Benefits of Moving to USB 3.0
Moving to USB 3.0 provides lots of benefits, especially for users of external storage:
- Much faster data transfer for backups and primary storage
- Usable RAID 0 or RAID 1 arrays due to faster performance
- Universal alternative to eSATA ports with comparable performance
Although most USB 3.0 devices currently on the market are storage devices, USB 3.0 also promises to improve performance for video capture, wireless networking, and other high-performance devices that may currently be bottlenecked by USB 2.0 interfaces once these devices are available in USB 3.0 versions.
So, if you’re ready to upgrade to USB 3.0, how can you do it? Whether you’re a desktop PC user or a laptop PC user, there are several ways to make the move.
