USB 2.0 vs USB 3.0

by on October 16th, 2010

It’s all about speed and oh my do I see the difference. I can never part ways with my Kingston DT Ultimate 32 GB that Kingston announced last month. “That is a monster”, one of my friends shouted out when she saw this hooked up to my laptop. Being a teacher and a tech student and just a tech lover, I go through A LOT of different programs throughout the day and thanks to this “monster”, saving files and transferring files is not slowing me down. And truth be told, I love the fact that it is big and bright because with losing something like this, I would cry (it’s the girl in me).

It comes in 16gb, 32gb and 64gb capacities. It offers data transfer rates for USB 3.0 to 80MB/sec. read and 60MB/sec. write while USB 2.0 offers transfer rates to 30MB/sec. read and 30MB/sec. write. Also comes with a five-year warranty. Opening the actual package was the hardest thing in using it. It is backwards compatible with USB 2.0, so as soon as you get through the battle of opening up the package, just put it in your laptop/desktop and begin to feel the speed.
