Kingston brought the first ever 2TB flash drive into the world. This new age flash drive might sound too expensive for the users, but experts believe consumers should definitely get worth for their money because of the numerous features offered by this flash drive.

Over the years, no one has ever attempted to match Kingston on its 1TB flash drive. The company has now decided to surpass their own standards by introducing the first of its kind, 2TB Data Traveler Ultimate GT flash drive. This 2TB flash drive comes with a USB 3.1 Generation 1 technology, that offers data transfer speed of up to 5Gbps.The Ultimate GT drives are built with a zinc-alloy metal casing for shock resistance and feature a similar design to the DataTravelerHyperX Predator 512GB and 1TB flash drives.

Features And Specifications Of Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate GT

The Kingston Data Traveler Ultimate GT is available in 1TB and 2TB storage and has a dimension of 72mm x 26.94mm x 21mm. It has an operating temperature of -25°C to 60°C and a storage temperature of -40°C to 85°C. It comes with five-year warranty and compatible with Windows 10, 8.1, 8 and 7 OS along with MAC OS x 10.9.1. It uses a USB 3.1 adapter and comes in all zinc-alloy metal casing for shock protection. With the mammoth size of data, storing the drive in a tough shell sounds like a thoughtful move from the company

Are They Really Worth it?

But why in this day and age would anyone need something like this and spend that kind of money? The rapid growth of technology, especially in data usage, brings forth certain requirements that these new flash drives promise to provide. Users can encrypt flash drives for security, allow external devices on their own computers and avoid the relatively low data caps, subscription costs and slow transfer speeds of cloud storage. With 4K video around the corner, experts are guessing a niche market will find these devices immensely useful for video transfers.

With this mammoth storage space, users can store up to 80 hours of 4K video, 500,000 MP3 files, 100+ PC games and around 300,000 high definition images. The company issued a press release comparing on what and how much a user can store on this new 2TB drive.
