Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 Review
Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 Flash Drive
Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 features a compact form factor that makes it the ideal companion for devices in which the USB ports are close together. It fits on a key ring or in a pocket to keep it accessible.
Ever look at your basic flash drive and think “Why can’t this be more streamlined?” If so, then the 16GB Kingston DataTraveler Mini 3.0 ($22.99) is for you. This compact drive trims the fat, leaving little more than the USB connector and giving you a drive that you can slip on a key ring or tuck into a pocket without even noticing it’s there.
Our review focuses on the 16GB model we had available for testing, but the DataTraveler Mini 3.0 is also available in larger capacities. The DataTraveler Mini 3.0 can be purchased in 32GB ($41.50 list), 64GB ($79.99 list), and 128GB ($139.00 list) capacities, all with the same compact design and dimensions.

Design and Features
The Mini 3.0 earns its name with a USB 3.0 connection and a chassis that is extremely svelte. The tiny drive measures just 0.23 by 1.67 by 0.5 inches (HWD)—about the size of a piece of gum. It also weighs next to nothing, at just 0.16-ounce, but that’s about as little as our PC Labs scale will register. It’s similar in many respects to the LaCie Porsche Design USB Key (32GB), but with a more colorful design. Our review model is a bright magenta color, but the drive is also available in cyan blue, emerald green, bright red, or gray.
