Kingston Increases Speed on DataTraveler 410 USB Flash Drive


DataTraveler 410's Faster Read/Writes Follow Speed Increases on Consumer-Level USB Drives


Sydney, Australia - October 07, 2009 - Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced it is increasing read and write speeds on its DataTraveler 410 USB Flash drive to 20MB/sec. read and write. Shipping in capacities up to 32GB, the speedy DataTraveler 410 allows for faster file transfers and is password protected to help keep data secure.




"Power users, enterprise customers and everyday consumers have wanted the ability to store and move large files around faster as USB Flash drives have become more prevalent in everyday use," said Vaughan Nankivell, Regional Manager- Australia and New Zealand for Kingston Technology. "Based on customer feedback, we developed the DataTraveler 410 with higher data transfer rates and security in mind as well as a terrific price point."


The faster read and write speeds make the DataTraveler 410 the ideal drive for high-definition photos, large documents, presentations, music, videos and other data. It includes SecureTraveler software which allows users to create and access a password-protected area of the drive called the "Privacy Zone."


The increased data transfer rates of the DataTraveler 410 follows a recent speed bump of the higher capacities (16- and 32GB) of Kingston's consumer-level DataTraveler I, DataTraveler 101 and DataTraveler 112 drives to read and write speeds of 10MB/sec. These drives offer consumers choices in color, capacity, and whether the USB comes with a retractable body or swivel design.


Kingston DataTraveler USB drives are backed by a five-year warranty and free tech support. For more information, visit
