Would you buy a 1TeraByte flash drive?

While some of us are still flaunting our 1TeraByte external hard drive, Kingston, the data storage maker has decided to take things to the next level by making 1TB as portable as possible by bringing it to a flash drive size known as the DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0.

That effectively puts paid to the time when all we had on flash drives were a couple of Megabytes which was less than a decade ago when some were still sporting diskettes.

The DataTraveler HyperX Predator 3.0 has read/write speeds of up to 240MB/s and 160MB/s, boasting SuperSpeed USB 3.0 certification.

The drive is available in 512GB capacity right now, while the 1TB version is expected to hit the market later this quarter. The price for the 512GB is a whopping $1,750 (approximately N 280, 000), meaning the 1TB variant will likely be too expensive for the average customer.

However, for users who do not require as much space, Kingston has also launched slower and smaller USB drives, with capacities of 32GB and 64GB and read/write speeds of 150MB/s and 70MB/s.

If you had the resources to purchase the 1TB flash drive, would you?
