Radically transforming how information is transmitted, USB connectivity has evolved to the point of being the fastest method of data transfer. With the blue colored ports and jacks of USB 3.0 spreading into mainstream use, utilizing the fast transfer rates of USB 3.0 in custom flash drives is a powerful option in choosing how to build your flash drive project.
As big computer manufacturers like HP, Dell, Apple, Toshiba and Sony are producing computers standard with USB 3.0 ports, suppliers of data transfer equipment have been employing the medium as the preferred method of transferring data – over Firewire and Thunderbolt technologies.
Equipping flash drives with USB 3.0 can increase read speeds up to 200 megabits per second. Not only is this valuable in quickly getting data off your removable storage, but for professionals in the media transfer business (like photographers, videographers or musicians), having access to quick data transfer speeds can increase the efficiency of their work.
Give your clients the quickest read and write speed available
Promotional USB flash drives that utilize USB 3.0 also make a big impression on clients. Custom flash drives are a great way to market your business and brand your image, and using USB 3.0 drives can add a modern and contemporary feel to your product.
One of the best parts about choosing USB 3.0 equipped drives is the backwards compatibility factor; USB 3.0 drives can be used on USB 2.0 ports. Though there is no speed increase when a USB 3.0 drive is plugged into a USB 2.0 port, having a drive with USB 3.0 technology takes into account clients who use newer computers that are equipped with 3.0 technology and can reap the faster read and write speeds – without alienating those with USB 2.0 equipped computers.
As industries have been transitioning their technology standards to USB 3.0, loading your flash drives with the faster data transfer connectivity will ensure those drives stay technologically up-to-date for years to come.
For applications where data must be readily available, USB 3.0 is the fastest and most technologically modern method to go with.
