Deal shaves at least $150 USD off price of expensive thumb drive
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. (
) 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. (
) (or various other sites).
Newegg currently sells the drive for
. 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
) is an even bigger steal during the Lightning Deal, retailing for only

RE: Not worth it at all.

I bought a 512 MB CF card 10 years ago for the low, low price of $115. I needed it for my DSLR, and it was a better (albeit more expensive) alternative to a 340 MB microdrive.
Today, a 512 MB SD card (if they still made them) would be about $0.25. So yeah, this stuff is definitely not worth it not just for 90% of people, but for 99% of people. Unless you
it today, save your money and just wait a few years.
I don't use the 512 MB card anymore, but I keep it around in my photo bag. I figure in 2-3 decades I can show it to my grandkids and amaze them that something which holds a millionth the capacity of what we'll probably have by then cost so much. (I also have a 5 MB PCMCIA flash drive which cost me $100 in 1997.)
