Kingston DataTraveler Puts 2TB in Your Pocket
Proving that physical storage devices aren't dead, Kingston took the wraps off of a 2TB thumb drive at CES 2017 in Las Vegas. The DataTraveler Ultimate Generation Terabyte might be a mouthful to say, but it can fit your entire digital life on it. It holds more than a fully tricked out MacBook Pro, in fact.
This little guy measures 2.83 x 1.06 x 0.83 inches. It features a zinc-alloy metal casing that can reportedly survive anywhere between -40 degrees and 185 degrees Fahrenheit. It will reportedly be available starting in February, and will come with a five-year warranty.
Kingston says it can hold up to 70 hours of 4K video, 256,000 16MB photos or 96 PC games. What would you use it for?
The USB 3.1 thumb drive is a follow up to the company's 1TB Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator drive from last year. Neither device is cheap, however. The HyperX Predator comes in either a 512GB or a 1TB version and will also cost you $2,730. It's unclear if that price will come down after the newer, bigger model comes out or if Kingston will double the price on the new model.
