We like the Kingston Datatraveler R3.0 a lot. It has an extremely well-rounded performance profile, rock solid construction, good real world performance and comes at a below average price for a USB 3.0 flash drive. Kingston have done a great job with this drive and we expect it will do well over the coming months. We could not help but notice several similarities between this drive and the Corsair Flash Voyager both in terms of construction and performance profile. Based on the success of the Voyager, that bodes well for the Kingston R3.0. In absolute terms there are faster drives to be had at this time but only if you are prepared to pay more. [Mar '13 USBFlashPro]

The Intenso Speed Line has a slightly below average performance profile for a USB 3.0 thumb drive but it is priced extremely aggressively making it excellent value for money at this time. As well as representing good value for money the Intenso is also both the smallest and the lightest thumb drive we have seen to date. The only thing to watch out for with this drive is its below average 4K read speed which makes it unsuitable for hosting applications or operating systems. [Aug '12 USBFlashPro]
