Its compact, its light, it has a lot of space and it’s easy to carry. It comes with a 3-year warranty.

It does have a good performance with compress file types though I wish Kingston HyperX DataTraveller had enough space to do a 98.3GB assorted videos folder transfer test. With compressed file types like the ZIP type and the ISO, it tends to take some time depending on the actual compressed file size.

But I am sure 120-240GB will be a new norm for USB 3.0 of both types. It’s just a matter of time. It would be nice to see a Type C cable/ OTG cable as well. This way you can even connect to your smartphones as an extended storage drive. You can always buy one, but we don’t have the required cables to test the compatibility.

At the time of writing, this costs US $121.99, which translates to IN Rs.7,917.15. In India, it’s not listed in any of the online retail sites, but MRP is Rs. 22,990. That’s a lot of difference, and hopefully the actual selling price isn’t something nearly close. You can always buy an SSD with a USB 3.0 casing, and probably save more money compared to the Indian MRP even if you get an SSD twice the size. Of course, you’d lose the form factor.
