I was wondering, why are vendors over hyping USB 3.0 so much now.
They are advertising it as 'amazingly fast' @ 3,200 MBPS, but the thing is, the fastest hard drive I have ever seen, was a Â£350 256GB Sata 6Gbps SSD, which, might as well go inside the case as a boot drive. The storage drive will the be used for external, and these, I have never seen hit 150MBPS let alone 3,200MBps. What's with the hype?

You have to first create a new technology to then create products compatible with it. There is for example a LaCie external hard drive that supports USB 3 and has impressive speeds..

Additional transfer speed is nothing to scoff at, especially if you are transferring large files. For storage, backup, and high speed data transfer, USB 3.0 will be a well needed upgrade. Hardware manufacturers still have to catch up, but with potential for 3K+ MBps transfer, backups will be far less of a chore with the next gen hardware that really brings the speed to life.
