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. (

The "pedestrian" 512 GB HyperX Predator (which debuted at $1,750 USD last year and retails on Newegg for

Really, the HyperX Predator is monstrously large:
