Kingston Introduces 1TB Flash Drive 170

Deathspawner writes "If there's one thing that each CES can bring, it's a handful or products that manage to drop jaws everywhere. Kingston's latest flash drive series, DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0, manages to be one of those. It's aimed at folks who actually need mass storage on the go at speeds that mechanical hard drives cannot offer. Available soon will be a 512GB model, followed by the 1TB later this quarter. The drive features read speeds of 240MB/s and write speeds of 160MB/s — not quite desktop SSD speeds, but much faster than a mechanical hard drive, and with vastly reduced latencies due to it being flash storage. Not surprisingly, pricing has not yet been discussed."

    Aren't they just encouraging piracy?
    What are you going to fill it with? Maybe not those 1TB monsters, but 100GB or even 50GB, what are you going to use them for?

    Don't get me wrong, the way I see it, the hardware market exploded in the past 15 years, BECAUSE of piracy; I don't want/expect to see it end anytime soon, but still, how do you justify buying something like that?

    I've never seen a good movie adaptation of a book. LotR was pretty good, but so much went missing or was different than what we imagined...

    The worst I've ever seen was The Postman. It's one of the best sci-fi books I've ever read. I re-read it last month, and there were parts that brought a tear to my eye.

    We should clone a mammoth just because we can. I mean, holy shit, a mammoth. We could do it too.
