Seagate unveils the Black Armor PS110 USB 3.0 portable external hard drive performance kit for netbooks. Demonstrating its industry leadership in delivering advanced and easy-to-use storage solutions, this all-in-one USB 3.0 toolkit packages a 500GB 7200RPM 2.5 inch hard drive, power cable and PC express card, to deliver speeds up to three times faster than its USB 2.0 predecessor, making it one of the fastest portable hard drives available. “As we continue to amass vast libraries of HD photos, movies, & music, the storage needs of households are forecast to grow more than ten times between 2009 & 2013, and the average storage requirements will exceed a terabyte by 2013”, said Kurt Schreff, analyst of Parks Associates.

To address these growing storage needs, the Seagate BlackArmor PS110 USB 3.0 toolkit makes it easier and less time-consuming to store and share large amounts of rich digital content. This new super speed USB 3.0 interface allows easy transfer of large files to and from the external drive at sustained transfer rates of 100MB/s, which is three times faster than current USB 2.0 devices. The familiar scenario of waiting for large files to transfer will now be a thing of the past.

With the BlackArmor PS 110 USB 3.0 drive, a 25GB HD movie can be transferred in just four minutes versus the 14 minutes it would take using a traditional USB 2.0 drive. Simply plug the PC Adapter card into a notebook, connect one end of the included adapter cord to the PC card, the other end to the BlackArmor PS110 drive, and it is set. “The growing presence of large multimedia files in the home means that connectivity and speed is a top concern for a satisfactory experience,” said Dave Mosley, Seagate executive vice president, Sales, Marketing and Product Line Management. “The delivery of USB 3.0 further underscores our commitment to giving people an efficient way to store, access and share their digital creations.”
