KINGSTON has announced what it claims is the the world’s first 256GB USB flash drive.The Kingston Technology DataTraveler 300 allows the user to carry more files than you can poke a stick at, including a whole database of documents.
Users will also benefit from quick transfer rates and the option to password protects their data, the outfit said.
It will be great for netbook users who want to extend the limited capacity of their machines and carry their entire porn collection with them.
It could also be handy for business consumers who work with large databases, or even designers who need to transfer a lot of large graphic files from one place to another.
Kirsty Miller, consumer product marketing manager for Kingston Technology in Europe said the DataTraveler 300 will enable users to carry up to 365 CDs for example. That’s one album for every day of the year.
Of course it makes it possible for data thieves to steal a whole database without having to swap drives too.
Miller said it demonstrates how far flash technology has developed. Business users and consumers can also safeguard their data by initialising the Password Traveler software which will allow them to password protect their data in a privacy zone without the need of administrator rights.
The drive is enhanced for Windows Readyboost and is backed by a five-year warranty. The downside is that the DataTraveler is built to order only. there has been no word on price yet either. ,let’s wait and see how much useful it is for the people.
