USB.3.0 is slowly but surely finding its legs in the PC market. Products like the Iomega 3.0 USB external SSD (Solid State Drive) or the Western Digital 3.0 1TB External HDD are already available in the market. Thanks to the early adoption by Motherboard manufacturers like Gigabyte and Asus, more and more users are able to take advantage of the new standard. The draw is obvious since USB 3.0 provides a seven-fold speed increase from USB 2.0’s 480 Mbit/s to 3.2 Gbit/s.
