DataTraveler 100 G3 USB 3.0 16GB - Terrible 2 years ago.
16GB USB Flash Drives

— Looks like there are two versions of the drive older one made in Taiwan and newer one in China and only the one made in Taiwan is good (~105 MB/s steady read testing with Victoria) while the one made in China is pretty abysmal (~36 MB/s steady read), both have the same product code (DT100G3/16GB) and AFAIK only way to identify them is to look at the writing on USB shield and avoid the newer product. Feels like a bait and switch, not cool Kingston...
