Super Talent Introduces Encrypted USB 3.0 SuperCrypt™ Drive
Super Talent's USB 3.0 drive ranges in size from 16GB to 256 GB. Backwards compatible with USB 2.0, the drive has an amazing read speed of 240MB/sec with USB 3.0. They say it takes only 7 seconds to download a 600MB movie to your computer with the drive, if your OS can support the USB 3.0 standard - which not all can.
At the time of their press announcement, the drive was not yet available, but is now.
The new technology is patented, and a driver for the USB 3.0 USB drive can be downloaded, allowing many computers to utilize the USB 3.0 standard feature.
The drive can be ordered from Super Biiz for $840, with free shipping.
There does not seem to be any distinguishing identification for what the capacity of the USB drive is, at least from all the pictures I have seen so far, but I assume Super Talent has marked the drives in some manner.
At the time this article was written (May 1, 2010), I did not find any faked Super Talent 256GB drives, but unfortunately, that can change.
My knock around laptop, where I am typing this, has only 160GB of hard drive space. This drive could swallow it and not blink - and may be faster, too.
A really cool toy - and very useful, if you can afford it.
