Kingston DataTraveler microDuo Review

0. phoneArena posted on 07 May 2014, 16:09

Today’s modern smartphones are usually stuffed with 16GB of internal storage, but as we all know too well, high definition videos and other multimedia centric files can whittle away at the total. That’s where the Kingston DataTraveler microDuo comes to the rescue, seeing that it’s a pint-sized thing that can come in handy when we’re in a pinch for space. Of course, it looks like any ordinary flash drive, but it’s significantly...

WOW! I didn't knew those existed. Thank you so much for this! Actually is better since you can buy a new card easy to add more storage.

Kingston usuallly offers reliable product, so not a bad addition to the external storage mix. The various micro SD card readers are of course very useful too.

Considering that USB 3.0's Micro connector is quite large (look at the note 3 and Galaxy s5's USB port) I think it would have ruined the aesthetics *laughs*

Very nice the main problem I see is with tablets, WHY don't tablets use the standard micro USB port rather than there silly proprietary ports.

Can we please have standard charging/data ports for phones & tablets PLEASE.

The fact that this device has no iOS device support should be removed as a con. First of all it was apple that decided to go with a custom connector instead of what is now an industry standard connector. The next point is that iOS has no file management system so how exactly would people make use of an external drive. It would be silly for a company to invest money developing a product based on the hope that people would jailbreak their devices to use it.

I prefer the USB OTG cable, and then you can plug whatever you want into it. Hubs with flash drives, mouse, and keyboard. And with a chromecast, you could project your phone screen on your TV, and use your phone as a computer. This is still a decent product, though. I can see it being pretty useful.
