    Specifications.

    Lets see what Kingston has to say about the DataTraveler Ultimate G3.

    Packaging.

    So it comes in a plastic blister pack, nothing more.

    The insert just mentions the warranty.


    The drive.

    Nice brushed aluminium casing looks nice but a bit of a finger print magnet.

    Push the two parts together to access the drives port.


    Size comparison.

    It is bulkier than other thumb drives I have had before, the lower picture shows it next to a Kingston SE9.


    Test setup.

    Performance.

    A complete demolition of the older USB2.0 drive by the increased bandwidth of USB3.0.


    I also timed how long it took to send a 10.8GB MKV file to both drives and the results are,

    Kingston Ultimate DataTraveler G3: 2 minutes 27 seconds.
    Kingston SE9: 43 minutes.


    Final thoughts.

    A rather nice if rather big USB thumb drive with what appears to me to have good speed.
