Kingston intros 128GB DataTraveler 200

By on June 16, 2009, 8:56 AM
Kingston has introduced the world’s first 128GB USB flash drive, the DataTraveler 200. Their high capacity drive features a capless design and incorporates password protection. In addition to the 128GB model, 32 and 64GB units are available – all of which are Windows ReadyBoost capable. Their dimensions are pretty standard at 70.39mm x 12.52mm x 22.78mm.

The only thing that can match the 128GB DataTraveler 200’s behemoth capacity is its price - a staggering MSRP of $546. That’s not to let the others off lightly. The 32GB model has an MSRP of $120, and the 64GB of $213. If I spent $550 or more after shipping, I'd be tempted to test USB ports with a cheap sacrificial drive. I’m kidding – sort of. Before I spook you, the drives ship with a five-year warranty.

Yeah! totally agree! although, if its readyboost ready, doesn't that mean you could use this with a 32bit vista or 7 and actually have over 100GB of RAM or virtual memory avalible? and for that price, they'd be smart to wait and make it USB 3.0 compatible.
