2. The USB Flash Drive
The Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 512GB retails online for €698~766. The price is very high but is seems that Kingston has no serious competition in the category, for a premium product aimed at a limited target group.
The drive is backed by a five-year warranty and free technical support by Kingston.
Let's move on with the package. As you see below, the Predator HyperX 512GB USB3.0 does not come in the typical transparent plastic case seen with most USB flash drives. Besides the flash drive itself, this small metallic package includes a get a key ring and a USB3.0 extension cable to allow us to easily plug the flash drive even when the available free space around our system's USB ports is limited.
The USB flash drive is large in size compared to other drives, as it is 72mm x 26.94mm x 21mm without the key ring
. A zinc alloy metal casing contributes to its high-end design and adds a solid look, while it also makes the drive shock-resistant.
Besides a couple of Kingston logos, a blue LED on the side of the drive flashes during write/read operations.
A custom Kingston key ring and a HyperX Valet Keychain are some extras goodies provided by the company:
The left section of the drive slides along the black middle section to reveal a USB 3.0 connector.
Inside the 521GB drive there are a Phison PS2261 controller and Toshiba 19nm NAND Flash.
