CES 2013: Kingston Wields a 1TB USB Flash Drive [Video]

Paul Lilly

Is that a 1TB flash drive in your pocket or...oh, it IS a 1TB flash drive!

Psst, hey you. Yes, YOU! Take a look at that thumbnail picture over there. Do you see it? Groovy, but do you know what you're looking at? Well, yes, it's a flash drive, but not just any flash drive. That just happens to be the world's largest USB flash drive. It's the Kingston HyperX Predator , and it holds a whopping 1TB of data, which is more than most Ultrabooks. Pretty crazy, right? Come closer and we'll tell you more.

We stopped by Kingston's booth at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and saw a HyperX Predator in person. Kingston told us it will be out in a couple of months.

In addition to holding lots of data, the HyperX Predator is a USB 3.0 drive that shovels data to and fro at around 160MB/s. In other words, it's fast and capacious. Yeah, we can dig it, we just don't know if we can afford it until Kingston sees fit to reveal the drive's MSRP.

Tireless reporter and Online Editor Jimmy Thang spoke with Kingston about a number of other products, including a new line of RAM with redesigned heatspreaders, a DataTraveler USB flash drive , and a new SSDNow V300 Series of solid stated drives (SSDs), which were actually introduced in November 2012.
