PostSubject: World's first 256 GB USB Flash drive!   Thu 23 Jul - 23:32

I remember my first USB thumb drive. It was a 256MB Samsung number,
about the size of an old, Pez-dispenser-shaped iPod Shuffle (with the
same annoying habit of blocking the USB port right beside the one you
plugged it into). That was about six years ago, and in that time
solid-state memory has made a lot of progress. As in,
three-orders-of-magnitude progress.

Flash-memory purveyor
Kingston now sells a thumb drive with a capacity 256 gigabytes: the
DataTraveler 300. Yep, 256GB, all in single plastic wafer less than 3
inches long. According to the product page, that's the equivalent of 10
Blu-ray Discs, 54 DVDs or 365 CDs. It truly is a new era.

Kingston plans to make DT300 available only in Europe and Asia, priced
at £567, or $938. Message to anyone thinking of buying one: Don't. We
sometimes overuse the word "insane" here at DVICE, but as a descriptor
for that price it's perfectly appropriate.
