Don’t buy Kingston DataTraveler USB 3.0 (DT101G3)

Bruce bought two pieces of DataTraveler USB 3.0 128GB (DT101G3) yesterday and found out that it is actually a USB 2.0 equivalent product in terms of data transfer rate (but it is equipped with a USB 3.0 interface indeed).

Kingston lures consumers with the USB 3.0 interface but sidesteps the issue of poor data transfer rate. In terms of this, DataTraveler USB 3.0 (DT101G3) is a fake USB 3.0.

Don’t buy it. I was really disappointed with these sneaky marketing tricks from Kinston.
