datatraveler 200Not happy with the measly 4GB solid state disk that came with your Eee PC 701 or other first generation netbook? Sure, you could upgrade to a newer model with a roomy 160GB hard drive. But then you’d lose the advantages of solid state disks like durability and low energy usage. Another option is to plug in a high capacity SD card or USB flash drive. And they don’t come any higher capacity than Kingston’s new 128GB DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive.

Unfortunately they also don’t come much more expensive. Kingston is charging about $546 for the 128GB drive. Fortunately it also comes in 32GB and 64GB flavors, for about $120and $213 respectively.Yeah, maybe you should just upgrade to a newer model. On the other hand, how long do you figure it’ll take before hackers start disassembling these drives and cramming them inside netbooks to supply permanent additional storage capacity?

The drives come with five year warranties and support for Windows Vista ReadyBoost technology.

Update: It looks like EDGE is also offering a 128GB USB flash drive, for the moderately more affordable price of $389.95.

  1. I bought the 16GB DataTraveller on Boxing Day for CAD22 down from, at the time, $90… hopefully such similar deals will be had for these. Even the model I bought has gone down to $55 now.

  2. Hey Brad, can we have a new giveaway with this as the prize? 😉
