The DataTraveler Ultimate is priced at £54 for the 16GB version, £85 for 32GB and £166 for 64GB. These prices, over the DataTraveler 200 USB 2.0 alternative, work out that SuperSpeed versions cost an additional £14 for the 32GB model or £35 for the 64GB version.
Even faster than it says on the tin
While the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate is slightly more expensive than its USB 2.0 equivalent, if you’re already splashing out £50 or more on a thumb drive then I don’t think the price difference is going to stop you. After all, you get over three times the performance for spending only a fraction more. Just bear in mind that Y-adaptor if you’re likely to encounter low-power USB ports. ®

Kingston Technology DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 32GB
Mechanical design - fail
Lose-able end-cap. Fail. Especially poor from Kingston, who have a great design for their DataTraveller G2 range.
From my experience they seem to have low count read/write lives
Although Kingston is one of the better ones, they all seem to low total read/write totals whereas SD memory is much more long-lived and more reliable overall.
which is fine for the 16GB version...
but what about the 32 or 64 GB ones. Thought not.
Price looks more expensive than existing models
I got this:
Does the same job? perhaps slower but for the difference in price (circa £40) its a bargain!
Very nice product, well reviewed.
