Kingston DataTraveler R500

With the increasing popularity of USB 3.0, it seems as though USB drives are only getting faster. Sometimes however, what you really want is more capacity. The Kingston DataTraveler R500 may not be the quickest flash drive around, limited to USB 2.0 instead of USB 3.0, but it is definitely one of the largest, offering a staggering 128GB of storage capacity.


In our testing we found that the Kingston DataTraveler R500 produced decent read and write speeds, with read speeds, of 30 MBps and write speeds of 21 MBps. While these figures aren’t even close to the performance of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 drives, they still represent good speeds from a USB 2.0 drive with so much more capacity.

The best thing that the DataTraveler R500 has going for it is its enormous data capacity. 128GB is a lot of storage space, and while that vast amount of data might be accessed quicker with a USB 3.0 connection, there’s still a lot to be said about having that much storage space on hand wherever you go.

Features and Design

The DataTraveler R500 is a high-capacity USB drive about the size of a cigarette lighter. Its two-toned black and orange color scheme makes it highly visible, and a tether point on the back of the USB makes it easy to attach a key ring or lanyard. Measuring 0.5 by 0.9 by 2.8 inches, the DataTraveler R500 may crowd out neighboring ports, but it’s still fairly slim and weighs only 1oz.

Its rubber enclosure provides the much needed protection against the hazards of everyday life, from dropping your keys on the floor to leaving your USB in your pocket as it goes through the laundry. The R500 also incorporates a slight tapering from front to back, and the back end is narrow enough that the cap can be slipped over the end when the USB is in use.

The USB comes preformatted to FAT32, meaning that it’s ready to go out of the box on virtually any system, whether it’s a Linux, Mac or Windows computer. There’s also no extraneous software included, so you get nothing but uncluttered storage without the hassles of setting up a password or dealing with management software.
