Dubai, July 20, 2009
Kingston Technology Europe, a subsidiary of Kingston Technology Company, the leader in memory products, has launched the world’s first 256GB USB flash drive, the Kingston Technology DataTraveler 300.
It is the highest capacity available for a USB in the market, a statement said.
The Kingston DataTraveler 300 will enable users to carry around a whole digital world, ranging from an outstanding 51,000 images or 54 DVDs, or 365 CDs, or a whole database of documents equal to a one kilometre paper tower.
The Kingston DataTraveler 300 is perfect for netbook and notebook users who want to extend the limited capacity of their machines, said a statement.
With a host of benefits such as fast transfer speed and password protect software, it is the ideal devise for business consumers who work with large databases, or even designers who need to transfer large graphic files from one place to another.
“Business and individual users are increasingly demanding storage devices capable of managing huge amounts of data, used for work or entertainment,” said Antoine Harb, business development manager for Kingston Technology in the Middle East.
“Carrying an external hard drive can sometimes be an obstacle. With size, security and convenience of accessibility, the DataTraveler 300 enables users to carry huge volumes of data with them everywhere they go – up to 365 CDs for example, for video, music and gaming enthusiasts, that’s one album or game for every day of the year. This demonstrates how far flash technology has developed,” he added.
“Business users and consumers can also safeguard their data by initializing the Password Traveler software which will allow them to password protect their data in a privacy zone without the need of administrator rights.
The Kingston DataTraveler 300 features a sleek cap-less design that will protect the USB connector when it is not in use and is enhanced for Windows Readyboost. The Kingston DataTraveler 300 is available only in 256GB and is backed by a five-year warranty and 24/7 Tech Support.
The Kingston DataTraveler is built to order only; customers who wish to purchase the drive can place an order with many reseller and e-tailers. – TradeArabia News Service
