CES 2008: Kingston Showcases Four New Flash DrivesMon, Jan 07, 2008 - 1:30 AM
DataTraveler Style & HyperX
Kinston’s DataTraveler Style features a customizable skin. Consumers will be able to use a website developed by Kingston that will aid users in printing their name or whatever they would like on their Style’s skin. The DataTraveler Style will be available in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB & 8GB capacities.
The Style will ship with 6 different skins to attach to the flash drive. Kingston’s DataTraveler Style will be available exclusively on Amazon.com in the near future.
Lastly, but certainly not least, the DataTraveler HyperX is Kingston’s new performance king of the DataTraveler product line by featuring 30 MB/sec read speeds and 20 MB/sec write speeds according to Kingston. The Kingston HyperX series has long been reserved as enthusiast grade DRAM, but Kingston has made the move to bring the HyperX name to Flash memory. Kingston will keep the HyperX tradition alive and offer the fastest read and write speeds on the DataTraveler HyperX series.
The DataTraveler HyperX will be offered in 2GB, 4GB & 8GB capacities and should be available exclusively on Amazon.com starting in about a week. The DataTraveler HyperX as well as all of the other USB Flash drives shown here today come with a five year warranty.
