not to be sold to government organisation.

that is far too much data for one muppet to lose!.

HOLY FOOKEN HELL..... 250 gig USB Pen.. a new this day would come, but no that quick lol

Massssive :-0

Too rich for my pocket tho :-(

Hmm, it's still cheaper than the first 1GB drive I bought

Looks good, BUT can't afford £599.99 :roll:

Why the cold votes ?

Is this available any cheaper?

Dont forget quidco :P

bloody hell! I paid £100 for an 8Meg pen drive about 10 years ago so 32,000 times the storage capacity for 6 times the price, not bad! Give it a year and it'll be £59.99.
Have some heat!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i will wait until it is around £9.99... ;-)

Just imagine losing this! Would make your wallet hurt...

pmsl.
Love the comments, guys. And thanks for the rep.


In seriousness, it's a promising sign for the future, though. Can't wait 'til we start seeing massive flash drives.
Not sure I'd fancy sticking one in the divx/dvd player and scrolling down to Zardoz, mind... ;-)

LOL!

USB drives up to 32GB are hovering at just over £1 per GB, so this is a *tad* expensive if you look at it in those terms.

Also, how long would it take to transfer 256GB of data to it at USB2.0 speeds anyway? A bloomin' looooong time!
