Custom USB 3.0 Flash Drives: Ready, Set, Go?
For two years now, the adoption of USB 3.0 has fought a steady uphill battle toward mainstream adoption in our computers and portable devices. However in the past few months, this SuperSpeed interface has gained momentum thanks to hundreds of product certifications by USB-IF that have brought some of the first USB 3.0 flash drives, hard drives and other peripherals to online and retail shelves. Consequently, it begs the question—when will we get our hands on custom USB 3.0 drives?
For those of you who haven’t read up on USB 3.0, it’s the latest generation of the computer interface we all use, whether you have a PC or Mac. USB 3.0 improves on previous data transfer capabilities with ten times the speed. The connection also takes it easy on your computer system by using less energy in its power regulation. What’s more is that you don’t have to necessarily toss your current devices because it is backward compatible with USB 2.0.
Accounting for all these factors, a custom USB 3.0 flash drive is ideal for those of you who need to transfer large amounts of data on a consistent basis. While SuperSpeed has yet to make its way into the Premium USB lineup of custom flash drives, promotional flash drives, retail USBs and bulk products, it’s expected to arrive in only a matter of time.
The need is there—creative industries and their clients must frequently store and view videos, presentations as well as other multimedia from flash devices. As more businesses go digital in storing documents and other records, the demand for larger, faster storage grows. That’s where USB 3.0 flash drives come into play.
USB 3.0 has just barely dipped its toes into the mainstream. Once it’s dived into motherboard integration and increased standardization of our daily gadgets, Premium USB is guaranteed to stay ahead of the curve to bring you this new technology at the affordable prices you’ve come to love.
