World's First 256 GB USB Flash Drive

Posted July 20, 2009 at 10:08am by iClarified
Kingston's new DataTraveler 300 USB Flash drive carries the highest capacity available on the market.

The flash drive holds 256GB of data and features Password Traveler software, which allows you to create and access a password protected, secure area of the drive called a “Privacy Zone”, which can take up to 90% of the drives capacity.

256 GB of data, allows you to store:
* 10 Blu-ray discs (~25 GB each)
* 54 DVD discs (~4.7 GB each)
* 365 CD discs (~700 MB each)

Fast transfer speeds of up to 20 MB/sec read and 10 MB/sec. write, reduce the transfer times and allow users to access their data directly from the drive, without stuttering movies or slow application response.

The DataTraveler is not currently available in the US; however, if it does become available it will sell for around $900.

If it actually sells for 900.00 US dollars, (sensored). Makes more sense to buy a 250gb passport for 60.00 US or a 500gb passport for 120.00 US yeah, 900 is insanely ridiculous, might as well not even make it.

I agree it'd be better to buy a notebook hardrive and an enclosure. They're really small and it'll be much much cheaper.
