Kingston DataTraveler 150 (64GB)
A fast and reasonably priced flash drive.
- 64GB of storage, fast transfer speeds, low cost per gigabyte
- No encryption software included
The Kingston DataTraveler 150 (64GB) is big, fast and relatively cheap. You'll need to decide whether or not you're comfortable storing this much data on an unencrypted drive, but apart from that it's a great USB flash drive.
Price$ 299.00 (AUD)
It doesn't have flashy extras (excuse the pun) or built-in encryption, but the Kingston DataTraveler 150 provides 64GB (60GB formatted) of relatively fast flash storage for a great cost per gigabyte of $4.98. To put this in perspective, that's half the cost per gigabyte of Lexar's JumpDrive Secure II Plus (8GB) .
To measure the transfer speeds of the DataTraveler 150, we used a folder with 5GB worth of files and a desktop PC with a 7200rpm hard drive. The flash drive achieved an average write speed of 10.63 megabytes per second and a read speed of 28MBps. It achieved an average speed of 8.24MBps when copying files from one part of the drive to another. These are very fast speeds, especially when the price is considered.
However, it's not all smiles and sunshine for the DataTraveler 150. The drive arrives without any software, so it lacks the encryption capabilities seen in the Corsair Flash Voyager (CMFUSB2.0-32GB).
Overall the Kingston DataTraveler 150 is an excellent flash drive with little to fault it. If you're willing to put 60GB of your data onto a single device despite the lack of encryption software, this is a fast and cost-effective option.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
