Portable storage devices like USB thumb drives have been around over the last decade or so. Despite this, we are starting to see a much higher use from such drives in the last few years, especially with capacity on them being larger and faster. However, sometimes storing data on such drives can increase the risk of having your data easily lost or stolen. Well, today we are going to be looking at a new Kingston 64GB DataTraveler Locker+ G3 USB 3.0 thumb drive that aims to help with that. What's so different about this drive? It includes some extra security which requires a password to access the drive! Kingston released a software based USB drive that will only give you access to the drive once the password you set up is input. The password encoded drive will help secure all the files stored, which will give you piece of mind that your data is safe for traveling or normal every day use. Today as we continue forward, we are going to test the Kingston 64GB DataTraveler Locker + G3 in multiple scenarios to evaluate the performance, security and reliability of the drive.
During our visit with Kingston at CES 2014 this year, we had a chance to sit down with them to talk about the new and up-coming flash memory cards that are designed for HD Media use. With the advancing and growing media recording industry, faster and more reliable flash memory cards are on high demand, especially those looking for high capacity to store everything on one card. With the standards of 1080p recording, Ultra HD 2160p and 3D/2K&4K resolutions on the horizon, the number of pixels on recording devices can no longer suffice with the slower and lower capacity memory cards. It has been a couple of months since the initial talk and today we finally got our hands on the Kingston 64GB SDXC Class 3 UHS-I U3 flash memory card. Kingston developed this particular card in three available sizes, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The last one will be the memory card we take a look at today. Kingston was also nice enough to send us the Kingston Mobile Lite G3 SD and Micro-SD card USB 3.0 reader as an extra bonus to be able to test the memory card today. With the speed advancements in the SDXC memory card, we wanted to make sure there are no bottlenecks.
