"The new DT200's robust storage capability lets consumers store complete libraries of music, photos, and videos.," said Andrew Ewing , USB business manager at Kingston. "It is also a great tool for business users who carry around large databases or files."

Also available in 32GB and 64GB capacities, the DT200 series boasts read and write speeds of up to 20MB/s and 10MB/s, respectively. Other features include a capless design and password protection.
