Reviews

The computers that supported the Apollo 11 moon mission had 2kb of memory and took up huge amounts of space. That makes Kingston’s HyperX DataTraveler all the more amazing as it comes in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities.

The first thing you notice is that it’s quite a large drive. Apple likes to put the ports on its machines close together, Which means that when the DataTraveler is used the adjacent ports become inaccessible.

It has a USB 3 interface but we could only connect it to a USB 2 port on the Macs. Despite this, the DataTraveler was very fast with transfers running at close to 300Mbps.

Macworld Australia’s buying advice.

If you’ve got the budget and need a fast drive then this is the one for you.
