Faster Portable Drive

With USB 3.0, the next generation of the popular USB standard for connecting peripherals, this portable hard drive can transfer data up to three times as fast as USB 2.0 drives can. The hard drive has 500 gigabytes of storage capacity and comes with an adapter card for laptops not equipped with built-in USB 3.0 ports. (The new ports are compatible with USB 2.0 devices and cables, but USB 2.0 cables cannot be used with USB 3.0 devices.)
