Have to wonder who this appeals to. Amazon.com: Kingston DataTraveler HyperX Predator 1TB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (DTHXP30/1TB) for $870, rated for 240MB/s read and 160MB/s write.
Compare that to the Amazon.com: OCZ Storage Solutions Trion 150 Series 960GB 2.5" 7mm SATA III Internal Solid State Drive TRN150-25SAT3-960G for $199, rated for 550MB/s read and 530MB/s write, and the Amazon.com: StarTech USB 3.0 to SATA Adapter Cable for $11.
A little unwieldy yes, but at less than 25% of the price and well over twice the performance. One of those Concorde moments?
