Talking Need to hold all you data in your pocket?

Kingston Technology announced the DataTraveler® HyperX® Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive. DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 is the world's largest-capacity USB 3.0 Flash drive as it will be available in a 1TB capacity later in Q1. It is shipping now in 512GB capacity. DT HyperX Predator 3.0 is the fastest USB 3.0 Flash drive in the Kingston® family, with speeds of up to 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write. It has also achieved SuperSpeed USB 3.0 certification. "Our new DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 allows users to store their entire digital world on a portable USB 3.0 Flash drive," said Andrew Ewing, Flash memory business manager, Kingston. "The large capacity and fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds allow users to save time as they can access, edit and transfer applications or files such as HD movies directly from the drive without any performance lag."
DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 is compliant with next-generation USB 3.0 specifications and is optimized for newer PCs with USB 3.0 ports. Users who work with large video or graphics files, or gamers who like to travel with their entire library will appreciate the drive's speed and capacity. The casing is made of zinc alloy metal for superior quality, shock resistance and high-end design. DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 ships with a custom Kingston key ring and a HyperX valet keychain. It is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 for efficient data transfer rates.
DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive is part of the HyperX Predator family, which represents the highest-performance products offered from Kingston HyperX. The drive is backed by a five-year warranty, free technical support and legendary Kingston reliability.

And I thought 16gb was good enough...

Expected price....$4,000

The 512Gb model, which is available now has a MSRP of $1,780, on sale at Amazon for around $900 though.

This seems like one of those things just to flex Kingston's muscle, it's less a consumer product and more a showcase of technology and expertise in the flash memory market. Not that there's anything wrong with that, since tech companies need to keep pushing the limits.

I mean, you can get 128GB drives for about $1 / GB so the price is nearly doubled on the 512GB model and through the roof even more on the 1 TB model. Given the current storage needs of users and even professionals today, I can't imagine anyone actually needs a 1 TB capacity thumb drive.

Maybe in a few years though.

HI Steve, I just picked up a couple of Crucial M500 960GB, love them, both fast and plenty of storage.
