That’s emphasized by the fact that the formatting on its own makes very little sense – FAT32 but 32KB clusters? You’re anticipating large file sizes with a file system that doesn’t allow large file sizes. That’s like building a garage sized for a semi but a door sized for a Porsche. I know it’s been “standard” for years to format USB sticks to Fat32 for interoperability but I think we’re pretty well past that need now. Even Linux has NTFS support built right into modern kernels.

I’m not sure where someone would “need” this form factor at present for massive data storage, but I feel like Kingston’s goal here is to get it out there so people can start FINDING uses for it. In that, I’ll give them a lot of credit – it’s reasonably priced for what it is, and though I doubt that it will make a huge amount of sales, it’s at least starting people thinking about truly bigger data being “on the go.” The fact that this has hit production will likely mean the next revision will be cheaper by the GB and that’s awesome. Give it another year or two and this will be feasible to those of us who right now have to look at the mechanical drive options.
