    Kingston 256GB Thumb Drive
    By John Herrman, 9:00 AM on Mon Jul 20 2009

    " Here's your cold, bitter, daily dose of hardware obsolescence: Just a month after passing the already-ridiculous 128GB barrier, Kingston has released the 256GB DataTraveler 300. It isn't available in the US, but if/when it is, it'll run around $900. "

    I wouldn't trust that thing. 256gb on a stick can't be reliable.

    Bad experience with big storage devices in an 'early stage' I guess.

    Can't wait for the price of these to come waaaaay down. I'm more comfortable when I get a thumb drive free with purchase from Newegg. Yeah, I know I am a cheeeeeeap bastard.

    From what I understand, memory like this fails after data has been saved and deleted hundreds (or thousands) of times. Seems that a large capacity would last longer, because data could be stored on the drive instead of needing to be deleted and re-written due to lack of capacity.

    hopefully drives this big will come down in price in a reasonable time frame considering the way hard drive capacity has been expanding...but then again dvd-9's are still too expensive
