Can't wait till prices drop on these. I'd love to get my hands on one of these.
I have like 10-15 GB worth of music (which is still growing exponentially).
Top Gear takes up about 30-40 GB of space ( I have all the epis from season 4-now ).
I have quite a few game ISO's which probably take up the majority of the space.
A few movies I'm estimating would add up to 50/60 GB, or more.
Photoshop documents and illustrator documents quickly add up to at least 20 gigs or more.
Total is probably around 300-500 gigs.
I have 26GB of stuff on my computer (out of possible 33GB), 2.4GB of which is my modest music folder. Top Gear is burned on DVDs, so that's aside. I don't play games because my 4 years old 1.7GHz Pentium Mobile IBM laptop won't run any. I also don't watch movies on my computer, and don't use Photoshop much. On the external HD I have 88GB of stuff, 81GB of which is pure anime.
So that'd be 114 GB.
Best of all, you'd spend about 100 minutes copying all of that on the 256gb Kingston. At 20mb/s they are too slow.
Who cares?! It's still 256 fricken' gigs in your pocket!While that is a neat thing, it's quite huge. Scale this 16GB drive up instead
... I?ve had to stock up on storage this year because I didn?t have enough space anymore ... so now I?ve got about 1.2TB in internal and external drives ... and they are starting to fill again ... give me another year and I will be close to having filled my 1.2TB ... and will upgrade to 2 or 3 TB ...[...]For me, that's backup of all my work data, photos and system images. To be able to take that around on a keychain would be fantastic for backup replication.
This one is Kat proof. You can drop it on the floor when on and you can still recover 99% of your data.
Theoretical limits are always nice.
Practical application is another story.
My flash drive does >200Mbyte/s, if it had a USB3 plug it'd probably do similar speeds externally. If they're crying about 20Mbyte/s then there's your practical application :lol: no need for the theoretical top
gearspeed, half that is fine by me.
