Kingston DataTraveler USB Flash Drive Review

This post may contain affiliate links, view our disclosure policy for details.

USB drives which are vital to collect, store, and transfer information even daily for many of us! Especially for teachers. The new Kingston DataTraveler USB Flash Drives exclusively come with urDrive software which is a free pre-loaded application for organizing and exploring apps, games, and music. It transforms your Kingston USB drive into an active storage device as opposed to the “old school” method of simply storing and transferring data. PLUS it comes with online storage!
This really is a pretty awesome set up. Now you can access your bookmarks, social media pages, photos, and more from anywhere you have your Kingston urDrive Software at! No more worrying about logging out of your accounts in public places. It’s all accessed through the app on your software! Check out this video below to learn a little more:
Pretty awesome huh? I let my husband test drive this software out since he’s our technology guru in the house and he absolutely loved it. Not only is the USB drive we received to try an 8 GB which is an awesome size for storing tons of information, it was perfect for fitting on his keychain. However, it is very small so be careful not to loose it! The speed of upload was very quick as well.There were 9 different apps which directs you to personalized things:


1.      Norton PC checkup
2.      Maxthon Now – Browse the internet. This program
will save your favorites, bookmarks, and passwords for use on any computer.
3.      V-Drive – File backups 6 free GB of online
storage. Can sync devices to automatically backup to this.
4.      Foozkids- allows your kid to safely browse the
internet at anyone else’s computer with your knowledge of where they have
been!! (AWESOME AWESOME program!)
5.      Games – allows you to download many different
games for free trials. Can easily purchase games that travel with you.
6.      Store – Allows you to purchase apps.
7.      Facebook – Links to your own facebook account
without having the other persons computer being able to access your past info.
8.      Youtube – allows direct link to youtube.
9.       Twitter– links to your own tTitter account without having someone elses computer being
able to access your past visits.


Overall – we both highly recommend!! It’s a very versatile product for many different people and occupations. An absolutely must for college students and a huge benefit for teachers and others who need quick access to their files at many different locations. The promo prices I’ve seen floating around are fantastic (about $10) which is a great deal for just a flash drive let alone this useful software!! We will be using ours daily for my husband (a teacher) as well as when we travel for our kids to use their Fooz account!

Share with your friends!
