Kingston Officially Outs 2 Terabyte Thumb Drive

Want to store literally all your digital files in one place? Kingston has you covered – the brand has officially unveiled the biggest capacity consumer thumb drive yet, dubbed the DataTraveler Ultimate Generation Terabyte.

Don’t be fooled by the somewhat ungainly name – this USB thumbdrive can store 2TB worth of data, or around 70 hours of 4K video. Kingston has a nifty little chart that shows you how much of a particular type of data you can store inside this thing here. Since it’s not your usual thumb drive, Kingston has encased it in a zinc-alloy exterior for shock protection. The thumb drive has a USB 3.1 connection, which makes transfer speeds a little slow if you’re moving a voluminous amount of data.

There’s a smaller 1TB model for this particular flash drive, though Kingston has not priced both as of press time. They will drop in stores in February though possibly along with exorbitant price tags as well.

  1. Kingston memory has never failed me in the past 10 years of using them. I still have my 16GB thumb drive from 2007. Works great and I still use it.
