Kingston Memory, one of the world’s top suppliers of flash and DRAM products, has unveiled the world’s first flash drive with 128GB capacity. The manufacturer positions the new lineup of USB flash memory drives for multimedia enthusiasts as well as business users who need to carry very large files with themselves.

The new Kingston DataTraveler 200-series USB flash memory sticks are available in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities and support Microsoft Windows Vista ReadyBoost technology. At present 128GB is absolutely maximum capacity for USB flash-based storage and many end-users may simply prefer to use the DataTraveler 200/128GB devices as expensive external storage, not a way to transfer information from one place to another.

In fact, even if Kingston DataTraveler 200-series USB flash can provide high-speed USB speed (60MB/s), which is hardly possible considering capacity (30MB/s or so is more likely), it would take about 35 minutes to fully load or unload the 128GB USB flash drive.

“The new DT200’s robust storage capability lets consumers store complete libraries of music, photos and videos. It is also a great tool for business users who carry around large databases or files. The password protection helps safeguard data and requires no admin rights, making the DT200 a terrific solution for the home or office,” said Andrew Ewing, USB business manager at Kingston.

Manufacturer suggested retail price for Kingston DataTraveler 200 32GB is $120, the 64GB version costs $213 and for 128GB flash stick end-users will have to pay $546. The 128GB drive is build-to-order only, customers who wish to purchase it can place an order through normal channels (e.g., e-tailers or resellers).
