The Consumer Electronics Show is upon us this week, which means we can expect plenty of announcements from companies across all areas of tech. Kicking things off for us this year is Kingston, with the announcement of its 2TB DataTraveler Ultimate GT USB 3.1 portable SSD, the highest capacity thumb drive in the world, sporting 2TB of flash storage.
As you can see from the image below, the DataTraveler Ultimate GT is quite hefty for a thumb drive. It is narrower than competing portable SSD solutions, such as Samsung’s T-series drives but it is quite a bit thicker.
The idea here is to offer power users with massive amounts of data storage in a small form factor, with 2TB of space here, you could store up to 70 hours of 4K video for instance. This DataTraveler is built with a zinc-alloy casing, making it sturdy and shock resistant so your data should withstand a couple of drops, the USB 3.1 interface should also ensure good speeds, though exact read and write speeds have not been revealed just yet.
The DataTraveler Ultimate GT will come in two versions, a 2TB and a 1TB, both of which are backed by a five year warranty. Pricing and availability information still needs to be confirmed too but we will update you once it arrives.

KitGuru Says: How much storage do you usually take on the go with you? I have a 128GB flash drive myself but I have never really come close to filling it up.
