These days it is all about mobility. The average user looks at portability as a necessity along with speed being an equal component. For years manufacturers have been trying to squeeze the most out of their designs by using multiple flash chip designs in a dual and quad channel configuration. However, they were still limited by the interface technology. USB 2.0 has been the dominator for some time with the popular interface, but the limit of 480MB/s is just too slow for the massive amounts of data that we as end users are transferring in this fast growing time. End users want to have higher storage capacities without taking a long time to transfer the data. USB 3.0 came on the scene a short time ago and has drastically changed the way we look at portable storage. With the new USB 3.0 specifications you can now transfer larger amounts of data quicker and more efficiently. With USB 3.0 you can transfer data up to 5Gbps speeds which allows transferring a gigabyte file as quickly now as it was to transfer a megabyte file when USB 2.0 was introduced. Since the inception of USB 3.0 we have seen more and more devices being built with this faster interface including thumb drives.
When it comes to USB drives, heed this warning: They are very easy to lose. But the $210 Patriot Memory Supersonic's USB 3.0 performance is so shockingly fast that you'll likely end up treating this small 64GB device like a precious jewel.The hard aluminum casing of the Patriot Memory Supersonic feels solid, but it's not as durable as the Imation Defender F200. Still, Patriot says it can survive shocks up to 15Gs. The 0.56-ounce drive is not designed to catch your eye but to serve a purpose: to make every backup and file transfer run much faster. Measuring 2.8 inches long, the Supersonic is noticeable when plugged into a laptop USB port, but it's not as obtrusive as the F200. The drive comes in two versions--the 64GB model we tested, and a 32GB version. We just wish that the design had a slide-out USB plug; you'll definitely want to make sure you don't lose the cap.Using a USB 3.0 port on a Samsung RF510, we copied a 5GB folder of media files and docs to the drive in just 2 minutes and 4 seconds, a rate of 41.3 MBps. The second fastest drive, the USB 2.0 Imation Defender, took nearly three times as long--5:46, which translates to 14.8MBps.
