More powerful than a locomotive. Presently unable to leap tall buildings. But none the less, Kingston's Super-Drive is truly a Piranha of a Peripheral. Larger than most PCs on the planet and tinier that an iPod Mini, this USB flash drive comes with 256-gigabytes and can read data at up to 25 megabytes per second.
However this mega-drive also comes with a mega-price-tag. Be prepared to take a loan out for $1,100 for the Kingston DT-310-Data Traveler which can store up to 54 full-length movies, or enough music that you can play a different CD's worth of tunes each day for a year.
“We saw an opportunity to push the capacity envelope for USB Flash drives in the marketplace. Customer feedback and our research determined that this is a great solution for designers, engineers and architects who have a need to easily store and transport large data files,” Andrew Ewing of Kingston said in a statement. The unit has a five-year warranty and features Password Traveler software, for securing data.
