At CES in Las Vegas, Kingston announced its new DataTraveler Ultimate GT flash drive. With 2TB of storage, it is the world’s largest capacity flash drive. Despite looking a bit bloated, you will now have plenty of storage for all of your kid videos and cat photos.
The drive has a metal alloy case for shock resistance. It sports USB 3.1 through a USB Type-A connector, but sadly lacks USB-C — time to break out the dongle.
Jean Wong, Flash business manager explains, “At Kingston, we push the limits of what’s possible. With the DataTraveler Ultimate GT, we empower users to increase their data storage mobility in a highly manageable form factor. This is a terrific follow-up to our 1TB drive released in 2013 and by doubling the capacity, users can store and carry even larger amounts of data easily”.
