The Kingston DataTraveler Rubber G2 has a robust (water/shock resistant) form factor and an above average performance profile for a 32GB flash drive. Comparing the performance of the G2 and G1 shows that peak speeds are largely unchanged but average user speeds are significantly faster on the newer G2. We only have three samples of the 32GB G2 at present so we can't form a strong opinion yet. In terms of pricing the G2 is reasonable and is thus currently ranked 8th/27 in the 32GB group test. We will update this review when we have more performance samples.  [Jul '14 USBFlashPro]

The new Adata Dashdrive UV128 has a performance profile that closely matches its older, and recently rebranded, Dashdrive Elite S102 Pro sibling. Comparing the two shows that the drives are nearly identical except for form factor. Personally I prefer a retractable form factor as USB caps are easily lost. Overall in terms of performance the Dashdrive UV128 is slightly above average and in terms of value for money it is also reasonable. [Jul '13 USBFlashPro]
