Kingston launches 256GB USB flash drive

DataTraveler 300 world's biggest USB memory stick

Kingston today released the world's largest capacity USB memory stick: a flash drive with 256GB worth of storage.

According to Kingston, the Kingston DataTraveler 300 is available for sale in the UK, although product searches for both the device's name and part number - DT300/256GB - are at this point failing to turn up any live vendors.

Kingston DataTraveler 300The 70.68x16.9x21.99mm Kingston DataTraveler 300 includes the Password Traveler security software for Windows and enjoys claimed transfer rates of up to 20 MB/sec read and 10 MB/sec write, according to Kingston.

With a five-year manufacture warranty, the robust Kingston DataTraveler 300 has a capless design and enjoys 24-hour a day tech support, so the biggest danger to your data may be losing such a small device. And that would be a costly mistake: the Kingston DataTraveler 300 will sell for £665 inc VAT. At £2.60 per GB, this is considerably more expensive than an average USB memory device.

According to Kingston the DataTraveler 300 is enhanced for Windows Readyboost to give Windows Vista systems a performance boost.
