Kingston DataTraveler 150 32GB

Packaging:

The Kingston DataTraveler 150 comes packaged like every other flash drive around. This means you'll need some serious scissor ninja skills to get it open and don't expect the packaging to look nice afterwards.

 

A Closer Look:

In all fairness to Kingston, orange isn't my favorite color, and the fact that it only comes in that color is slightly disheartening. The DataTraveler 150 makes me think of that big kid in grade school with a silly name like Francis. If you ever made fun of his name he would ring you up a flag pole and generally beat you down. The DataTraveler 150 does this to other flash drives. The size on this drive is enormous (it also comes in an even crazier sized 64GB model). What this drive has in sheer capacity size, it also complements in speed, which is a surprise for drives of this size. You will find out all of the juicy details about that in the next section. The drive comes formatted in FAT32 out of the box. I consider this sacrilege for a drive of this size. I understand Kingston wanting to reach maximum compatibility for the largest audience, but the whole point of having a drive of this size is to be able to store large files, which means formatting it to NTFS. FAT32 can only store files less than 4GB in size, which severely limits what you can store on the drive.

Another thing that is really nice about the DataTraveler 150 is that it isn't massive in dimension. It's about the same size as a car key, which means it won't take up half of your pocket. It's still bigger than say the ATP ToughDrive, but that is the price you pay for the capacity.
