What is USB 3.0?
USB 3.0 is the next major revision to the Universal Serial Bus (USB). It offers the same ease-of-use and plug and plays capabilities as previous generations of USB technologies but with a 10X performance increase and better power management. For users of USB 3.0, the goal of connecting devices to PCs or notebooks is still the same as the USB 2.0 specification.
Why do you need that much speed?
USB 3.0 helps you save more time and USB 3.01 drive transfers files faster than USB 2.0 drives. Depending on the number of channels the transfer speeds and the type of files you transfer, USB 3.0 can save you a lot of time compared to standard USB 2.0 drives.
Why do I need a USB 3.0 drive when I use only USB 2.0 ports?
Due to the broad deployment of USB 2.0 devices in the market, USB 3.0 devices had to be backward compatible. Even when you use USB 3.0 drives on your USB 2.0 host devices, you'll save time.
Will a USB 3.0 drive work on my device with USB 2.0 ports?
USB 3.0 devices are compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 ports and connectors but will only run at the host device performance. USB 3.0 devices will, however, help to maximize the throughput of USB 2.0 ports.
