It’s actually quite remarkable what has happened to the price of flash memory in recent years. It wasn’t that long ago that a rather large USB drive with about a gig of memory would prove to be a rather pricey purchase. Such is no longer the case.
Kingston is continuing the trend of super small and super cheap USB flash drives with the unveiling of the Kingston DataTraveler Mini Slim USB flash drives. These wafer-thin drives only measure about a quarter of an inch thick, making them among the skinniest drives on the market. Kingston isn’t the first to do this, but it’s good to have options.
Better still, the super skinny drives from Kingston are dirt cheap too. The 2GB and 4GB versions retail for $11 and $19.
