Super Talent Announces World's First USB 3.0 RAIDDrive
USB Drives Support UAS Protocol to Attain Transfer Speeds up to 320MB/sec
Wow, awesome! This is what we ( or at least me), have been waiting for so long time. This is the future my friends :))
I'd give this one a "meh" if not for the USB 3.0 interface. Flash drive RAID arrays have been tried in the past (the Linux contingent will be pleased to know that it's possible under that OS), and generally the conclusion has been that the game was not worth the candle. If you buy high-enough-quality USB drives to get a decent transfer rate, you're throwing more money at the experiment than is really viable.
Maybe matters have changed, and high-speed memory has been working its way into flash drives; but I'll wait to see the performance you get out of this unit (and the price as well) before adding to my already-burgeoning thumb drive collection.
Of course, I'm not everyman, and chances are that someone out there needs 128 GB of storage in their pockets (and doesn't want to go the SSD or 2.5" mechanical hard drive route). Animators who work from home? Vain actors who want to carry HD copies of all their films with them at all times? Obsessive gamers who want all their games ready in case Thanksgiving dinner bogs down and they can sneak away to Mom's computer?
"I didn't cry when Bambi's mother was shot... but I cried when HAL was turned off."
I don't care much for the raid portion of this, what amazes me is how quick we now have an actually usb 3.0 product. Good Job to Super Talent.
