Advances in IT and computing technology happen daily so new hardware models and improved computer memory performance aren't anything new.

USB 3.0 technology applied to external hard drives combines the best of portable technology with the benefits of speedy performance. The upshot is an external hard drive connected to your machine via a USB 3.0 port gives around ten times the transfer speed of a standard USB 2.0. A USB 3.0 port is required to achieve best performance. While the loss or gain of a second or two may not make much of a difference to your day-to-day life, in computer terms the advance is significant.

The transfer of larger files is also quicker so you no longer need to wait around staring at the progress bar while shifting your pictures and music from the My Documents folder to an external drive to free up PC space.
