Kingston's HyperX Predator: The Easiest Way To Misplace 1TB Of Data

Last year at CES Victorinox surprised everyone with a 1TB flash drive that the company estimated would sell for almost $US3000. It sounded too good to be true, and given there's been no sign of it since last January, it apparently was. So can Kingston fill the void left in our hearts with its new HyperX Predator 1TB USB 3 flash drive? Let's hope so.

With promised read and write speeds topping out at 240MB/s and 160MB/s respectively, filling the HyperX Predator with your data won't be a week-long chore. And availability is promised to be as soon as the first quarter of 2013, although pricing info hasn't been revealed just yet. But with the company's 512GB model coming in at $US1750, you can safely expect it cost a small fortune. [Kingston via Financial Post]

    There are people out there that pay this much for flash drives?

    Impressive though, well done Kingston.

      There are people out there that have a lot of money.

    Great to see technology is advancing so far (1TB from previous 256GB). Though for now I'll stick with my 2TB USB3 portable hard drive which was less than $200.

    If I kept this on my keyring it would be worth more than my car o_o

      Lol at this- imagine ringing up your insurance company to claim theft of you USB stick:

      "No, I'm not ringing about my car being stolen, it's my USB stick which was IN my car....yes.....that's right, $3000.....no, I'm not joking...."
