Kingston reveals first 256GB jump drive

Kingston logoKingston today quietly set a record in the storage world by launching the DataTraveler 300, the world's first stick-sized 256GB USB drive. It holds twice the storage of recent record setters from Super Talent and others, and in some cases allows holding as much content as a notebook hard drive; about 10 single-layer Blu-ray movies should fit, Kingston says. It's also relatively quick with 20MB per second peak read speeds and 10MB write speeds.

The capacity is recognized by both Macs and Windows PCs, though only the latter get special password protection software that can lock down information on up to 90 percent of the drive. Kingston is currently only offering the DataTraveler 300 in the UK, where it costs the equivalent of about $900, but should eventually bring it to the US.
