Worlds Largest Capacity USB Flash Drives 1TB, 2TB

Commercially available from Kingston are the DataTraveler Ultimate GT USB 3.1 Flash Memory Sticks in 1TB and 2TB capacity. These are the highest capacity memory in production. But to get this big storage, you’ll pay a big price. You could buy one of the top rated 4K UltraHD Display laptops (and a bunch of accessories) for what these will cost. For comparison, a high quality 128GB Flash Drive is around $30 – here is a review of the top 4.

What would you use these for? You can store your entire audio library on a single drive. Or if you are in photography, video or film to back up large production files; This makes it convenient when shooting 4K or 8K RAW video footage or storing large file libraries of movies, high-res images, etc. For example, the 2TB model can store up to 70 hours of 4K footage.

We checked on Amazon for the spot-pricing, and to make sure they are actually in stock. Yes, there were at least 6 of each 1TB and 2TB that you could buy today and have it delivered tomorrow.

Here are the links:

Kingston Digital 2TB DataTraveler Ultimate GT Flash Drive (DTUGT/2TB) – around $1,200 to $1,600

Kingston Digital 1TB DataTraveler Ultimate GT Flash Drive (DTUGT/1TB) – about $600

In addition to the massive storage capacity, you get extremely fast data transfers thanks to the USB 3.1 Gen 1 interface. If your system can support it, the Flash Drives have rated speeds of 300MB/s (Read) and 200MB/s (Write). This is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, so will work on just about any machine (but you won’t get the USB 3.1 data rates).

Here are the specs from Kingston:

  • Capacities: 1TB, 2TB
  • Speed: USB 3.1 Gen. 1
  • Metal Casing: Durable zinc alloy die-cast metal casing is shock-resistant
  • Dimensions: 72mm x 26.94mm x 21mm

One bonus so you don’t loose this expensive, but small device is the “Hyper Valet Keychain”, an exclusive accessory for a stylish twist to portable storage.
