I purchased this flash drive to go with my new HP Envy 15, which has USB 3.0. This video review goes over the build quality and the speeds I got using several different testing methods. Watch the video for the specifics.

Conclusion:
This is a great flash drive if you have USB 3.0 and will be transferring very large files, such as .iso and large videos.
It's not worth the money if you If you still have USB 2.0, or if you have 3.0 but only transfer small files. However, if you are willing to put up with files writing slowly to the drive, and you are transfering the same small files from the drive to many computers, this will work for that.

UPDATE December 8, 2012
I just transferred 25 GB from the Kingston to my new Retina Macbook in 1:43. FAST!

I tried to purchase this DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 twice from 2 different sellers on Amazon.com and once it was actually fulfilled by Amazon. Each time the USB drive was fake.

How to tell if it is real or not

When it is in the packaging:
- The entire package is plastic wrapped (the kind you have to cut open with scissors) because the drive sits freely on top of the paper insert that describes the drive. Fake drives only have the drive itself encased in plastic and you can touch the paper because the plastic covering is sandwiched between the front and back.

When it is out of the packaging:
- Check for the light blue color inside the USB connector (fake ones have black plastic) and if the silver part of the USB connector is laser etched.

See http://www.kingston.com/en/support/product_verification and http://legacy.kingston.com/company/counterfeit.asp

I've given up on buying one from Amazon.

Edit: after working with Kingston counterfeiting ( Counterfeit@kingston.com ) twice, the third order from Amazon was genuine. They explained that a fake USB drive was returned and got into the Amazon genuine supply. They assured me that Amazon had purged any fake USB drives from the warehouse before I ordered it.

Hi Lawrence,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We're sorry for the issue experienced with your purchase. Kingston understands that there exists a counterfeit product market and works to reduce or eliminate counterfeits available on the market. To avoid counterfeit product, Kingston strongly recommends purchasing directly from authorized resellers, e-tailers and/or retailers (http://www.kingston.com/us/wheretobuy). Amazon.com is an authorized reseller but they do allow other sellers on their site to sell products through the Marketplace which can lead to this situation. Thank you for reporting the issue to us, we have taken steps to resolve it. If you have not already, you may also want to alert Amazon Customer Service: http://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html/ref=hp_navbox_hspot_prob?nodeId=557204

This drive is amazingly fast on really large files. I transferred several 2GB files to the drive via a USB 3.0 hub at a sustained rate of 127Mb/sec. The same files were read back to my SSD C: at 151Mb/sec. Smaller files are a different matter. They write to the drive at anywhere from 120Kb/sec to 1.6Mb/sec and read back at about 10Mb/sec. By comparison, my 64Gb Patriot Xporter writes large files at around 11Mb/sec and reads at about 28 Mb/sec. Smaller files wrote at from 12Kb/sec to 3.5Mb/sec and read at about 16Mb/sec.

The drive was plug and play on my Sandy Bridge system. I stuck it in and started copying.

I bought the drive to copy a large set of large database files between non-networked computers rapidly. For this purpose I am blown away. I have Hitachi 7200rpm 2TB hard drives that only achieve around 56Mb/sec on a direct copy of these same files. When I saw the "speedometer" stable at 127Mb/sec I called my friend to exclaim to him how fast this drive is. I should note here that it is still a fast drive in a USB 2.0 port -- for 2.0. It transfers at about 25Mb/sec for large files.

I wanted to give the drive 4 stars because of the huge difference between the smaller files and the larger ones. However, this is state of the art and it deserves 5 stars for that.

I used TeraCopy for all my speeds.

I received this product, tested the speeds and they were comparable to a standard speed drive. After more test and email I was sent another drive by the Kenny Store ( through amazon of course ). I found the same issue, after contacting Kinston and send pictures and test results we concluded both drives are counterfeit. Amazon was very understanding and resolved the situation in a timely manner. Do not but from the Kenny Store.

It does what it was designed to do - run screaming fast in a USB-3 port. I long/full formatted the entire 64GB unit as NTFS in 8 minutes using an EVGA PC motherboard SuperSpeed USB-3 port (completed 8GB/min or 133MB/sec , Bytes, not bits) - that's like writing about a full CD worth of data in 5 seconds! That is writing (not faster reading) at about 22% the maximum theoretica; USB-3 bus speed. In comparison, it takes a regular 4GB USB-2 Kingston G3 ($5) stick 15 minutes for the same operation (32x slower). If you can afford a new PC or laptop with USB-3 ports, you must also have one of these to make good use of that port. It is worth noting that after the massive 64GB high-speed format, the stick was very warm and surprised me when I grabbed it to extract it from the port - guess that's what all that blue cooling metal wrap is for! The 133MB/sec format speed is right at the advertised write speed, so I'm not sure about some reviewers' complaints of mis-advertising, even though I recognize "real data writing" could be slower for multiple files or many small files. At some point, it becomes difficult to go any faster because you cannot adequately dissipate the heat. Recommended if needed, and if affordable - esp. for frequent and/or very large file transfers. Kingston makes great memory products of many types to suit many use and price-point needs. Hyper-X 3.0 is their new flagship, replacing their previous Hyper-X USB-2 unit (which I also own). As is often true, Amazon rocks again with the best price - thanks!
