So how much portable storage is enough? 8GB? 16GB? 32GB? How about a whopping 128GB? Kingston claims it’s the first to reach that huge amount of space in portable storage. But really, who care about first right? What matters is that 128GB number.
Now enough geekism. The DT200 (short for DataTraveler 200) also offers password protection to help secure important files.
If that 128GB is simply too much storage for you, the DT200 is also available in 32GB and 64GB capacities. They are built-to-order only, so no, you can’t buy this via CD-R King.
