This is the third incarnation of what was once kingston's flagship flash drive. This version has a full metal body and comes with a retractable head, an improvement over the G2. In terms of speed the drive has strong sequential headline figures but they are not chart topping by any means. The 4K random write scores are very disappointing, surprisingly they even lag the older G2. We don't think the G3 makes a lot of sense at its current price of £50. As other manufacturers release their second and third gen. drives, there will be far better deals to be had later on this year. At the moment the brand new Corsair GT Turbo looks like it might be a contender but the sure thing is the chart busting Sandisk Extreme which redefined 4k random write speed expectations. [Feb '13 USBFlashPro]

The 32GB Jumpdrive P10 is one of the fastest flash drives I have seen in 2013. The P10 has exactly the same, superb, physical construction as its predecessor, the Jumpdrive Triton. Internally the 32 GB version of the P10 has been significantly upgraded and now yields approximately 75% better overall performance than the Triton. Lexar have managed to do this without a significant price increase which is welcome news considering the already relatively high price of the Triton. Unfortunately it's not all good news because despite its record breaking sequential speeds the P10, like the Triton, struggles in the area of small 4K random writes. If you are planning to use this drive to copy small files or to host applications you will likely be disappointed otherwise for tasks such as copying video and audio files this is one of the fastest flash drives you can currently buy. [Aug '13 USBFlashPro]
