Verbatim today announced its latest USB 3.0 offerings, in the form of three Store 'n' Go flash drives. The drives feature incredible transfer speeds of up to 70MB/s (write) and up to 120MB/s (read) via the USB 3.0 interface. As always, the drives are backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 ports, albeit with slower data rates. The Store 'n' Go drives have a 'push and pull' design, helping to protect the USB connector and eliminating the need for a cap.
Hans Christoph Kaiser, Business Development Manager Flash Verbatim EUMEA, went on to say that "USB 3.0 drives make a lot of sense because they are 100 percent compatible with USB 2.0 and offer far superior speeds to devices that have USB 3.0 ports. We are expecting the bulk of the premium USB flash storage market to migrate to USB3.0 within the next 18 months."
The Verbatim Store 'n' Go flash drives will be available this month in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants.
