Kingston ships 32GB DataTraveler 150
Kingston is a name associated with memory products, and we have news that the company will begin to ship its high capacity 32GB DataTraveler 150 USB Flash drive. Also known as the DT150, this USB flash drive model boasts the largest capacity in Kingston’s entire line of DataTraveler USB drives, which is almost as convenient as toting around a portable hard drive since many large files (and I mean huge – even those bigger than 8GB) won’t exactly spill over 32GB, right? Perfect for folks who want to merge work-related content and personal digital content on the same drive, although it can be quite a pain trying to get all the data inside organized properly. My 4GB USB flash drive is already in a mess with files all over the place sans a proper folder structure.
Don’t worry about which computing platform you’re running on – Kingston’s DataTraveler 150 plays nice with Windows Vista, XP and Windows 2000, Mac OS X 10.3 (and above) and Linux 2.6 (and above). Just like all the other USB flash drives from Kingston, the DT 150 will come with a five-year warranty and round the clock tech support just in case (touch wood) anything goes wrong. Some of the features and specifications of the DT 150 include :-
- Capacity: 32GB
- Dimensions: 3.06″ x 0.9″ x 0.47″ (77.9mm x 22mm x 12.05mm)
- Operating Temperature: 32 degrees F to 140 degrees F (0 degrees C to 60 degrees C)
- Storage Temperature: -4 degrees F to 185 degrees F (-20 degrees C to 85 degrees C)
- USB plug and play
It will retail for $139, which ain’t too shabby. I wonder whether it supports Vista’s ReadyBoost feature or not – surely you have some bragging rights over your mates if that is the case. What is the largest capacity USB flash drive you have at the moment, and do you see the need for something bigger?
