The Kingston DT Ultimate 32GB G2 is a very fast drive as our tests have found and it clearly comes as a quality product with quite a bit of good engineering and design behind it. So, what’s all the cost for such a fast drive? Last time it was listed on Newegg, it sold for $84.99 which is by all means not cheap at all. But once you begin to consider that the drive comes with a 5 year warranty.
This drive is currently sold out at Newegg, so it won’t be easy to find for that price. But there are equally as competitively priced drives out there from Patriot and Mushkin for $10 less that claim similar or better speeds than what Kingston has claimed. More likely than not, though, you will probably get the same or worse performance when compared to the Kingston DT Ultimate 32GB G2. As of right now, though, we feel that these drives are just slightly out of reach of the average consumer as you won’t find many people spending that much money on a USB drive.Conclusion
The Kingston DT Ultimate 32GB G2 is a fantastic USB drive that surpasses even our and Kingston’s expectations for the drive. Although the drive itself may be on the pricey side, the performance and quality that you get from this drive are nearly worth every penny. There’s no doubt that these drives would be a better value if they were just slightly less expensive, but we have a feeling that Kingston will likely release a slightly slower drive for a cheaper price soon.
Based on our experiences with this drive we’re happy to award the Kingston DT Ultimate 32GB G2 with our Editor's Choice Prosumer award.
