article imageKingston makes one terabyte USB3.0 flash drive

By Milton Este     Jan 8, 2013 in Technology
Kingston is definitely not the first to attempt this amazing stunt but the CES 2013 in Las Vegas reveals Kingston is definitely working on a one terabyte USB3.0 flash drive.
Mashable claims Kingston introduced the world's first one terabyte flash drive. However, they probably did not realize Victorinox introduced the Swiss Army one terabyte flash drive a year earlier.
However, that doesn't mean Kingston can't join the club with its own line. The DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 is expected to reach the market later this year, but, for now, it is presently unavailable.
From what Kingston reveals so far, the 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write speed will be expected. In addition, the expected market price will be $2000 and/ up. According to PCWorld, the 512 GB drive by Kingston costs $1750, which is approximately $3.41 per gigabyte while the average is $1.17 per gigabyte.
This flash drive also features a rugged design. Although it may not be anywhere close to LaCie's Xtremkey, the structure offers a compact design, durable structure, and blazing fast speeds.
This is definitely one of the more expensive storage solutions. An earlier release of the 128GB SD Card by Kingston costs roughly $1 per gigabyte, which brings the total to just $1000 give or take for a one terabyte storage solution. (eBay)
