It's incredibly fast, and everyone just LOVES speed!!! Your not going to upgrade to USB 3 it will just happen, did u upgrade from USB 1 ? I didn't I just found myself using USB 2 when I updated my computer system not an upgrade for USB just a new computer.... I won't go out my way to buy USB 3 pie cards I'll just find myself using it one day... Does that make any sense whatsoever.!!!?!?!?!
