Kingston has set out to prove just how much you'll save with the release of the industry's first 129GB USB key, dubbed the Kingston Data Traveler 200.

USB flash drives are getting so commonplace we might as well start using them as currency. I'm noticing more and more public relations companies handing out USB drives loaded with press releases and relevant product data sheets as opposed to the stack of paper it would've taken to print. I'm also impressed by how much prices for these little guys have come down in the past four years. Case in point: In 2005, the price for this 4GB SanDisk Cruzer Mini was a whopping $380. Meanwhile, Kingston has set out to prove just how much you'll save with the release of the industry's first 129GB USB key, dubbed the Kingston Data Traveler 200.

At just less than 3 inches long and half an inch thick, the tiny Kingston Data Traveler 200 packs a punch. It's available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities for a very affordable $120, $213, and $546, respectively. There are neither special features nor auto-backup software included in the bundle--just a simple drive with a huge capacity, a sliding cap, and password protection for extra security. Strangely enough, Kingston tells us the 128GB version will be made to order only; customers wanting to purchase the drive can place an order through e-tailers or resellers.
