Kingston DataTraveler 200

Kingston has recently announced their new DataTraveler® 200 USB flash drives and claims to be the world’s first to market the USB flash drive of 128GB capacity. Unfortunately, according to the manufacturer, the 128GB drive is build-to-order only.

Fountain Valley, CA — June 15, 2009 — Kingston has announced the release of the DataTraveler® 200 (DT200), the world’s first 128GB USB Flash drive.

The 128GB drive is build-to-order only. Customers who wish to purchase it can place an order through normal channels (e.g., e-tailers or resellers).

The DT200 is backed by a five-year warranty and 24/7 tech support.
