USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drives are Here!

USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drives: Up to 10 Times Faster than USB 2.0!

USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drives are available now and boast up to 10 times the speed of USB 2.0.  They connect through any USB port and are compatible with older USB speeds.  Best of all, they are affordable and in-stock!

Introducing USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drives, the newest USB advancement in years!  This long awaited upgrade is finally on the shelves and offers up an instant boost in transfer rates of up to 5Gb/sec, 10 timest that of USB 2.0. 

USB 3.0 uses the same USB cable as the previous versions (USB 2.0 & 1.1).  All USB 3.0 portable hard drives are compatible with older USB ports, but will operate at the USB port's maximum speed.  If your computer doesn't have USB 3.0 capable ports, you can add them using a USB 3.0 PCI Express Adapter Card for desktops or an ExpressCard/34 Card for laptops. 

Transcend's new StoreJet 25D3 USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive offers 500GB or 640GB of storage in a sleek case.  This new model features a drive suspension system that protects the internal hard drive from accidental drops or impacts.  The LED activity light glows amber for USB 2.0 or blue for USB 3.0 and simply connects to any USB port.  It includes a FREE StoreJet Elite backup & utility software pack with an optional 256-bit AES data encryption setting.
