kind of big isn't it. just waiting on the day when i can get one of these for $30
January 8, 2013 2:05:15 PM

$1,750 for the 512GB version...can we assume the 1TB won't be anything less than $3,000?

Yes, big and expensive. Wait few years it'll be smaller and cheaper.

Her face and body are mighty fine too, but you just moved house into Creepyville with that one

mmm...1Tb USB Stick. I can remember when an 8 Gb flash stick was several hundred dollars. Someday they'll be almost giving these things away. Technology is awesome.

No wonder why it's nicknamed "brick". It surely looks like its own weight is enough to bend the USB plug when you leave it on your computer

unless she has tiny hands that thing looks huge.

Predator in the name? Is it just me or this is business/luxury product, not a teen dream. Think naming is a bit off here. Other than that interesting idea stuffed with flash.

Actually I think you just moved into creepyville.... Regardless we all like Jane :) 

Is that 8.5x11" paper its sitting on? If so then this thing is like 1.5x2x4" That's not a "USB stick" its more of a "USB Tree"

Why is this titled "Hands-on with Kingston's 1TB USB Stick", when they didn't even bring the real thing at CES?
AFAIK, a "hands-on" article is posted during/after said device has been...handled. Also includes a writer's (mini)-review of said device, even if it's a brief handling of it.
This is like posting a hands-on article about a display-only mock-up phone unit in a carrier's store.

cool idea... design is terrible.

it won't be usable on my desktop due to the ultra wide design... nor on my laptops.
now if a short 2 inch cable is included we're in business

Besides being a proof of concept, I don't see any reason why a company would waste their time making a product like this. Has there ever been a consumer targetted peripheral that sold for $1750 that has seen any sort of commercial success? I doubt it, but I am positive that a USB stick, which has none of the attributes that make USB sticks popular (low cost, portability, usability) won't be one. And that's the 512GB version. The 1TB model? That's like adding 10 more patties to a $50 10 patty hamburger.

wouldn't it be cheaper, more convenient, and probably smaller and lighter on your pocket just to stick a 1TB SSD in an external USB case and be done with it? That thing is huge

stuart72 - Did you mean HD instead of SSD? I don't think a 1TB SSD (such as the OCZ Octane), would necessarily be cheaper than this drive.

A 512GB SSD goes for about $450 (and is much faster), 512GB of this flash drive goes for $1750! That is about 4 times more expensive.

No that is not 8.5x11" paper. Try to judge the size of the drive by the size of the USB plug.
It is about the same length of an average performance flash drive, about 20% wider and about 2.5 times thicker. So it's mostly just chunky, but not much bigger in other ways.
