Kingston unveils world's first 2 TB flash drive

Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate GT world's largest flash drive with 2 TB capacity

Dubbed Kingston DataTraveler Ultimate GT, this impressive flash drive has a shock-resistant zinc-alloy case, offers USB 3.1 speeds, and will hit the market next month in 1 TB and 2 TB variants.

As flash memory prices go down, the size of the USB drives available starts to reach ridiculous figures for the average user. The latest flash drive announced by Kingston beats all records and becomes the largest flash drive for the consumer market, reaching an impressive 2 TB. 

Dubbed DataTraveler Ultimate GT, this USB 3.1 Gen.1 drive comes in 1 TB and 2 TB versions. Backed by a five-year warranty with free technical support, it has a shock-resistant zinc-alloy metal casing, but its dimensions remain compact. This flash drive is compatible with all major operating systems, including Chrome OS, Linux, Mac OS, and Windows (starting with 7 SP1).

Kinston released its first 1 TB flash drive back in 2013, so the new DataTraveler Ultimate GT comes just in time to double that size. The new record-breaking flash drive is expected to hit the market in February, but we have no information about its pricing and launch market. Those interested in it should better start saving already because we cannot expect such a huge amount of flash storage space to come cheap.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
