Kingston DataTraveler 400 Review

The Kingston DataTraveler 400 2GB USB flash drive is one of the most useful and secure thumb drives in the Kingston lineup. This drive features a swivel design and capless form factor for easy transport, and keeps your important files encrypted while you're on the move.

DataTraveler 400 drive specifications:

  • Capacities- 2GB, 4GB, 8GB
  • Dimensions - 2.58 x 0.71 x 0.41"
  • Fast - data transfer rates of 20MB/sec. read and 10MB/sec. write
  • Enhanced for Windows ReadyBoost on Vista-based systems
  • Operating Temperature - 32° to 140° F
  • Storage Temperature - -4° to 185° F
  • Simple - just plug into a USB port
  • Guaranteed: five-year warranty


Much to our surprise, the DataTraveler 400 proved to be even faster than expected. Despite the fact that Kingston rates this drive as having a maximum data transfer rate of 20MB per second for read and 10MB per second for write, the DataTraveler 400 performed roughly as well as the faster rated DataTraveler HyperX series of flash drives. As indicated in the benchmark tests below, the drive performed quite well and is nearly capable of maxing out the performance available from the USB port. Our standard benchmarks include ATTO, HDTune, and HDTach.
