[Hardware.Info]Kingston HyperX Predator 512GB review: biggest USB stick in the world

Recently we published a huge group test of 32 USB 3.0 sticks with capacities of 32 GB and 64 GB. If that doesn't float your boat, you could always get a USB storage device with no less than 512 GB, called the HyperX Predator.

The HyperX Predator 512GB is a beast of a USB stick. It's entirely constructed out of metal and measures 72mm x 27mm x 21mm, and feels sturdier than any other USB stick we've had our hands on. Kingston promises speeds up to 240 MB/s for reading and 160 MB/s for writing.

pricy but do want, if only we can boot windows and various OSes off USB easiliy.

I'd wish its sold in a slim form factor with a retractable USB3 cable and it would make a good tablet companion

I don't have $1100 for half a hard drive with a super slow interface.

Could you imagine transferring that much data through USB interface. Ugh.

that's cool. but impractical! couple of things:

1. usb flash drives use lower tier flash than ssds and are thus more likely to fail early.
2. if any damage occurs to my usb sticks it's usually a bent/loose plug, not damage to the body.
3. it's really expensive for something that's small and easy to lose.

i'd rather pay 6.6% of the price for a fusty old 1tb 2.5" portable drive. or at most 50% of the price for an external ssd. let's face it, if you had that usb stick you'd carry it around in the box. so it's the same in terms of ruggedness and portability as an external ssd, only the ssd is faster, cheaper, and more reliable.

It's not a slow drive though...It's relatively faster than most usb drives out there.

What if you accidentally leave your $1100 drive in a public computer and forget.
Perhaps there should be a GPS tracker located on it.

SSDs can get that expensive but they aren't really mobile. Nothing compared to a USB stick.

Why even use a NVRAM device when a portable HDD offers the same speeds (through USB), without the price hike?

At least comes with a cable so that you can actually plug it in without having to unplug other things next to the port you're using.

which still doesn't mean it's fast. anyway since it's unreliable, it's presumably not going to be used for mission critical data. it must be aimed at very rich people who would keep about 20mb of documents on there, and occasionally take it out of their pockets to brag about how "amazing" technology is and how "incredible" it is that their usb stick holds 10 times more information than the library of alexandria tongue.gif.

At this point I'd rather just pull out my SSD from my computer and bring it with me wherever I go.

Plus I got a bigger stick...but it's not USB.

Ok, it wasn't funny.
