Kingston Digital Europe Ltd, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the Kingston® DataTraveler® Elite 3.0. The DataTraveler Elite 3.0 is based on the USB 3.0 standard and is an economical choice for consumers looking for fast data transfers, enabling users to store and transfer their digital library quickly.

“As consumers store and carry more HD video, digital artwork, music and presentations, faster devices are required to keep pace with one’s digital lifestyle,” says Krystian Jaroszynski, Product Marketing Manager, Flash, Kingston Digital Europe. “The new DataTraveler Elite with USB 3.0 technology adds to our USB 3.0 family range and is the perfect solution for those who require faster transfer speeds, without breaking the budget.”

The DataTraveler Elite 3.0 helps consumers save time. For example, in internal testing, DataTraveler Elite 3.0 was approximately two times faster than a standard USB 2.0 Flash drive copying over 22GB worth of data. The testing was done with a single Blu-ray™ movie, over 10,000 photos and more than 4,000 songs.

The DataTraveler Elite 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. Available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities, DataTraveler Elite 3.0 features a sleek, capless and retractable design to protect the USB connector, allowing users to keep the drive with them at all times as it can be easily attached to a key ring or lanyard.
