DataTraveler 80 M USB-C : Design and Features

If you own a Type-C device such as a notebook, Android smartphone, or the iPhone 15 Series, the Kingston DataTraveler 80 M is the perfect USB flash drive for you. It supports USB 3.2 Gen 1 and comes with a USB-C interface, eliminating the need for adapters. The design of the DataTraveler 80 M is simpler compared to the Exodia Onyx, with a plastic casing that can be easily turned on and off. It also features a key ring slot for added convenience.

The DataTraveler 80 M comes in three storage capacities: 64GB, 128GB, and 256 GB. It offers fast transfer speeds of up to 200MB/s read, ensuring quick and efficient data transfers. The compact dimensions of 54.18mm x 21.81mm x 1.60mm and a weight of only 6 grams make it highly portable. Whether you need to transfer files between devices or create backups, the DataTraveler 80 M is a reliable storage solution.

To test the performance of these USB flash drives, we used various benchmarking tools. 

In the ATTO Disk Benchmark, which measures read and write speeds, both models showcased impressive performance. The Crystal DiskMark test, which measures read and write speeds with compressible data, further confirmed the excellent performance of both drives.

Another benchmarking tool we used was Anvil’s Storage Utilities, which tests transfer speeds and IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second). The DataTraveler 80 M performed admirably in this test, showcasing their efficiency and reliability.
