A very portable, reliable solution for digital file storage.

When I look at digital file storage these days I can’t help but think back to the times I was using thumb drives that were limited to the Megabyte size. Each year, more and more flash drives would enter the market and it was almost a competition to see who could have the biggest storage capacity with the lowest price. I was in awe of the larger sizes – 12GB, 16GB, even 32GB file sizes. I remember the first 64 GB drive I picked up. It was massive in size and price. Those days are long gone, though. Now, we have companies like Kingston developing super small drives like the DataTraveler Micro that is only about the size of a dime.

Kingston DataTraveler Micro Thumb Drive REVIEW

The DataTraveler Micro 3.1 is super small. It was designed as a capless flash drive and is very lightweight. The USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) connection provides a very fast data transfer rate with 100MB/s read and 15MB/s write time. The case is made out of metal and features a small loop on the end for attachment to a key ring or other carrying case. Kingston designed this micro USB drive to be small enough to leave on your laptop when you move from place to place. I wouldn’t recommend that as a permanent location to store your DataTraveler Micro, but when you are moving between classes throughout a long day, or simply changing mobile working locations, it’s nice to know that the drive won’t fall off of your computer.

The DataTraveler Micro actually comes in several different size capacities including 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. I have the 64GB version and it’s plenty large to store just about anything on it. I transferred a couple of Blu-ray quality movies to the drive and they played flawlessly off of it. I also used it as an emergency file backup option. My fiance has a smaller capacity hard drive on her computer and so, she frequently has to dump files since it’s a working computer. This flash drive is an ideal option for people like her who simply need a quick, portable solution to digital file storage.

The Kingston DataTraveler Micro is a great option for anyone who wants to expand their file storage. It’s very fast when transferring files and is built very well. I also feel that it’s very reasonably priced. You can purchase it between $8 – $50 depending on the size you want.
