    My mobo has the ability to use any 'normal' SATA port on the mobo as an eSATA - All I need is an actual port on the external part of my case....

    Kingston DataTraveler 150 (64GB)




    RRP
    $299.00



    A fast and reasonably priced flash drive.

    It doesn't have flashy extras (excuse the pun) or built-in encryption, but the Kingston DataTraveler 150 provides 64GB (60GB formatted) of relatively fast flash storage for a great cost per gigabyte of $4.98. To put this in perspective, that's half the cost per gigabyte of Lexar's JumpDrive Secure II Plus (8GB) .


    To measure the transfer speeds of the DataTraveler 150, we used a folder with 5GB worth of files and a desktop PC with a 7200rpm hard drive. The flash drive achieved an average write speed of 10.63 megabytes per second and a read speed of 28MBps. It achieved an average speed of 8.24MBps when copying files from one part of the drive to another. These are very fast speeds, especially when the price is considered.


    However, it's not all smiles and sunshine for the DataTraveler 150. The drive arrives without any software, so it lacks the encryption capabilities seen in the Corsair Flash Voyager (CMFUSB2.0-32GB).


    Overall the Kingston DataTraveler 150 is an excellent flash drive with little to fault it. If you're willing to put 60GB of your data onto a single device despite the lack of encryption software, this is a fast and cost-effective option.
