Kingston DataTraveler 2000 32GB Encrypted USB Drive Testing: 

To test the performance of the Kingston DataTraveler 2000 Encrypted USB Drive, I will run it through a series of benchmarks to try and provide an accurate representation of the possible performance you could expect. These benchmarks with be mostly synthetic, but will provide a good comparison. In addition, I will be doing a file transfer test of a folder with 1GB of random files that is used to show a real world setup. By using many files of different sizes and not just one huge file, you can get a better idea of the speeds, preventing a single high-speed transfer from occurring. For the synthetic benchmarks, I will be using CrystalDiskMark, Atto, and Anvil Storage Utilities. I will be also measuring the IOPS of the DT2000 by using the File System IO test in Sisoft Sandra. For comparison, I chose to put the DT2000 head to head with another popular PIN-based, hardware-encrypted drive on the market, the Apricorn Aegis Secure Key 3.0 30GB flash drive.

File Transfer:

 

During the synthetic benchmarks, the DT2000 had lower read scores than the Aegis Secure Key, but the write scores of the DT2000 were significantly better. For the IOPs and File Transfer tests however, the Aegis Secure Key took the lead by a slight margin. Overall, the speeds of the DT2000 were very good and even outperformed the transfer numbers set by Kingston.
