The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate 3.0 G3 is not as fast as its HyperX brethren while still clocking in at a similar price per GB. Instead, the Ultimate aims to offer a stylish alternative one could take to that next business meeting, for example. It still gives ample performance through the USB 3.0 interface. Even when using USB 2.0, the drive manages to push as much data as the aging interface can handle. Another upside, when it comes to comparing the HyperX and the Ultimate 3.0 G3 drives, is the design of the enclosure: you will never have to worry about losing the cap with the Ultimate 3.0 G3.

This one is a solid choice if its bigger size will not be an issue, especially if you want a beautiful and professional-looking flash drive with both the speed and capacity to impress.
