Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the Kingston DataTraveler Elite 3.0. DataTraveler Elite 3.0 (Kingston part #: DTE30/xxGB) is based on the USB 3.0 standard and is an economical choice for consumers looking for fast data transfers, enabling users to store and transfer their digital library quickly.

"As consumers store and carry more HD video, digital artwork, music and presentations, faster devices are required to keep pace with one's digital lifestyle," said Andrew Ewing, Flash memory business manager, Kingston. "With more PCs shipping with USB 3.0 ports, the new DataTraveler Elite adds to Kingston's USB 3.0 family and is the perfect solution for those who require faster transfer speeds without breaking the budget."





DataTraveler Elite 3.0 helps consumers save time. For example, in internal testing, DataTraveler Elite 3.0 was approximately two times faster than a standard USB 2.0 Flash drive copying over 22 GB worth of data. The testing was done with a single Blu-ray movie, over 10,000 photos and more than 4,000 songs.

DataTraveler Elite 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. Available in 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB capacities, DataTraveler Elite 3.0 features a sleek, capless and retractable design to protect the USB connector, allowing users to keep the drive with them at all times as it can be easily attached to a key ring or lanyard.

Kingston's DataTraveler Elite 3.0 is backed by a five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.

Those prices are awful, I got my Team X101 32GB USB 3.0 drive from Newegg for $48 total with shipping when they had a $5 instant rebate. 120MB/s read and 70MB/s write (althrough write is more like 40 - 50 MB/s).
