Zinc alloy metal casing with HyperX Valet Keychain
Kingston Digital HyperX Predator DataTraveler 512GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive

The Most Powerful HyperX USB Flash Drive Combines Extreme Speed with High Capacity

Kingston’s DataTraveler HyperX Predator USB Flash drive offers the fastest speeds from Kingston and the highest capacities available in the world. Speeds up to 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write* (in USB 3.0) mean users can quickly access, edit and transfer their files and applications directly from the drive with no performance lag. Capacities up to 1TB** allow users to store their entire digital world on the DT HyperX Predator.

High Performance with Backwards Compatibility

This prestigious drive is compliant with next-generation USB 3.0 specifications to take advantage of USB 3.0 ports in newer notebooks and desktops, and it includes a USB 3.0 dongle. It’s also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 systems to maximize current investments.

Zinc Alloy Metal Casing – Resilient Protection for Data

DT HyperX Predator offers superior quality in a high-end design. Its zinc alloy metal casing makes it shock-resistant; all drives must pass extensive durability and shock testing. It also features a custom Kingston key ring and HyperX Valet Keychain for added value.

Will the DataTraveler HyperX Predator Work with Your USB 2. 0 Ports?

It’s backwards compatible with existing USB 2.0 ports, allowing 2.0 users to migrate to 3.0 in the future without replacing their drive.

Kingston Digital HyperX Predator DataTraveler 512GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive
Why Do You Need the Faster Speeds of USB 3.0?
  • USB 3.0 helps you save more time and USB 3.0* drive transfers files faster than USB 2.0 drives.
  • Depending on the type of files you transfer, USB 3.0 can save you a lot of time compared to stndard USB 2.0 drives.

*Speed may vary due to host hardware, software and usage.

**Some of the listed capacity on a Flash storage device is used for formatting and other functions and thus is not available for data storage. As such, the actual available capacity for data storage is less than what is listed on the products. For more information, go to Kingston’s Flash memory Guide at kingston. com/flashguide.

The Predator 512GB USB3 Drive is a unique product right now, being the largest USB stick you can really buy at the moment, but just as importantly, it is very fast as well for a USB drive. It's no SSD, BUT, as removable storage goes, it's very fast, outpacing my external mechanical hard drives and high-end SDXC cards by a fair margin.

And this is what I need it for, LOTS of FAST external storage all in one place.

Crystal DiskMark results, posted below, show this is about twice as fast in large file operations as my SandDisk Extreme SDXC 45 MBps card in my laptops built-in SD card slot, and about 3X as fast as my WD Passport 1TB connected via USB 3. Net, my go to portable storage device at this moment.

+Very fast for removable storage
+Rugged
+Secure and convenient key ring holder with quick release
+Protects the USB connection well via sliding mechanism without using an all to easy to loose cap
+Big-ish for a USB thumb drive, but small for something that holds 512GB!

-Performance drops off for 512mb writes
-No hardware encryption, must rely on a software solution

Highly recommended, but do wish for the hardware encryption option and can't wait for the 1TB version to come out!

As an accountant who does on-site appointments taking my server of data with me is required.

Up to this point I was using a standard size USB 3.0 solid state drive but this was too bulky when taking my Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 10.1" 64GB Win 8 Pro Tablet with Stylus(367927U). Tried using the Seagate Wireless Plus 1 TB Mobile Device Storage with Built-In WI-Fi Streaming (STCK1000100) but had problems with trying to map the drive through wifi as well as internet browsing.

This little unit does everything I need, hands down! When not in use, the USB 3.0 plug is protected and when ready to use, the unit is light enough so when using this with my Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 10.1" 64GB Win 8 Pro Tablet with Stylus(367927U) tablet, plug into USB jack and presto my tablet in now my desktop PC with access to all of my server data.

Yes, this unit is expensive but come on, look at the size dimensions, data transfer speed and construction quality (metal casing) and the purchase price is worth every penny.

I have used this daily for nearly three months. It is quick and reliable using Mac OSX. It is perfect for traveling with large quantities of video. I am likely to buy another couple of them, as well as the 1TB version when its price falls out of the stratosphere.

I bought one Hyper X Predator which was 512GB and still using now as I found Kingson Hyper is most reliable thus I paid more to get 1TB. I really love their products.

Exceptionally fast for both read and write. Perfect for very large files of audio and/or video. Can swallow my entire record and CD collection with room to spare. Great for that USB port in your car audio system for cross country trips. Built like a brick too!

Size Name: 1TB Verified Purchase
This unit plugs into a Macbook Pro and unfortunately is so thick that it extends below the Macbook Pro case, extending even more than the rubber feet on the laptop. It looks like about 3-4mm or so. This is going to cause a problem of wear and stress inside the socket and the drive as the entire weight of the laptop is now going to be supported on one side by this USB device. Otherwise the metal casing is nice, however it's also heavy and kind of detracts from the cool factor of such a small form factor for 1TB of data. But this form factor mismatch is a "I have to return it" situation for me already because I sure do not want to lose 1TB of data because something wore out from pressure inside this unit, and I sure do not want to have to replace parts in my Macbook Pro because something was binding in the socket and wore out one of two USB ports on the device.

Performance: this unit fails to out-perform a LaCie Rugged thunderbolt 1TB HDD... even when the LaCie has an encrypted filesystem, this unit *unencrypted* has only a 20% edge. I bought this unit with the intention of using it for backups while traveling, in order to cut down some carry weight/space. As a result, I don't intend on relying on it unencrypted. The encrypted performance on a Mac is a real disaster.

Some real world testing of copying a 9 gigabyte folder of RAW (CR2) and JPG photos.

====== 51 MB/sec unencrypted (vs. rating of 160MB/sec writing)

Deleting the results, and copying it again resulted in this:

We are here to help troubleshoot and can work with you to either get the drive working properly or replace it under warranty.
