Kingston USB 3.0

Kingston's USB 3.0 range is an ultra-fast way to transfer photos, music and video files between all kinds of digital devices. The amount of data stored on these devices is rapidly increasing, so apart from being able to easily access data, fast data transfer is just as important in order to make the best of your time.

Kingston USB 3.0
What is USB 3.0?

USB 3.0 is a major revision to the Universal Serial Bus (USB). It offers the same ease-of-use and plug and play capabilities as previous generations of USB technologies, but with up to a 10 times performance increase and better power management.

Why Do You Need That Much Speed?

USB 3.0 helps you save more time and USB 3.0 drive transfers files faster than USB 2.0 drives. Depending on the drive you choose and the type of files you transfer, USB 3.0 can save you a lot of time compared to standard USB 2.0 drives.

Why Do I Need a USB 3.0 Drive When I Use Only USB 2.0 Ports?

Due to the wide availability of USB 2.0 devices, USB 3.0 devices had to be backwards compatible. Even when you use USB 3.0 drives on your USB 2.0 host devices, you'll save time.

How Fast is USB 3.0?
Kingston USB 3.0
USB 3.0: Look for the blue connector.

The performance increase is achieved through the USB 3.0 technology, which allows multiple streams of data transfer and boosts its peak signaling bandwidth to 5Gbp/s compared to 480Mbp/s on USB 2.0.

Will a USB 3.0 Drive Work on My Device with USB 2.0 Ports?

USB 3.0 devices are compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 ports and connectors, but will only run at the host device performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kingston R500 DataTraveller 27 July 2012
Format:Personal Computers|Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace my now 3 year old 2GB DataTraveller and comparing the two flash drives you can immediately see how far technology has moved in 3 years. As with my old drive this is quality flash drive that is fast at reading and writing. I was torn between buying this and the USB 3 version which appears faster on paper but did not say how fast it would be on the older USB 2 ports.
since I have a mix of USB2 and USB3 ports I wanted to make sure I would get a reasonable speed on all.
This is a highly recommended drive and worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good and fast usb for a bargain price. 19 Feb 2013
Format:Personal Computers|Verified Purchase
I was looking for a usb that I could use to transfer large image data from an office pc to my pc. The pc is quite old and only supports usb2 so I was looking for a usb stick that would be fast and reliable. I read quite a few reviews online and seemed that all of them gave very good feedback on the Kingston R500. I must admit that I was really impressed when I used it. The waiting time for copying the data to the usb dropped to one third in comparison with other usbs that I have tried. It is also covered with a nice rubber protective case. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product 3 Feb 2013
By Nell265
Format:Personal Computers|Verified Purchase
I've bought 2 so they must be good.

Very easy to use, just plug it into your device and start saving. Saves things quickly. Nice feel to it and good padding to keep it safe. I have had no problem with either.

Fairly priced and arrived promptly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 2 Feb 2013
By Dave
Size Name:16GB|Verified Purchase
Nice blue. Futuristic outlook. One really dumb thing: its just as wide, that you cannot plug nothing in the usb port next to it (at least on a Macbook Pro). Having a Mid 2012 Macbook Pro with SSD, was able to copy a 1.0 GB file with 28-33 MB/s. I guess it worth the price.

I have always used Kingston memory sticks, this sits at the top of list, its fast even when connected to USB and carried all my data, its rubber casing gives it more protection.
