While this DataTraveler HyperX Predator USB 3.0 may startle people all over the world, this makes chain the USB flash disk as an accessory to key ring possible this year. And people can store more files in the USB drive disk and then carry them around freely. Tremendous storage may bring convenience to people who use it and when it allows people to store more and more files in the USB flash drive, it may pose risk to USB protection when placing sensitive files in the disk.
It is reported that, this Kingston not only supports USB 3.0, but also support the newly released SuperSpeed USB 3.0, which has the maximum transmission rate up to 10Gbps. Therefore, you never need to worry about speed of data writing and reading in this USB disk.
