We are used to seeing flash drives as small devices with limited data space. Who hasn’t said “I wish I had more space on my flash drive”? If you, like us, have said that then I’m sure you’ll be interested in Kingston’s proposition – a 512GB USB 3.0 Predator series flash drive, which is the largest capacity series available these days, and also one of the fastest.
Who hasn’t heard of Kingston? There can’t be that many people who haven’t. It would be surprise for me as Kingston is the largest third-party memory manufacturer in the world.
Kingston was founded on October 17, 1987 and is celebrating its 25th anniversary. There is also a HyperX high performance memory 10th anniversary that is also worth mentioning, as it’s a really popular enthusiast and gamer series.
Now maybe some more about our review sample. Here is some info from the premiere in the beginning of the 2013:
“2013 International CES Las Vegas – January 7, 2013– Kingston Digital Europe Ltd, an affiliate of Kingston Technology Company Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, today announced the DataTraveler® HyperX® Predator 3.0 USB Flash drive. DataTraveler HyperX
Predator 3.0 is the world’s largest-capacity USB 3.0 Flash drive as it will be available in a 1TB capacity later in Q1. It is shipping now in 512GB capacity. DT HyperX Predator 3.0 is the fastest USB 3.0 Flash drive in the Kingston® family, with speeds of up to 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write. It has also achieved SuperSpeed USB 3.0 certification.”
Also some words from Kingston representative:
|“Our new DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 allows users to store their entire digital world on a portable USB 3.0 Flash drive,” said Ann Keefe, Regional Director UK and Ireland, Kingston. “The large capacity and fast USB 3.0 transfer speeds allow users to save time as they can access, edit and transfer applications or files such as HD movies directly from the drive without any performance lag.”|
So far, so good. It’s time to move to the next page and see what Predator flash drive looks like.
