It gives me great pleasure and a relief to mention this every time I put up a review because it is a hard fact. In a country where you get minimum hardware support from the manufacturers to review their own products and others on behalf of the readers, its some companies such as Asus, Gigabyte, Kingston, Western Digital and now Coolermaster who give me hardware support by updating my test rig no strings attached.



I would like to thank

  • Gigabyte India for providing Gigabyte 890GPA UD3H Rev 1.0 motherboard
  • Asus India for providing Asus 990FX Sabertooth motherboard
  • Kingston Taiwan for providing hardware support with memory kits and SSD drive.
  • WD India for providing WD 300GB HLFS Velociraptor Hard Drive.
  • Coolermaster India for providing Coolermaster GX450 RS-450-ACAA-D3 Power Supply

AIDA 64 Access Time (Block Size= 64KB)

Read Access Time

Average read access in all 3 conditions (min, max and average) is much lower than DataTraveler G2, however HyperX’s 64GB counterpart takes a hit in Write Access time.

Write Access Time

Write Access seems to be the weakest point of this drive. I find it strange because, HyperX is a series which should exceed almost all mainstream/Value series flash drive, but it takes a lot more milliseconds compared to the G2 counterpart.

Transfer Tests

While there’s a significant improvement in larger compressed files, Smaller and Compressed & non-compressed data is a little bit of a notch below. Its not expected since a 64gig drive. Smaller capacity drives have an advantage in this type of file transfers, provided it equally good enough.

There’s a significant increase in sequential read and write, with a bit of an improvement on 512K read rest, however the rest is a different story.

Kingston’s DT Ultimate G2 32GB (left) has an advantage on 512K, 4K and 4K with QD32 random write speed over Kingston’s HyperX’s DT 64GB counterpart (Right).

  1. arey but where will i get this here? not even flipkart has listed this product at all.

  2. kingston should really work on USB storage devices with retractable ports. people accidentally loose the caps and this is a drive many wouldn’t like that. Corsair does that. kingston should do it too.
