Kingston has become the first flash drive maker to bring a drive to the U.S. with 256GB capacity.

While Kingston had already previously released a 256GB flash drive (the DataTraveler 300) to the Asia/Pacific, Europe, Middle East and African regions back in July of last year, this drive is an updated model, thus dubbed the DataTraveler 310.

Kingston reports read and write rates of 25MB/sec and 12MB/sec respectively and it is based by a five year warranty. But if its big capacity you want, be prepared for the big price tag as well. Kingston have slapped an MSRP of just over 1100 bucks on it.
