in this case.
