No matter how you slice it, having 256GB on your keychain is pretty rad. For those living in various regions of the world not named America, they’ve had access to the DataTraveler 300 for just under a year. Thankfully, the Kingston finally realized that Yanks love capaciousness as well, and the DataTraveler 310 is the solution that very sect has been longing for. Hailed as the first 256GB flash drive to ship in the States, the DT 310 is capable of holding up to 54 DVDs or 1,984 JPEGs of your undercover lover, and it’ll function just fine with Windows, Linux and OS X-based systems. We’re told that it’ll sport data transfer rates of 25MB/sec (read) and 12MB/sec (write), but chances are you’ll never get the opportunity to put those claims to the test. You know, given that astronomical $1,108 MSRP.

Along comes the 256GB thumb drive DataTraveler 300. A little on the bulky side but for that much space I will deal with the large manly bulge in my pocket. Not to mention 20 MB/Sec read rate and 10 MB/Sec write speed. It also support ReadyBoost in Windows Vista and assumedly Windows 7. Only marketed to be available in the UK and Europe but any savvy webhead knows you can get whatever you want if you want to try hard enough, and will pay the nearly $1,000.
Geez! That is about 100x more space than my first computer!
