a company representative told us the retail price once the Victorinox SSD launches later this year will likely be in the neighborhood of $3,000
I well pass on getting that one anytime soon.

My Kingston 256 GB was $550. So the price is comparable. Or I could go with 6 of the Kingstons.

No doubt they'd still arrest you if you tried to get on a plane. After the strip-search and 4 hours in a holding cell, all would be fine again. No big deal.

Meanwhile, while 9 inspectors try to decide what to do about the extreme threat that you represent, the real bombers are getting on the plane.

No one has said that flying is "fun" in a long time. The trouble with all this security stuff is that the better you lock out the bad guys, the more you yourself are locked in. Sometimes, I'd rather just live and take my chances.

(PS. Microsoft has a free driver download for formatting the extra large capacity flash and SD cards.)

Plus look how it's made. Is it to heavy to have hanging onto to plug and not fall out or break off. Then again you got the metal around the USB so guess it will be OK.

Just don't open the knife and hook it up and stand around holding a laptop without steel toe shoes.
