Storing data is as mundane a task as can be, partially due to the great options we have at our disposal in this day and age unlike ten years ago. No more complications with CDs and DVDs nor awful writing speeds, not to mention the sheer inconvenience of having to carry them around. Today, files are stored ten times more efficiently with USB flash drives: Just a small little piece of plastic sitting in your pocket that can house so much valuable information.
January marks a great day for computer storage. Kingston announced that they will be releasing a new USB drive that’s bound to change the way we look at file sizes and USB drive storage capacities alike. The device in question will be named the Kingston Data Traveler Ultimate GT, and will feature extensive compatibility with both Windows 10 and older OS versions. Additionally, Chrome OS, Mac OS X and Linux will also be compatible.
The kicker here is the storage capacity that comes with the Data Traveler: 2 TB. That is two terabytes of storage space you can use for anything. Back in the day, people were amazed at how DVDs were able to store 4GB of information. The fact that we can now store literally thousands of GB on such a small and portable device is amazing. Let’s take a look at some of the other features that the new Data Traveler Ultimate GT will come with:
- Tech support warranty for five years;
- 72mm x 26.94mm x 21 mm;
- USB 3.1 support;
- Operating temperatures supported between -25 and 60 degrees.
The Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate GT ships in February with a 5-year warranty and will be available in 1TB and 2TB capacities. For the time being, there is no information about the retail price of the drive, but we expect to pay around $700-800 for it.
