I have the 32gb version and it's very well built and lives upto its speed claims.

Read 84 write 38 on a sequential test (on a new pc). Did a windows install with it on Sunday and worked fine.

Are you sure are the higher capacity ones faster as had a 32gb one and would copy files at about 20-22mb.

Mine was a 32gb one also. Tested on a brand new rig, win8 64bit I7 16gb ram, using usbdeview software.

What about when sending files onto what speed you get for that. Only reason ask as have used benchmarks before and said 100mbs but when transfers was more like 70mbs. That was with the kingston ultimate.

A quote from a Kingston techie on Amazon in response to a question about speeds:

'I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We apologize for any issue created by the speed of the DTIG4 flash drive. This drive is an entry level USB 3.0 drive and it's expected write speed is roughly 10MB/s. If you were looking for a performance USB 3.0 drive, please consider our DTR30G2 which offers 25MB/s in USB 3.0 for the 16GB capcity and 45MB/s write for 32GB/64GB capacities.'

Write with a 2.5gb avi single file was showing as around 30-33, with 750mb avi single file around 31-35, with a 8gb .db around 29-38, with folder containing 70 photo's around 19-23. That's just what win8 says transfers speeds where, while drag and dropping onto stick. This was on a "fresh" build PC only built on Sunday.

Review:

It's an entry level drive with good read performance and middling write performance. The write performance really suffers with small files. I can't think of any 128GB flash drive that is significantly better for the same price so reasonably priced.

Call it sour grapes, a flawed and cynical outlook or perhaps a rampant gossip but gleaned from the 4 x Kingston Usb Sticks plus 2 x mSD card purchased have lead self to suspect and imagined that had no brand/logo been printed on those products, one could easily declare that they are counterfeits of the worse order – should such a label be possible. The constant apparition appearing before one’s imagination when using those products is, “Slower Than Hell”, and, “Do those XYZ Taiwanese birdnest feasting counterfeiters have to make it soo slow? Eh?”. Yes, bottom of the barrel scrappings comes to mind … and what if they are reely, reely Kingston’s abortions? Eh? Makes you ‘fink, ain’t eet. Yes, “For Fred’s Sake, you calculating, miserly gobblers”, comes to mind …. Mere conjecture, of course, but Caveat Emptor.

At least she was honest. I think the price is a little steep considering the speed quality.

These are a con really. Selling a device as usb3 you would expect it would be faster. Marketing ploys.

USB3 is 5yrs old now.

lol, what the heck? that was awesome.
I agree tho, in my experience cheap stuff like this means that it's probably cheap for a reason and I for one keep getting burnt... =[ In fact I "blame" this website for quite a few of them (really just my lack of will power ofc). Now I think: spend a bit more and buy something you really want to use for the long haul so it doesn't end up needing (or just wanting it) to be replaced. Well, that's my motto anyway. =)

Good motto. All the time you spend thinking of buying something and you never do, (waiting for a better one), you could have been using it.
