    Kingston introduces government-certified DT BlackBox USB Drive


    Kingston Technology has announced the most secure USB drive ever. So secure that it is the first USB drive to have been FIPS-certified by the U.S. Government. The Kingston DataTraveler BlackBox has 256-bit hardware-based AES encryption, as well as a system to lock the drive after 10 unsuccessful password attempts.

  • Review: Kingston DataTraveler HyperX USB flash drive

    Review: Kingston DataTraveler HyperX USB flash drive


    Flash drives have become so ubiquitous that people don’t really question them any more. I know I didn’t until I got this Kingston DT. I have a handful of thumbdrives of various sizes and qualities, and I just sort of accepted that there wasn’t much variation between them aside from build quality and capacity. I never asked myself what would happen if you put high-end… Read More

  • Do you really need a 16GB SDHC? Kingston thinks so.

    Do you really need a 16GB SDHC? Kingston thinks so.

    Don’t get me wrong here. Having more capacity is always a plus, but 16GB of space?! I can barely fill up my 8GB SDHC and Kingston comes out with a 16GB Class 4 SDHC memory card. What does Class 4 mean? Well, the minimum data transfer rate on this is 4MB/s. Not too shabby. That’s about all you really need to know, too. It retails for $231. Read More

  • Hands on with the Kingston Media Reader

    Hands on with the Kingston Media Reader

    I hate being woken up by the UPS/DHL/FedEx delivery guy. I’m not much of a morning person and I hate giving people stank attitude on top of stank morning breath. It’s in their best interest to deliver later in the day or to the office. Makes no difference to me, but let me sleep. That’s what I went through yesterday morning. Read More

  • CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Kingston SDHC for the photogs on your list

    CG Holiday 2007 Recommendation: Kingston SDHC for the photogs on your list

    I didn’t fully understand the strain that’s put on SD cards when they’re being used in a digital camera. I purchased a 2GB SD months ago and I was happy with it and still am, but I can never use it again in my DLSR. It simply cannot process the data fast enough and regurgitate it when I need it. I’m an impatient person and I like things to be done FAST. Of course… Read More

  • Kingston Named Official CompactFlash for Miss America

    We don’t watch the Miss America pageant. We think it’s ultimately demeaning to women and sets an impossibly absurd ideal of what a woman should look and act like, fixing hopeless standards of beauty for young women the nation over. Also, the swimsuit competition just isn’t as hot as it used to be. But that doesn’t mean we can’t find some way to geek out about… Read More
