You Can Now Buy Those Insane 2TB USB Flash Drives

By Holly Brockwell on at

The world's highest-capacity USB flash drive is now available to buy, if you have many, many pounds and you're not the kind of person to lose drives as soon as you get them.

Kingston Technology Company's DataTraveler Ultimate Generation Terabyte, unveiled at CES this year, comes in a choice of 1TB or 2TB, and is surprisingly compact considering. The blocky design comes with USB 3.1 Gen 1 (also known as USB 3.0 - it's complicated), a shock-resistant zinc alloy casing and a 5-year warranty - although that unsurprisingly doesn't cover leaving it on the bus.

Described as "pocked-sized," the drive measures 72mm x 26.94mm x 21mm - those are some fat pockets. However, there's no denying it's a lot more convenient than a portable hard drive.

It's also a lot more expensive, sadly. The 1TB size will run you £795.73 and the 2TB is a trifling £1,371.95. Currently it's only available from Kingston themselves, but it should appear on Amazon UK before long. Hope you've been saving those gift cards your aunty gets you for Christmas.
