Freecom XS 3.0 is World's First USB 3.0 HDD
on the market, it's going to happen sooner than you expected, as today,
Freecom have taken the wraps off the new XS 3.0 HDD. Slated as the
world's first USB 3.0ย to run on the new technology, the external drive
is available in up to 2TB capacities (1TB, 1.5TB and 2TB) and boasts
speedier data transfer rates of up to 130 MB/s.
The new Freecom Hard Drive XS 3.0 is a fanless, rubbber-clad piece of
machinery that can handle AES 256 bit encryption and which is backwards
compatible with USB 2.0 which means that even if you don't have a 3.0
port, it will still work at 2.0 speeds.
We don't have the prices for the whole range, but the 1TB Freecom XS 3.0
External Hard Drive is expected to cost close to $175. All three models
will be available from mid-November so better have some cash saved if
you're looking to connecting one of these to your computer.
It looks sleek, not too pricey, but certainly needs to pass the test of
reliability before it gets our vote.
