Kingston DataTraveler 4000 G2 64GB Encrypted USB Drive Testing: 

To test the performance of the Kingston DataTraveler 4000 G2 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 DT4000 G2 by using the File System IO test in Sisoft Sandra. For comparison, I chose to put the DT4000 G2 head to head with its smaller brother, the DataTraveler 2000, and another popular hardware-encrypted drive on the market, the Apricorn Aegis Secure Key 3.0 30GB flash drive.
