Kingston HyperX Cloud II Red Headset:

With today’s storage world all about online storage and cloud services you wouldn’t think there would be room for a 512 GB flash drive. Well Kingston decided to not only make room but blast their way into it with the Hyper X Predator 512 GB USB 3.0 flash drive.

The Hyper X Predator comes in a nice aluminum case and comes with a USB 3.0 USB cable and an extra large key chain to hold the massively size flash drive. The USB 3.0 cable will come in handy for laptops that are thin and won’t sit evenly with the drive plugged in directly.

For actual storage size your going to get about 465 GB formatted for use. As for speeds you’re going to get what you pay for with average speeds of about 180 MB/s. As you’ll see in our review video we used a 12 GB folder with various video files to test and it took about 1 minute to copy the data to the drive. They copy speeds are just as fast to as we copied back the same data to my computer C: drive (240 GB Kingston Hyper3K SSD) and it blasted out 2.3 GB/S before settling down at the end of around 190 MB/s.

As for price. Well the current MSRP is $1750.oo but…. you can find sales on Amazon that are well below this mark. There are plans for a 1 TB version to come out but not word on release date or pricing on that yet. So yes you will be spending a lot of money for a flash drive but just remember you have 512 GB of storage and USB 3.0 speeds.

If you’re in the need to carry around big storage with fast speeds and don’t want to deal with traditional external hard drives that have moving parts than this is the flash drive for you.

Aco747lyte says:

Already reduced in price @ amazon UK. Its keychain, however, is too risky as it’s inner ball bearing is easy to pop off your keychain if accidentally tugged, so buy a proper strong keychain to attach to it.

reblop says:

1TB on your lil pocket?? AMAZING!!

Death Cold says:

I wonder if SSD looks like this in the future! 🙂


That metal packaging indicated that the company is well over charging for a little piece of an electronic equipment.. It probably cost them 1 dollar to make it… Silly money…

How do you get the Ribbon gui going for Windows Explorer? I’ve never seen that before…that’s awesome!

Mini-anthrax says:

It has more space than my actual computer hardrive. Il so triggered.

darkwoodmovies says:

At this point this is just an external SSD. It’s about the same size as the Samsung T3, and you can’t plug it into any USB port anyway because it’s too bulky, especially for a laptop…

Mr10Residentevilfan says:

My Kingston hyper x gets 16 MB/s but dang this thing is fast. 12 gigs in under a minute. Although one day mine was working really for some reason and it downloaded a 23 gigabyte file in 3 minutes, the fastest speed I ever got.
