Transcend Wants to Make a 2TB Flash Drive: Yes Please!

 |  |  |  |  September 3, 2011

Apparently, Transcend is working on a 2 terabyte USB 3.0 flash drive. I think that’s about the best news that I’ve heard recently, because flash drives can never be big enough. The mythical 2TB drive will “be no longer than a human thumb and only a hair thicker than a penny”. Famous last words or will we see these soon?

Needless to say that this USB flash drive would be ridiculously expensive, but odds are after a few months, flash drives in the 500GB to 1.5TB sizes would hit the market costing less. If this happens, it’ll make a lot of sense to ditch USB hard drives for flash drives, unless you need to run a RAID array.

While Transcend thinks it’s possible, it might also take a while, as the biggest USB flash drives currently on the market only hold 256GB.
