32GB Kingston Flash Drive Reviewed

There’s usually a point where carrying around a portable hard disk makes more sense than trying to cram as many gigabytes into as small a volume as possible. But the Kingston Data Traveler 150 looks like a good buy for anyone wanting to store a lot of data (32GB) within their pocket—and copy it to and from USB-capable devices quickly:

The Kingston family’s latest USB flash drive addition comes to the market with great read and average write performance, great for those of you looking for vast amounts of easily portable storage space without necessarily breaking the bank either. Built with a solid case and a great look I applaud Kingston’s continuous ability to offer some of the finest and most robust flash drive designs on the market and thus the Data Traveler 150 naturally comes highly recommended.

One aspect reviewer everythingUSB should’ve covered was reliability. What’s the point of 32GB of memory, if even a minor, data-wiping error is likely?

    I also came across 32GB Kingston flash drive for cheaper prices around Pollachi. I don’t know whether they or duplicate or Chinese makes. I saw one website, where it is advertised – 100 Kingston 32GB for 1000$ from China. In such case, one pen drive costs only 10$. Kingston Chinese make or Chinese Kingston Make… God in heaven knows.

    hi srinivas – the problem is that these counterfeit drives are not 32GB – almost all are 1GB 2GB or 4GB – the largest capacity we have come across is 8GB. Your files may and folders may appear to be there as the name and size are written to the index but you can’t access them because they are not really there. See my fightflash blog and another wordpress blog called sosfakeflash for more information.

  8. fightflashfraud says:

    Oh, that was so clever of you dirty_slayer. It seems to me that you are probably a worse person than those who fraudulently reprogram flash drives. These are often people who scratting for a living and resort to fraud as a result – very wrong, but understandable. From what you say you are certainly a worse person than the poor soul that sold you a fake (the vendor may not have had any idea that it was fake) and trusted you to return with either the item or the money to pay for it. Shame on you!

    HI All,
    Today somebody tried to cheat me by selling 32 GB pen drive in 500 Rs. just outside my office, I told him that I’ll chk. it before buying, and so I took it and checked by seeing properties, which was showing 32 GB offcourse, and I tried to copy some data to it, and back to my PC, it all worked..
    But after giving him the money I found out that more than 500MB of data is not getting copied to it. So I called that guy to sell me other 4 drives also, so that i can give it to my friends, and guess what he came back, hoping for more money… But we caught him and took back the money whi I gave him a little while before.
    So all’s well that ends well…
    But learning from that incident is. Don’t buy Pendrives especially Kingston, if someone sells it to you in such a lower price… They all are FAKE… So please spread out the word to your friends…. asits happening worldwide…
    I searched on this topic and my foundings are that its a very big Racket… and its not only happening in India(Mumbai, Pune, delhi, Bangalore etc…), but its happening in UK, Australia and in some other countries too…
    Ppl are selling it on Ebay also…. These all Pen Drives are FAKE…….
