PQI unveil Worlds First USB 3.0 2.5 inch Portable Hard Drive

PQI have released the first ever 2.5 inch portable harddrive that works over USB 3.0. The drive is called the PQI H566 and theoretically can reach speeds of up to 5Gbps making it ten times faster than a USB 2.0 hard drive.

The drive it’s self is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 connections allowing you to use it now on a regular USB 2.0 computer, but should you upgrade your PC in the future to one with USB 3.0 support you’ll then get the full benefit.

For design, the casing comes in metallic silver. The drive it’s self comes in three capacities of 320GB, 500GB or 640GB depending on what model you choose.

Each drive also comes with built in security software that provides encryption for your data making it more secure. In the event of you loosing your portable drive, you’ll have peace of mind that the encrypted data will be useless for the person who stole the drive.

Prices are not known just yet but we expect to see it showing up on various websites soon.
