Kingston Wants to Put 256GB on Your Keychain

February 18, 2010

Gone are the days of the 512 meg flash drive. No, in just a few short years, thumb drives have gone from a good substitute for CD-Rs to having more storage than many laptops. But 256 gigs? That's gonna cost you.

Inching ever-closer to the Johnny Mnemonic future we were promised so long ago, the DataTraveler 310 USB flash drive offers a mind blowing 256 gigabytes of storage space in a package that is roughly the size of your pinky. Capable of holding up to 54 DVDs worth of data, the DT 310 offers transfer rates of 25MB/sec (read) and 12MB/sec (write).


I'm sure you, like the rest of us, are chomping at the bit to get your hands on this little baby, but you might want to hold off for a sale, because the current MSRP sadly sits at a show-stopping $1108. Apparently 1100 bucks wasn't steep enough. Still, dare to dream, gadget addicts!
