Kingston Unveils 256 GB USB Flash Drive

Kingston Technology Company Inc. has launched its 256 GB Kingston DataTraveler 300 USB flash drive in India. The Kingston DataTraveler 300 allows users to carry around a whole digital world, from thousands of image files to a whole database of documents. The company said users will also benefit from quick transfer rates and the option to password protects their data.

The Kingston DataTraveler 300 is ideal for netbook users who want to extend the limited capacity of their machines; it can also be used by business consumers who work with large databases, or even designers who need to transfer large design files from one place to another.

"Having the ability to carry over 51,000 images or a paper tower 1346 meters tall in such a small format, demonstrates how far flash technology has developed," said Nathan Su, Flash Memory Sales Director, APAC Region, Kingston. "Users can also safeguard their data by initializing the Password Traveler software, which will allow business users and consumers to password protect their data in a privacy zone without the need of administrator rights."

The Kingston DataTraveler 300 features a sleek capless design that will protect the USB connector when it is not in use and is enhanced for Windows ReadyBoost on Vista-based systems. The USB drive is available only in 256 GB and is backed by a five-year warranty and free Tech Support. Kingston products are distributed in India by HCL, Tech Pacific India and Transtek Infoways.
