Big gig flash drives

I love my LaCie rugged portable drives but I think the new,  large flash drives from Kingston could give them a run for their money. The problem with carrying duplicate drives everywhere is…..you have to carry duplicate drives everywhere. Substituting two small flash drives would cut the poundage from the laptop bag considerably.  Also, the idea of running a pair of Kingston’s 128 GB flash dives in my USB ports is exciting.

Imported images with a Firewire 800 card reader could go through the MacBook Pro and simultaneously out to the two flash drives. The MBP has three USB ports and I think by using the two outside ports there would be enough room for the flash drives. It could block the Firewire port, though. More study is needed.

In the meantime, I’ll be watching the price of the Kingstons (currently approximately $400).
