Super Talent Does USB 3.0 Flash Drive w/ RAID

Another tasty morsel stemming from CES 2010 is Super Talent's upcoming USB 3.0 RAIDDrive. Thanks to the enormous volumes of media files we can now download from the Internet, a quick solution to building a local storage capacity is a must, especially for HD film buffs. Not only does this new flash drive offer SuperSpeed technology, but acts as a portable RAID array that can fit snug in your pocket.

"This product underscores Super Talent's continued leadership in USB drives." said Super Talent COO, C.H. Lee. "We’ve developed the world’s first and fastest USB 3.0 flash drive, by integrating two SSD into a RAID array for maximum throughput. It delivers phenomenal performance and it incorporates our own patented technology, filed world wide and protected under US Patent #7,457,897 etc."

The RAIDDrive measures 95 x 34 x 15.4 mm, and will hit the market in three capacities: 32 GB, 64 GB, and 128 GB. Super Talent said in a recent press release that despite the USB 3.0 compatibility, consumers can plug the device into the slower USB 2.0 port, making it backwards compatible. This is ideal for consumers who haven't upgraded with a USB 3.0 motherboard, or have not installed a USB 3.0 PCI-e card.

Currently the product is on display at CES 2010. Super Talent said that shipments are already out the door, so look for the USB 3.0 RAIDDrive to hit resellers soon. Unfortunately, pricing was not provided.

    Too bad there's not a way to plug it into an eSATA port. This type of port will be a lot more common than ultra high speed USB for a very long time to come.
