Super Talent announced a couple of affordable USB 3.0 Express DUO flash drives. Performance isn't too impressive though, the maximum read speed is about 67MB/s and maximum write speed only around 24MB/s. The Express DUO flash disks are available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacities for $14, $29 and $59, respectively.
Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced a new, larger capacity, 32GB version of their wildly popular USB 3.0 Express DUO line.
The fastest USB 2.0 flash drives are limited to a maximum READ speed of approximately 32MB/s. Super Talent’s new USB 3.0 Express DUO can top over 67MB/s when plugged into a USB 3.0 port, yet remains fully-backward compatible to USB 2.0… and for about the same price. Super Talent is offering the 32GB USB 3.0 Express DUO for only $59.
“The USB 3.0 Express DUO has been our best selling USB 3.0 flash drive to date. We are please to offer the larger capacity 32GB at such an aggressive price point. With USB 3.0 prices like these, there’s simply really no reason to buy a USB 2.0 flash drive anymore”., CH Lee COO of SuperTalent.

2011 will be the year that USB 3.0 goes ballistic, especially for applications like this where the full bandwidth can be put to use and file transfers and backups can take a fraction of the time they do on USB 2.
