Transfer an MP3 file in less than one one-hundredth of a second, or a term paper in the blink of an eye. That's the power of SuperSpeed USB 3.0, now fully utilized by Samsung's latest "Story" hard drive.
The Samsung Story Station 3.0 is a 3.5-inch external hard drive that offers data transfer speeds of up to 10 times what its previous Story products could do.
"The Samsung STORY™ Station 3.0 has been built for advanced users who demand fast transfer speed and data security without sacrificing design," said Samsung's storage product marketing VP H.S. Lee.
The device uses the new SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, which offers blazing transfer speeds of 5 gigabits per second, an enormous jump over USB 2.0's 480 Mbps rate.
The Story Station is available in sizes from 1 TB to 2 TB, and comes with a variety of data encryption and backup software programs.
The product is now globally available.
