LXer: This USB 3.0 Flash Drive Has 2 TB of Storage


Published at LXer:

During Display Taiwan, Transcend and Taiwan's ITRI displayed a finger-long USB stick that reportedly offers 2 TB of storage. That's no typo. It somehow holds up to 2 terabytes worth of information.So far neither company has released anything official in regards to specs or a simple introduction, nor does the high-capacity USB 3.0 stick appear on Display Taiwan's website.

Only one problem of course is that it would take

2TB = 2000000 MB / 400 MB/s (max transfer rate) / 60 sec/min = 83 min to fill it.

This is only in theory, of course, because the transfer rate is never that high.
