Thinking about buying a solid state drive (SSD) and combining it with an original hard drive (i.e., traditional hard drive with moving parts) to leverage the ability of Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT) so one can see his or her desktop runs way more faster (watch a video on SRT)? Sure, it’s one of the best ways to go for making a desktop opens up stuffs way way more faster than you’ve ever seen before, but don’t forget you must have a motherboard that supports SSD caching. How about just going pure SSD? Many SSDs today require you to hack open up your PC’s case and attach them within the case, kind of inconvenient if you ask me. However, there is a better way since I just notice that Super Talent releases a super cool USB 3.0 RAIDDrive which churns data a little less or equal to 370 MB/s.
Super Talent’s USB 3.0 RAIDDrive is faster than a traditional internal hard drive. Since this is USB 3.0 technology kind of drive, you need to have a USB 3.0 port(s) on your computer to be able to use it. Ain’t this device is one more reason for you to go out and grab a USB 3.0 controller card? So, in a way, I love to have my hand on Super Talent’s USB 3.0 RAIDDrive and leveraging SRT to speed up my computer altogether without abandoning my traditional hard drive (of course I must make sure my motherboard supports SSD caching).
According to Engadget, Super Talent’s USB 3.0 RAIDDrive comes in sizes of 25, 50, and 100 GB; prices are varies for sizes are varies. Engadget hints that 50 GB Super Talent USB 3.0 RAIDDrive goes for $110.
The video within this post suggests that Super Talent’s USB 3.0 RAIDDrive utilizes two SSD cards in one, that’s if I’d comprehended what the guy in the video had said — it means this baby transfers data faster than normal SSDs. Enough with the hype, truthfully, I don’t really know how well this device will behave and how long it will last and how reliable it’s on its promise in term of data transfer speed at the rate of 370 MB/s, little more or less — all because I’ve never ever used this product before. This is why you must do a lot more of soul searching before spending some hard earned dollars of yours on this device! Anyway, check out the video right after the break to know more about Super Talent’s USB 3.0 RAIDDrive.
