Super Talent announced the USB 3.0 Storage POD enclosure:
Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of Flash storage solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced the USB 3.0 Storage POD enclosure, a hard drive enclosure that converts almost any 2.5" HDD into a USB 3.0 external hard disk.
Chances are you already have an external USB drive and its USB 2.0 connector is holding it back. The USB 2.0 bus keeps most drives from performing at their true potential and relegates their usage to simple storage backup. Now you can do something about it. By simply changing the enclosure, you can liberate your existing HDD and see double and even triple the speed - without reformatting.
USB 3.0 was made for external storage. With more available power and bandwidth, USB 3.0 unlocks the true performance of these drives and enables them to perform as fast as they could when hooked directly to the SATA bus.
The installation is simple, requires only two screws and takes less than 5 minutes to complete. Simply insert any 2.5" (9.5mm standard) SATA HDD into the USB 3.0 Storage POD enclosure. A specially designed rubber grommet surrounds your drive, holds it firm and provides peace of mind from shock and vibration concerns. Close the cover, apply two screws and this little project is finished.
With an MSRP of $29, the USB 3.0 Storage POD enclosure is a cost effective way to start taking advantage of your new USB 3.0 port. The USB 3.0 Storage POD Enclosure is in stock and will begin shipping immediately.
