Kingston has introduced the DataTraveler 200 series, this lineup features the first USB flash drive with a capacity of 128GB! That's a massive amount of storage to carry in your pocket, but with an MSRP of $546 it isn't really affordable. Other models with 32GB and 64GB of storage capacity are also available, for $120 and $213, respectively. The Kingston DataTraveler 200 series features a capless design and comes with password protection software. Read and write speeds are unknown, but given the slow transfer speeds of USB 2.0 it's probably better to get an external hard drive if you really need so much portable storage capacity.
Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of the DataTraveler® 200 (DT200), the world's first 128GB USB Flash drive. The large capacity along with password protection gives users the flexibility to carry critical data with them at all times in a very small form factor.
"The new DT200's robust storage capability lets consumers store complete libraries of music, photos and videos. It is also a great tool for business users who carry around large databases or files," said Andrew Ewing, USB business manager, Kingston®. "The password protection helps safeguard data and requires no admin rights, making the DT200 a terrific solution for the home or office."
The Kingston DataTraveler 200 features a capless design to protect the USB connector when not in use and is enhanced for Windows ReadyBoost™. It is available in 32-, 64- and 128GB capacities. The 128GB drive is build-to-order only. Customers who wish to purchase it can place an order through normal channels (e.g., e-tailers or resellers).
