USB 3.0 technology is now a consumer reality. According to CNet News Buffalo Technology is officially the first company to ship a USB 3.0 hard drive. The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 external DriveStation HD-HX83 is available now in 1 TB, 1.5 TB and 2 TB sizes. Buffalo is also selling a two-port USB 3.0 PCI card in order to allow users to upgrade their PCs as well.

USB 3.0 currently delivers data at speeds about 3x that of USB 2.0 devices. However, it's worth noting that all USB 3.0 technology is fully backwards compatible. You can plug this new HD into your existing machine and use it just fine, albeit at USB 2.0 speeds.

Buffalo states that their drive is now shipping out to Microcenter, and should be available for purchase by December 7. The 1TB drive should cost $199, while the 1.5 TB will cost $249 and the 2TB will cost $399. For more information, check out the product's website here.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
