London, UK, June 2009 (Catalysis): Kingston Technology Europe Ltd, a subsidiary of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., the independent world leader in memory products, announced the release of the Kingston DataTraveler 200, the world’s first 128GB USB Flash drive, recently. The Kingston DataTraveler 200 provides users with the option to password protect their data, as well as giving consumers and business users the flexibility to carry vast amounts of data with them at all times.

“The DataTraveler 200’s immense 128GB storage capability lets users store as much data as 182 music CDs or up to 27 DVD movies. Business users benefit as they can carry around large databases or files whilst they are out of the office,” said Jim Selby, European Product Marketing Manager, Kingston Technology. “The password protection facility helps safeguard data and requires no admin rights, making the DataTraveler 200 a terrific solution for the home or office.”

The Kingston Technology DataTraveler 200 features a capless design that protects the USB connector when not in use and is enhanced for Windows ReadyBoost. The drive is also available in 32GB and 64GB capacities.

The values given as to amount of storage are all based on for documents on the calculation of 10 page Word file with various formatting, for CDs on standard 12cm compact disc with maximum of 703MB capacity, and for DVD movies on single-sided single-layer DVD with ~ 4.7GB capacity. As they say, it all depends. So don't expect to be able to store the 27 DVD movies if you have all of them on multi-layer discs or such. Same for documents if you store entire books of 100s of pages.

The DataTraveler 200 is backed by a five-year warranty and 24/7 tech support. For more information, visit
