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.

I have an old OCZ 64GB SSD which I use like an external thumb drive. I don't even have it in a case, and it's connected to an external USB-to-SATA adapter (which came free with my Samsung 830 SSD). The speed is way faster than any USB stick I've ever used. The new 1TB SSDs are even smaller and lighter, probably not much bigger than this thing. It's cool that they were able to get 1 TB on a USB stick, but not worth the price unless you absolutely need the form factor.
