The Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G3 32GB continues to perform well as we move into our Crystal Disk Mark sequential read and write results. Its read results are competitive, but its write performance is certainly the highlight of the day -- considering this is an encrypted write test. But if there is anything we need to talk about today, it will have to be the stuff on the next three graphs. Let me put it this way: Its write performance is simply outstanding. In the 512K write test, it was twice as fast as the DataTraveler Vault Privacy 3.0 32GB -- and that drive was a winner by several miles already. With a 512K write figure of 76.23MB/s, this is a ridiculously good figure in the midst of drives that normally gets around 1 MB/s. In fact, it was so good, I had to rerun the test several times to ensure I am not hallucinating. As we move into the 4K and 4K QD32 territory, which requires high input/out operations per second (Commonly referred to as IOPS), the Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G3 32GB continues to dominate the competition like a tank on an ant. Seriously, look at the graphs. As far as its read performance is concerned, the company's latest encrypted drive is either the fastest or second fastest in the last two tests. My friends, this is not a typo. If you have tens of thousands of Microsoft Word files to load into your USB flash drive, your time has come.
