After boasting over the 128GB Data Traveler 200 Flash Drive marvel, Kingston has now announced whopping 256GB DataTraveler 300 USB Flash Drive. This high capacity USB flash drive comes with new Password Traveler software that allows creating and access password protected area on the drive called 'Privacy Zone'. At this moment, Kingston Europe is selling Kingston DataTraveler 300 256GB flash drive at an astonishing price of 657 Euros (Rs. 45, 100) which is more than even 256GB SSDs.
Likely to be a proud possession of select few, the new 256GB DataTraveler 300 has the usual retractable pin interface. This 256GB Flash drive allows storing data of up to 10 Blu-ray Discs or 54 single layer DVDs or 365 CDs. Kingston claims that this USB drive offers read speed of 20MB/sec and write speed of 10MB/sec without any stutter in data access.
For Windows Vista and Windows 7 based systems, DT 300 is already ReadyBoost enable and thus will allow Vista users to use this flash drive as memory. Ideal for netbook users who are looking for extended, portable storage which can be easily carried in pocket. However, it's a fact that this pocket toy will literally burn a hole in the pocket.
