Average Bench: 24% (156th of 618)

Based on 440 user benchmarks.  Device: VID 0951 PID 16a2 Model: Kingston DTR30G2

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]
