Kingston had many great news for technology enthusiasts throughout CES 2016 in Las Vegas. The tech giant, best known for its PC components and drives, introduced many new versions of what might be their best products, the SSD drives. The new KC400 solid state unit from the SSDNow family is meant for entrepreneurship and business, and is up to 15 times faster than a regular hard drive. This drive is special for featuring data protection and SmartECC to avoid data loss (at the users’ hands or a third party) and the smartrefresh protection for all kind of writing errors. The KC400 will come in several sizes, including 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and the glorious 1TB drive, more than anyone could possibly need.
Besides these new gadgets, Kingston also introduced their new USB Data Traveler 2000, which will be available in the first quarter of 2016, with hardware based encryption with NIP (coded) through a physical keypad featured straight on the pendrive itself. The Data Traveler 2000 can do complete AES encryption of data of 256 bits based on the XTS mode on hardware. In order to bring additional security to this device, it’s auto lock function activates as soon as the unit is removed from its host device, while the encryption key and password delete themselves after 10 failed attempts to introduce a proper pass. It comes in three sizes, featuring 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB.
There were also some products for the gamers, with the HyperX line announcing a new entry in the HyperX CloudX series, with a whole revision of the Hyper X Cloud II headphones which were a huge hit among the gaming community. These new headphones are exclusive for the Xbox One gaming console by Microsoft, and they can be connected straight to the 3.5mm jack in every recent Xbox One controller. Historically, the Cloud II has always been about providing the best possible experience to the “PC Gaming Master Race”, but now they are also coming to gaming consoles so everyone can join in the fun and see just how cool these headsets are.
It’s thanks to these new concepts and an exclusivity arrangement with Microsoft and the Xbox Division that the new HyperX CloudX Pro Gaming will be available at the end of the second quarter of 2016 exclusively for Xbox One consoles.
The HyperX CloudX come with 53mm controllers, control for volume, and uses padded “memory foam” for the ears for the perfect fit. It comes with a microphone that the user can mount if they need it, a portable hard case, and many custom details for a better finish and a more professional look.
