Kingston launches world's largest flash drive

Kingston 2 TB USB Flash drive

Yes, Kingston today unveiled a new pendrive which can hold up to 2TB data. The USB flash drive, as the name suggests, offers 2TB of storage space, which is accompanied USB 3.1 Gen 1 (USB 3.0) performance. However, when external hard drives came along with their 500GB and up capacity, flash drives lost their place as the premier storage options for both casual and professional consumers.

KINGSTON TECHNOLOGY has become the first company to offer a USB stick with a whopping 2TB of storage.

At CES 2017 in Las Vegas, storage device maker Kingston announced the DataTraveler Ultimate GT (Generation Terabyte), which is a 2TB USB flash drive - what we call a "memory stick" in the United Kingdom - that is big enough to store the entire contents of your hard drive, the full extent of your rare MP3 music collection, family photos, movies or even several Blu-ray TV series boxsets. Unfortunately, it doesn't have the 24-pin Type-C connector, which is fully reversible.

Pricing has yet to be revealed by Kingston, but don't expect either model to be particularly cheap.

Still, the high spec 2TB version should provide more than enough of a boon to justify interest, at least. However, given that the HyperX DataTraveler Predator's original RRP was a whopping £1,169.99 at launch, and even now, two and a half years later, will cost you the wrong end of £580, then when the device is launched in February, we could be in for something of a shock. It's called the Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate GT, and it's a monster. If not, that amount could easily double, but this is just speculation at this point.

"At Kingston, we push the limits of what's possible", said Jean Wong, Flash business manager. Big things in small packages, basically. "With the DataTraveler Ultimate GT, we empower users to increase their data storage mobility in a highly manageable form factor".
