Kingston Released The World’s First USB Flash Drive With 2TB
Kingston announced a mammoth 2TB USB drive at this year’s Mobile World Congress (MWC). This one is the company’s and in fact the world’s highest capacity USB flash drive.
The portable USB will cost a whopping $2,273, which is about $1,000 more than the already overpriced 1TB USB storage.
Kingston DT Ultimate GT has a zinc alloy casing which improves its durability, and it uses a USB 3.1 adapter when compared to the newer USB C. The drive offers read and write speeds of over 200 Mbps, which is decent for its massive storage capacity.
At the release event, the Flash business manager Jean Wong said,
“At Kingston, we push the limits of what’s possible. With the DataTraveler Ultimate GT, we empower users to increase their data storage mobility in a highly manageable form factor. This is a terrific follow up to our 1TB drive released in 2013 and by doubling the capacity, users can store and carry even larger amounts of data easily.”
Kingston DT Ultimate GT USB drive is available at a promo price of $1,625, a whole 28% cut from the original retail price.
