Kingston Traveller Mini Fun


OK, so this may only be for those of you in the Mid-Atlantic region(PA,NJ,DE,MD,VA), but I thought it was a good deal to pass along. 

While browsing the FiveBelow store (Similar to the Dollar Store concept – only $5 max) on my lunch break, I came across Kingston brand 256MB USB thumb drives for $5.

They also had Kingston 256MB SD cards for $5 as well.  I picked up a couple and found that aside from the odd design on the thumb drive and the need to delete the two crappy demo games that came on them, they work well.  In the age of 2GB drives, these aren’t the greatest. But, at $5 each, it’s a cheap and easy way to keep some extra storage in your bag.  Rich is going to get an early Christmas present this year.

I already have two other drives for my PortableApps and a Linux DSL VM, but as more portable apps become available I’ll have some drives to load them on.  I’d also like to create a TrueCrypt traveller disk ( so I don’t have to pull out my USB hard drive to store sensitive info.

Happy shopping. 

NOTE: You can use the store locator on the company website ( to find out if there is one near you.  Oh, and they are a good place for iPod accessories (skins, car/home chargers, travel speakers, etc.) all $5 or less.

    I got the thumb drive. It is really compact and from a name like Kingston it should be good memory.
