Deal shaves at least $150 USD off price of expensive thumb drive

Remember that HyperX Predator 1 terabyte thumb drive from Kingston Technology, Inc. which debuted at CES 2013?

Well it's still not exactly "affordable", but with a Lightning Deal from Amazon.com, Inc. (AMZN) you can get it for "only" $899 USD (w/ free shipping).  That's about $150 USD cheaper than the normal price on Amazon or on eBay, Inc. (EBAY) (or various other sites).

Newegg currently sells the drive for $1093.60 USD.  The debut price was $2,310 USD.
 
The drive is pretty darn fast with speeds up up to 240 MB/s read and 160 MB/s right over USB 3.0.  The drive is shock resistant and features a zinc alloy case.  It's a bit bulky for a thumb drive, but at 1 TB of storage, that's somewhat understandable.

The "pedestrian" 512 GB HyperX Predator (which debuted at $1,750 USD last year and retails on Newegg for $854.99 USD) is an even bigger steal during the Lightning Deal, retailing for only $459.99 USD.

He can't explain because he has no idea what he is talking about... at all...
