*Based on Flash Memory Storage Chart
1Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston's Flash Guide at kingston.com/flash_memory_guide.
2Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and usage.
3USB 3.1 Gen 1 performance requires a host device with a USB 3.0 or 3.1 port.
