In keeping with the premium price-tag the DR HyperX comes in a tin case that is a vast improvement upon the normal blister packs that require scissors, napalm and a trip to the local hospital to open.

You can always get a hint at the quality of a product from the packaging, and the DT HyperX is kept in extremely high-density foam with all the cut-outs as precise as you could hope to find them. We have the drive itself, a key-ring that perfectly matches the case of the DT HyperX, and an extension cable in the Kingston HyperX blue, should the drive prove a little larger than the tight USB sockets on your system.

Considering that this is a 512MB stick, it's only twice as thick, and approximately the same dimensions, as any other USB drive. The drive slides open and closes with a very satisfying clunk. There isn't any scrimping upon the calibre of the metal casing at all. It's extremely high quality.

I want one just so that when people ask if you have a USB stick they can borrow, you can respond with 'sure, be careful though, it cost £640'. At which point I wouldn't actually give them it.Quote

That price is absurd, you can get 2 512GB Crucial M4s with SATA to USB3 adapters for that money with a £50+ to spare. Yes, it's smaller, but it's also easier to break/lose and also slowerQuote

I would say that is in a class of if you need this tool you can get it now. Yes it is way too expensive for anything I would use it for. I would go with something like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9SIA1DS0CZ4958 with an SSD in it if I need a fast, portable, and rugged drive.Quote
