The DataTraveler Ultimate excels not because of its headline sequential speeds but because of its respectable and very balanced performance. Regardless of the workload you throw at it, the Kingston will perform well. Physically this drive is much larger than most and it's well constructed. From a value perspective the Kingston falls down a bit because it's one of the more expensive drives. [Jun '13 USBFlashPro]

The 16GB Jumpdrive P10 decimates the existing sequential write speed records. With a sequential write speed of 161 MB/s the P10 is 52% faster than the current record of 106 MB/s which is held by Lexar's previous flagship USB 3.0 Jumpdrive Triton. As yet the P10 is still relatively new but Lexar have an excellent track record for reliability and the P10 is likely to fare well amongst the competition. Within the 16 GB category the P10 is currently the worlds fastest flash drive. That said, if your use case involves a lot of small file operations (most don't), then there are better alternatives available. [Aug '13 USBFlashPro]
