A lot of pleasant surprises are in store at CES 2017, and among the several products that caught people?s attention is Kingston?s 2 TB USB. Once again, the company has upped its game, three years after unveiling its innovative 1TB USB flash drive.

Another Record-Breaking Device

Ahead of CES 2017, Kingston unveiled yet another record-breaking device. According to the company, the USB flash drive is dubbed the ?Data Traveler Ultimate Generation Terabyte,? and its huge capacity allows it to store 70 hours of 4K video.

BGR states that there are two new flash drives, both of which boast USB 3.1 Gen 1 performance. This means they are capable of transfer speeds of up to 5Gbps. The 2 TB USB flash drive sports a zinc alloy metal design which is shock-resistant. It?s very similar to the 1TB flash drive the company introduced back in 2013 albeit sleeker.

The huge storage capacity of the flash drive along with its compact size make it an ideal device for anyone on the go. With the massive space of TB, you can save a total of ?96 average-sized PC games, 500,000 mp3 files and 256,000 24-megapixel photos.?

In its press release, Kingston branded its new product as the ?new ultimate in flash drive storage.? Besides its huge storage capacity, consumers will love the 2 TB flash drive for its superior quality in a high-end design. The flash drive is compatible with Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows 7 (SP1), Mac OS v.10.9.x+, Linux v.2.6.x+, and Chrome OS.

Jean Wong, Flash business manager, had this to say about their newest product: ?At Kingston, we push the limits of what?s possible. With the DataTraveler Ultimate GT, we empower users to increase their data storage mobility in a highly manageable form factor. This is a terrific follow up to our 1TB drive released in 2013 and by doubling the capacity, users can store and carry even larger amounts of data easily.?
