I love USB drives, I just think they’re so useful. USB 3.0 drives are even better, but they’re few and far between it seems. Kingston has just announced the DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 USB 3.0 flash drive that comes in 65gb, 128gb and 256gb sizes. It has transfer rates of up to 225MB/s read and 135MB/s write, which is pretty good I think.
