DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 proves once again that Kingston offers exceptional performance without sacrificing product's high quality design.
At the moment DT HyperX 3.0 is one of the fastest flash drives available and I'm sure that soon we will see even faster devices.
Most of the top speed flash drives aren't small and also HyperX series are quite big. It's just the cost of high speed. Even though we were not performing "crash tests", casing looks pretty durable and it just feels solid.
Looking at the online stores I've found prices around $69 what is rather high for 64GB flash drive. We have to remember that this device is providing us top speed so price will be for sure higher than any regular flash drives.
There are no issues with availability and most larger online stores have DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64, 128 and 256GB on stock.
Warranty is for sure one of the advantages. Kingston being sure of product quality, gives us five year warranty. It's more than enough as most users will probably buy larger and faster device in a year or two.
- great performance
- high capacity
- durable casing
- 5 year warranty
- could be smaller
- price could be lower
- some tests are showing lower than expected sequential write transfer
Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 is a great flash drive and I can recommend it to everyone who are looking for a small, high performance storage. Everyone who is often moving data from a laptop will be for sure satisfied.
Since advantages of Kingston DT HyperX 3.0 take much bigger part in general impression, then final score is high and I can clearly recommend this product without any doubt.
