Kingston DataTraveler 300


$1,000.00 Released July, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Massive amount of storage in a tiny form factor, carrying a hard drive capacity storage in on the end of your keychain. Attractive exterior design with a brushed metal surface. Good construction and materials, high quality plastics and strong retractable mechanism.

The Cons:Slow transfer speed compared to lower capacity drives, very disappointing. Super high price, more expensive than SSDs at twice the capacity. Better of buying a 256GB SSD and a USB3.0 enclosure for a lower price, similar portability, and far high transfer speeds.

The Kingston DataTraveler 300 is a USB flash drive from Kingston’s DataTraveler Series. Unlike its predecessors (DataTraveler, DataTraveler 200), the DataTravel 300 comes in only one size: 256GB.

That’s enough to store 10 Blu-ray discs, 54 DVD discs, or 365 CD discs. Like the 200, the 300 offers a read speed of 20MB/sec and a write speed of 10MB/sec. Unlike its predecessor, however, the 300 works with all major operating systems, including Windows 7, Mac OS X, Linux, and even ReadyBoost. Additional features include password protection via Password Traveler; a capless design; and a 5-year limited warranty.
