Over the last few years USB Flash drives have increased considerably in capacity and come down in price. Keeping the trend going is Edge Tech Corp with two new additions to its stable - the 128GB DiskGO and the tiny DiskGO Backup USB Flash drive.
While not the first on the market to offer a 128GB flash drive (Kingston Technology got there first with the DataTraveler 200) it does offer a point of difference – it's around $150 cheaper than the Kingston offering.
