          Comments about Kingston 16GB Data Traveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive:

          I bought 2 of these and I have another 3.0 usb drive. Both of these don't even compare with my other. They have basically 2.0 speeds in a 3.0 port. You get what you pay for I guess, but I am shocked that I was let down by a Kingston product.

                Good quality, good price, USB 3.0 so much faster than a USB 2.o thumb drive.

                      Need to be more business competitive and updated
                      in pricing, especially near major holidays where
                      consumers are willing to spend money. products'
                      quality is ok, but pricing need to be more
                      competitive before losing business to other stores. Need more on sale products to attract more potential customers. good luck. 10/29/2013 cy

                      Comments about Kingston 16GB Data Traveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 Flash Drive:

                      Disappointed with this flash drive because of its size and speed.

                      The drive's case is so large that I can't have it and another USB device plugged into my laptop (Macbook, 13" Late 2007) at the same time. I would assume anyone with horizontally aligned USB ports would experience the same problem. The drive appears slim enough on the top and bottom to fit with other devices on a machine with vertically aligned USB ports (e.g., desktop), although it might be a very tight fit.

                      I haven't tested the drive with USB 3.0 yet, but I've included the speed test results from USB 2.0 below:

                      USB 2.0 Blackmagic Disk Speed Test (5 GB stress)
                      Write: 6.0 MB/s
                      Read: 36.0 MB/s

                      Overall, the drive feels quite cheap. While the sliding design is convenient, the excessive size and bulk of the case make this flash drive a major hassel to use.

                      I recommend spending a bit more money to get a flash drive with a slimmer, sleeker case and better speed.

                      I will update this review when I test the drive with USB 3.0.
