Kingston continues its annual tradition of adding a new member to its DataTraveler Chinese Zodiac line up with its latest but limited Year of the Rooster DataTraveler. For those who has been collecting the Chinese Zodiac DataTraveler drives since the Year of the Rat design, this is definitely a new and must have addition to your collection.
We got our hands on one here at Tech Critter’s lab thanks to Kingston Technology and of course, we’ll be on our usual routine for USB flash drive to check out what kind of performance we can expect from this adorable USB flash drive.
- Capacity: 32GB
- Interface: USB 3.1
- Read: 100MB/s
- Write: 10-15MB/s
- Casing Material: Aluminum
- Package Includes: 1 x Kingston CNY 2017 Rooster 32GB Pendrive
- Warranty: 5 Years Limited Warranty
A wild guess we would like to make, is that Kingston might have the plan to complete the full cycle and you’ll probably have to pass down your collection to your grandchild to complete the collection of 120 unique edition as a whole.
Real World Test
If you’re a collector of the Kingston Chinese Zodiac DataTraveler, adding the Year of the Rooster edition to your collection is already a 100% sure and we don’t even have to convince you with our recommendation. As for those who of you who just wanted to use it as your daily USB flash drive that slides easily into your wallet, the data writing speed of 20MB/s average is something you might want to consider. While the reading speed is great at 120MB/s average, transferring large files into the drive alone can be a pain if you’re in a hurry.
