Kingston Cranks Up The Speed On DataTraveler 410 USB Flash Drive
Shipping in capacities up to 32GB, the drive can now support 20MB/sec. read and write rates--a move that follows a recent speed bump of the higher capacities (16- and 32GB) of Kingston’s consumer-level DataTraveler I, DataTraveler 101 and DataTraveler 112 drives to read and write speeds of 10MB/sec. Oddly, there's no word on the technical reasons behind the change, and this definitely doesn't have anything to do with USB 3.0. Speaking of USB 3.0--we can't wait to see a SuperSpeed flash drive. We'll go ahead and surmise that it'll blow even the enhanced version of this drive right out of the water, but until the standard becomes widespread, it's USB 2.0 or bust for now.
