Using USB 3.0 for Storage Media Applications
Spurred by the increasing resolution and storage capabilities of consumer electronic devices, along with the wider availability of media via broadband Internet connections, users want a faster transfer capability to simplify downloading, storing and sharing large amounts of multimedia content. USB 3.0 will play a key role in providing the simple connectivity consumers want. In fact, by closing the gap between internal and external storage performance, USB 3.0 is bringing a fundamental shift to the storage market. Because USB 3.0 enables external drives to achieve data transfer rates as fast as a PC's internal drives, users will be able to take advantage of external storage much more than they have in the past.
