Dane-Elec USB 3.0 External Hard Drives And SSDs

Dane-Elec has unveiled a series of external hard drives, the So SuperSpeed HDDs and SSDs, that will support the upcoming USB 3.0 standard. These storage devices will provide data transfer speeds of up to 250MBps, which is roughly ten times the rate available in current USB 2.0 devices. The So SuperSpeed drives consist of USB 3.0 HDDs which range in capacity of 500GB to 2TB and come in 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch formats, along with 80GB and 160GB SSDs that have been re-branded as Intel M-25 drives. If your computer doesn’t have an integrated USB 3.0 port, then you can use the Dane-Elec USB 3.0 adapters for PCIe or ExpressCard slots. The So SuperSpeed drives will be released on December 11th, coinciding with the launch of USB 3.0-compatible laptops and PCs. The 500GB HDD is priced at $180. Meanwhile, the 80GB and 160GB SSDs retail for $400 and $800, respectively. [Geeky Gadgets]
