    Kingston DataTraveler vs. SanDisk Cruzer Micro Flash USB Drive shootout comparison

    I hope this gets picked up by the search engines because I couldn't find this info anywhere when I searched for it.

    • Kingston 8GB DataTraveler Style, Black DTYLB/8GB
    • Kingston 4GB DataTraveler Style, Black DTYLB/4GB
    • Kingston 4GB DataTraveler 100 - DT100/4GB
    • SanDisk 4GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ6-4096-A11

    If in doubt, get the old Kingston DataTraveler 100 - DT100, not the new DataTraveler Style. It appears to transfer faster than the other 3 I tested.

    The SanDisk 4GB Cruzer comes with auto-start software on it, which might be annoying if you don't use it and just want to copy-paste data. Even after I completely removed the software, SanDisk Cruzer would not play any songs when I plugged it into my car radio's USB port whereas all three Kingston's would.

    I was surprised that the old Kingston DataTraveler was faster. As much as 20% faster.
