How to Select the USB 3.0

We all know that USB 3.0 is fast. Many things actually: as greater bandwidth, better power management and better bus utilization compared to USB 2.0.

Select the USB 3.0

USB 3.0 is not only fast, but very fast! Up to 60 times faster in some cases than USB 2:01.

It was like flying from Hong Kong to London in 12 minutes, not 12 hours. Just imagine. You open your favorite drink, drink a few sips, leaning back in his chair and suddenly, you are there. That fast.

In fact, as the 128GB SanDisk Extreme USB PRO USB 3.0 so quickly, you can download a movie in about 8 seconds. Compare table bar download USB 2.0 to USB 3.0. Like a sports car with the speed of a bicycle race. Download to 3.0 has been completed, while the 2.0 is still pumping the tires.

Clearly, USB 3.0 is very fast. But, speed is relative and when it comes to USB 3.0 they all are not created equal. And they all do not have the same speed.

So let’s look at some of the reasons why it happened. The first is the most basic. What if you do not have a USB 3.0 port on your computer? What will happen? Most laptops and PCs have these ports, but if your computer does not have it, USB 3.0 will still be faster than USB 2.0. How can?

Well, its port such as tunnels or water pipes. USB 3.0 sending data through the tunnel with a great rate by maximizing the capacity of the tunnel so that the end result is the possibility of greater download speeds than USB 2.0. But with a USB 3.0 port you get a ‘pipe’ that is much larger so that the data can run faster.

If the drive is USB 3.0 are not all the same, how to choose the best? Although many USB drives that may be claimed as USB 3.0, they may not actually provide the speed you want at all. In fact they may not be better than USB 2.0.

A little like your car breaking the speed limit. Let’s say the speed limit on the road is 50kph and 51kph speed you. Traffic police car stop you and say you have violated the speed limit.

You just edging slightly to the USB 3.0 speed region. But when police write you a ticket, speeding sports car 280 kph! Yes he is breaking the speed limit as well – he was also in the region of USB 3.0 as you, but he’s much faster.

And that’s the problem. When you go to the mall to buy a USB 3.0 computer new fancy, how do you know you are buying a vehicle 51kph which only shifted slightly to the territory USB 3.0 or a sports car?

You can distinguish three ways. The first is price. If the price is cheap, then rest assured that it’s not a sports car. The second way, is by looking at the logo on the side. And the third way is the specifications. Only a brand that truly confident in the spec sheet will list how much data can be transferred and speed.
