In addition to USB 3.0 cables, cards, and USB hubs, the external USB 3.0 external drive market for mobile and desktop computer data backup drives is highest in demand. All storage manufacturers have completed the shift to USB 3.0 interfaces as standard on their HDD and SSD drive products. As such, a large variety of SuperSpeed data backup solutions are readily available, and that includes USB 3.0 memory card readers and remarkably fast USB 3 keychain drives as well.
Undoubtedly the debut of USB 3 interfaces on Apple Mac laptops and desktops was a crucial evolution to the future of SuperSpeed USB 3.0 peripherals for Mac. Delivering up to 10 times available speed bandwidth over aging USB 2.0, USB 3.0 promises to provide improved performance for a large variety of Apple computer peripherals and Mac add-ons. It's backward compatibility with traditional USB 2.0 and 1.1 accessories has helped make it an effortless transition to the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 standard. It happily coexists alongside Apple ThunderBolt ports, while offering lower-priced peripherals that don't need, or can't take advantage of ThunderBolt's dual-channel 10Gpbs bandwidth
Apple is now incorporating USB 3.0 ports on its MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, as well as the Mac mini and iMac desktop computers recently updated to integrate USB 3.0 speed ports. Apple has also indicated that in the coming year the cylindrical Macintosh Pro desktop tower will finally receive a significant revision that will incorporate both USB 3 and ThunderBolt II port improvements.
A truly broad selection of various other kinds of USB 3.0 personal computer accessories other than hard drives, USB 3 SSD's and keychain flash drives have yet to reach the marketplace. Nevertheless, we can look forward to an ever incresing array of products such as USB 3.0 printers and scanning devices, USB 3.0 HDTV tuners, web cameras, and SuperSpeed music and video recording equipment to reach the market in the months ahead which will be good for both Macintosh and Microsoft Windows users as USB 3.0 adoption rolls out throughout the computer technology sphere.
