Gone are the days of slow USB flash drives. I can still remember the time when a flash drive didn't even achieve 2MB/s but these days we're light years ahead of this. Kingston takes things up a notch again with its new DataTraveler Max USB 3.2 Gen 2 Flash Drive. This model is the first flash drive to achieve 1000MB/s read speeds and 900MB/s write speeds. It uses the USB Type-C interface and is offered in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB capacities.
Kingston Digital, Inc., the flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today announced it is shipping DataTraveler® Max, a high performance Type-C®1 USB leveraging the latest USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard. DataTraveler Max (DT Max) delivers record-breaking speeds up to 1,000MB/s read and 900MB/s write2 to make it one of the fastest USB drives on the market and the first of its kind.

DT Max is designed with portability and convenience in mind. The unique ridged casing protects the connector when it is not in use and is easily moved in a single motion. Seamlessly transfer and store large digital files such as HD photos, 4K/8K videos, music and more with top speeds and high capacities up to 1TB3. The addition of a keyring loop and LED status indicator makes the drive ideal for users who need storage on-the-go.

“DT Max offers industry-leading speeds and uncompromised storage space to enable consumers to create and keep up with today’s content demands,” said Carissa Blegen, flash product manager, Kingston. “We deliver unparalleled performance that our customers have come to know and expect, and with this launch we are proud to set a new bar for USB-C flash drives.”

DataTraveler Max is available in capacities 256GB to 1TB and is backed by a five-year warranty with free technical support.
