Kingston DataTraveler Max UFD Series Review: New Type-A Thumb Drive Retains NVMe Performance
Kingston’s new products in the portable flash-based external storage space have met with good market reception over the last year or so. Two products in particular – the Kingston XS2000 and the DataTraveler Max – continue to remain unique in the market with no other comparable products being widely available.

Today, Kingston is expanding the DT Max series with three new drives – all sporting a USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A interface. Read on for a detailed look at the performance and characteristics of the new DTMAXA drives.
