If you’re looking for some serious storage in a portable form,

Kingston has you covered with its latest DataTraveler 200 USB Flash drive.

Claimed to be the world’s first 128GB USB Flash drive, the DataTraveler 200 not

only provides plenty of storage, but it also comes with password protection to help

secure important files.

For users who require slightly less storage capacity, the DataTraveler

200 is also available in 32GB and 64GB capacities. The 128GB drive is

build-to-order only and customers can purchase it through normal channels. Read

on for additional details in the press release.

Kingston Technology First to Market with 128GB USB Flash Drive

Large Capacity, Password Protection on New DataTraveler 200

Fountain Valley, CA -- June 15, 2009 -- Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the

independent world leader in memory products, today announced the release of the

DataTraveler 200 (DT200), the world's first 128GB USB Flash drive. The large

capacity along with password protection gives users the flexibility to carry

critical data with them at all times in a very small form factor.

"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,"

said Andrew Ewing, USB business manager, Kingston. "The password

protection helps sa[censored]uard data and requires no admin rights, making the DT200

a terrific solution for the home or office."

The Kingston DataTraveler 200 features a capless design to

protect the USB connector when not in use and is enhanced for Windows

ReadyBoost. It is available in 32-, 64- and 128GB capacities. 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).

The DT200 is backed by a five-year warranty and 24/7 tech

support. For more information, visit www.kingston.com.

Damn, I want one. I currently have a 16GB one and it's not enough. I want at least a 32GB one. I know that 64GB has been out for a while now, but 128GB... holy s***

Nice. I have been doing fine with my 16GB one for now though. Plus, that only cost me $80. $500 is pretty damn expensive.
