[CES 2013] Flash drives come in all shapes and sizes, but if you’ve ever wanted a flash drive with a 1TB storage capacity and USB 3.0 connectivity and the speeds that it brings to the table, Kingston has such a device in their lineup called the DataTraveler HyperX Predator, which they are touting as the “world’s largest-capacitiy” USB 3.0 flash drive. What this means is that not only will you be able to read/write files from/onto it at speeds of 240MB/s and 160MB/s respectively, but you will be able to slip it into your pocket or attach it to a keychain as opposed to regular portable hard drives which might not be as pocket friendly. At flash drive will also be made from zinc alloy metal which should add a bit to its durability and as expected, it will be USB 2.0 backwards compatible. Unfortunately at the moment only the 512GB model is available and Kingston expects the 1TB model to be made available later on in the year, and considering that the 512GB model is retailing for $1,750, we’d hate to think just how much the 1TB model will cost. Probably not for everyone but hey, we’re sure that there will be some who are willing to pay for the convenience and slight novelty factor. [Press release]
