About this deal

These steps, loosely called "formatting", use some of the memory cells within the device and thus reduce the capacity available for data storage by the end user. The drive performed admirably, scoring a superb 1066MBps and 1000MBps on CrystalDiskMark and moving a 10GB file with an average transfer rate speed of 558MBps. The other tests carried out (AJA, ATTO, AS SSD) all underline the true nature of the DataTraveler Max as a 1GBps-class storage device.

Reserving some cells foruse by the flash storage device’s controller, e.g., for storing firmwareupdates and other controller-specific information. The DT Max produced similarly excellent results in our next and last test, IOMeter, especially in 4K random reads and writes. In the 2MB sequential four-thread test, we saw the DT Max exceed Kingston’s maximum read and write claims where it achieved 969MB/s write and 1,006MB/s read. Its write numbers are good enough to compete with those of external NVMe SSDs like the OWC Envy Pro SX SSD. IOMeter (1-Thread)

Some of the flash storagedevice’s listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and is notavailable for data storage. Therefore, you will not see the full capacity. Creating a File AllocationTable (FAT) or other directory. To enable flash storage devices to store and access customer files conveniently, a file management system must be created to allow any device or computer to identify the files stored in the flash storage device. A follow-up with an extra USB Type-A connector might be a welcome addition but that might add to the weight, complexity and price. A smaller body is another distinct possibility given how small the component board is inside. Identifying all defectivecells and taking steps to ensure that no data will be written to or read from adefective cell. The DT Max’s full specifications below contain few surprises. The standard five-year warranty is notable as is the free technical support should you need it. Available capacities

The DT Max’s last physical highlight is its LED status indicator on its topside just to the right of the Kingston logo, a feature that has disappeared off many flash drives. Our inner geek-sense always appreciates knowing when the drive is being accessed. The most common type of file management system for flash storage devices is the File Allocation Table (FAT), which is also used on hard drives.
