Having received criticism for my previous review of this product, I ran my CrystalDiskMark tests again using larger files. For comparison, I also re-ran the exact same test for my 32GB Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate G3. So, here are my revised results.
For both drives I tested with a 4GB file, formatted it as NTFS, plugged into the same USB 3.0 slot, and disabled my Internet Security etc.

Kingston DataTraveler G4:
Read: 82.08MB
Write: 18.24MB
See the actual screenshot here- [...]

Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate G3:
Read: 189.4MB
Write: 90.12MB
See the actual screenshot here- [...]

So, while different people seem to get different results with their tests, I think this pretty clearly shows that it can only manage under half the read speed and about a fifth of the write speed of the more expensive Ultimate G3.
Aside from that, the build quality seems pretty solid to me, so I'm not unhappy with it.

I purchased this item around 2 months ago. Read and write speeds were disappointing but then it just stopped being recognized completely. Back it went and a replacement duly arrived. After two weeks my PC only recognizes the stick intermittently and the read and write speeds are still slow. Worst flash drive I have owned to be honest.

This is not a fast drive...in some tests it ran the same speed as a USB 2.0 drive. Thats in a high end PC (with USB 3.0 ports) and a new USB 3.0 enabled laptop - both with SSDs. Its only barely worth keeping. If its speed you want then look elsewhere.

The plastic hook is flimsy and simply broke off within 2 weeks of use. I wasn't heavy handed with it. Now I can't attach it to anything and it is difficult to push the USB socket out.

Not sure if I've got a faulty one but write speed averages a pitiful 11 Meg/s which is 1/3rd of the speed of my portable hard drive !
It gets surprisingly hot when transferring a lot of data too.

If it wasn't for the fact it's to back up data and therefore won't get regular use I'd return it

Nice design but drive is very slow. The write speed peaks at 10MB/sec which is 4 times slower than USB2.0 speeds.
Not a true USB 3.0 drive.

Firstly, this review is for the Kingston Technology 32GB DataTraveler G4 USB 3.0 Flash drive.
I've posted read/write speeds for both USB 2 and 3 in this review.

This is by far the best budget USB 3.0 flash drive I've purchased.
On USB 2.0 performance, well there's only one thing to say it's pretty much perfect considering the sequential write speed is over 26 MB/s. Only my premium USB 2.0 drives have achieved this in the past.
Onto USB 3.0 performance, well the write speed for a budget drive is excellent almost 34 MB/s. From my experience other budget drives only get to around 15 MB/s if you're lucky. The only time this drive under performs is in the read speeds around 52 MB/s, whereas my other USB 3.0 drives easily exceed 70 MB/s. However, this is not a major concern for my use case.

To conclude, a perfect drive when used in USB 2.0 mode and an excellent budget USB 3.0 drive for write speeds, only slightly let down by the read speed.
This deserves a 5 star rating at less than £10, even with the one performance flaw because it's so rare to find a cheap flash drive that has great write speeds (saves me a lot of time transferring large files from one pc to another).

USB 3.0 read/write speeds:
-------------------------------------------------------------
Sequential Read : 51.578 MB/s
Sequential Write : 33.674 MB/s
Random Read 512KB : 49.973 MB/s
Random Write 512KB : 2.098 MB/s
Random Read 4KB (QD=1) : 11.775 MB/s [ 2874.7 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=1) : 0.015 MB/s [ 3.7 IOPS]
Random Read 4KB (QD=32) : 8.608 MB/s [ 2101.7 IOPS]
Random Write 4KB (QD=32) : 0.013 MB/s [ 3.2 IOPS]

I was attracted by the advertised USB3 and as I only have 1 USB3 flash drive (integral superspeed which writes at 48MB/s) and I required more drives for back-up purposes I bought 3 of these. The write speed is the same as USB2 (8.6MB/s) not what I was expecting. As an example I copied a 2GB file from my HDD on to the Integral drive and it took 45 seconds, the same file copied on to the Kingston took 4.5 mins. This drive should not be advertised as USB3 if it can not achieve the speeds.
On the plus side the drive does seem to be well made so should last and if speed/time is not important then this drive is fine but for a little more money a lot of time could have been saved.
