      Very fast data transfer

      I use this jump drive as a back up.
      It's extremely fast to transfer the data.
      There is no software added to it so you don't lose space on the jump drive.

        Comments about Kingston Data Traveler HyperX 3.0 USB Drive (128GB):

        I purchased this to "carry" my photos to school. As the data files are huge, I wanted both a large capacity and quick transfer.
        I can upload at over 130Mbs ( very quick ).
        Not much else to say, worked right out of the box, capacity is as expected.
        Again if you like your hardware crazy fast: get this!!!!!!!!!!

        This drive replaced a portable hard disk drive I was using to backup a work computer and used when working remotely. I'm using it on a USB2 interface and it is about half as fast as the hard drive which was expected. Can't wait to get my USB3 computer. I'm very satisfied with the product and will use it extensively.

            I travel quite often and I need to have a lot of data at hand. The Data Traveler 128GB allows me to keep a huge amount of data in a tiny space. In addition it is not subject to damage by blows as much as a regular HD would be. I find it invaluable.

                Very fast! Huge storage capacity .. my entire 500+ CD collection fits on this drive in 320 kbps MP3 file format!Use it in my car's USB port to have access to all my CD's without fear of heat or breakage/scratch damage while travelling. So far the unit has been reliable. Has a nice blue LED indicator when being read from or written to. Connector protection cap snaps on the back of the unit when in use. Would recommend it for the cost vs. storage alone.

                    Speed is very good and high-enough capacity for my needs. However, still some sting from the price. I am not a storage nerd, so i don't know if the average price per GB compared to other options...I just know it stings. My impression was it was the best available for speed, and so it appears to be. Only a 4Star for price...but i may be uninformed.
