GoFlex-drive-USB-3.0

Seagate has released the new GoFlex drive series, and to make them more appealing, it’s offering you the chance to take full use of the USB 3.0 speeds.

USB 3.0 mighht be the next big thing in data tranfer, with speeds theoretically 3 times highr than USB 2.0, but it’s still such a new technology that Seagate couldn’t incorporate it in the new GoFlex external drives. But it’s done something almost as good. The company is now selling a smart kit that will turn any laptop’s Express Slot into a USB 3.0 port for one of its GoFlex drives.

To experience the unbelieveable speeds of USB 3.0, all you have to do is connect an adapter to the GoFlex drive, and then plug it into one of your laptop’s USB 2.0 slots. It may not be the most comfortable, or good looking solutions, but until something better comes along, it’s totally worth the advantages of the new USB 3.0 technology.
