DataTraveler Elite G2 Review
Summary: The DataTraveler Elite G2 is speed on a stick!
USB flash drives are the perfect accessory for transferring information from computer to computer and Kingston have just released their new DataTraveler Elite G2 with a design that really thinks outside the square. That is, Kingston have made their DataTraveler Elite G2 not only shock resistant but also water resistant to ensure that your data remains safe at all times.
So whether you accidentally drop this product onto the road or even in a puddle, you can be rest assured that your contents on this flash drive will be safe. The DataTraveler Elite G2 also boasts a metal casing which gives it additional aesthetic appeal and there’s also a blue LED to inform the user when a device is accessing the data. The DataTraveler Elite G2 comes in a variety of sizes that include 32GB all the way to 128GB (reviewed), ensuring that all budgets and user functionality is covered.
Like other devices, the DataTraveler Elite G2 works straight out of the box and to plug it into your USB device, all you need to do is remove the cap. Lastly, the DataTraveler Elite G2 comes with a 5-year warranty from Kingston plus free technical support for additional peace of mind.
Furthermore, the DataTraveler Elite G2 supports both USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB 2.0 devices which not allows for lighting fast transfers with USB 3.0 but ensures it is backward compatible with other devices. The unit also produces some impressive speeds for a portable unit with a read of 265MB/s and a write of 101MB/s with CrystalDiskMark.
