CES 2014 Kingston line up

DT Micro Duo 2

Kingston always has some very innovated new toys for us each year at CES. Last year we reviewed the Kingston Hyper X Memory and SSD, and it made a huge impact in our gaming and this year was no different. The first thing we looked at was the DT (stands for Data Traveler) Micro Duo. This small device, which could get lost in the palm of your hand, sports both a USB and MicroUSB on opposite ends. It will be available in 8, 16, 32, and 64GB capacities. Some of us tend to carry our media on the go. The DT Micro Duo can connect to your Android device via the MicroUSB, and now you can play back your HD videos with zero lag, or move your pictures and movies off your device as well. The DT Micro Duo should be out some time in the first or second quarter.


One completely new device from Kingston is the gaming headset. The HyperX Cloud wants to replace every gaming headset you own, sporting 53mm drivers for amazing sound quality, memory foam ear cushions that go over your ear, giving you excellent sound quality and isolation. And when you’re done gaming you can remove the mic and just lounge around the house listening to your music. The HyperX Cloud will be available toward the end of Q1 but you can go online to NewEgg and pre-order them now!

DataTraveler Locker+ G3

Another new toy from Kigston is the DataTraveler Locker+ G3. This third generation of the device is hardware encrypted and password protected (all built in, so no software is needed) to keep all your important personal files safe and secure. The best part of all is if you lose the device and someone tries to crack your password, after ten attempts the device self wipes all the data. This next generation sports USB 3.0 connectivity for read speeds up to 135MB/s and write speeds up to 40MB/s, all wrapped in a nice and durable metal casting that looks very durable. The capacities will range from 8-64GB and will be compatible with Windows XP, Windows 8, and Mac OS X. The DataTraveler Locker+ G3 is available online now.

Not shown is the SDXC UHS-I U3, aimed at your 4K2K cameras. It is capable of 80-90MB/s read and write speeds, surpassing the UHS (ultra high speed) minimum requirement of 30MB/s. This card will be out late January, early February in 8-64GB capacities.
