Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

USB flash drives are undoubtedly one of the most useful accessories  - PCSTATS.com USB flash drives are undoubtedly one of the most useful accessories

USB flash drives are undoubtedly one of the most useful accessories PC users can have handy, at least until fast cloud storage is a reality. Whether you’re using one to transfer important files between work and home, or copying a video file from your PC to play on your Playstation 3, you probably can’t imagine life without one. USB 3.0 has gotten to the point where it is widely available, and it does to USB 2.0 what USB 2.0 did to the original format. If you aren’t aware of just how fast USB 3.0 is, put it this way – it is totally feasible to run a main system hard drive from it like you would with SATA. Now that the speed limit has been drastically increased, flash drive manufacturers are scrambling to come up with the fastest products possible. Today we are looking at Patriot Memory’s Supersonic USB 3.0 flash drive. It is the standard form factor that you’re used to, but with a quad channel memory controller inside. Patriot boasts that this will reach up to 100 MB/s peak read speeds, and an amazing 70 MB/s write. If you are still using a dual channel USB 2.0 drive, you are probably writing data to it at about 10 MB/s peak.

Any major computer upgrade generally requires a full software reinstall too. No so if you heed the advice in the guide to Upgrading a Motherboard without Reinstalling. PCSTATS Tips
