USB 3.0 Overview
Active Media Products Rolls Out
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 External SSDs
2.5-Inch 64GB and 128GB SSDs Reach
Speeds up to 230MB/sec
Fremont, California - February 16,
2010- Active Media Products, manufacturer
of SSDs and innovative USB drives, today launched the new Aviator-2
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 external 2.5-inch SSDs, which offer a 400% performance
gain compared to USB 2.0 external HDDs.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 supports transfer speeds up
to 4.8Gbits/sec -- ten times faster than USB 2.0. Aviator-2 SuperSpeed
USB 3.0 external SSDs take advantage of USB 3.0's massive bandwidth,
delivering unprecedented performance in a mobile flash storage device.
Measuring just over 3 x 5 inches, the Aviator-2 is slim enough to
slip into a jacket pocket.
The Aviator-2 is offered as an external USB
3.0 case-only to accommodate any standard 2.5-inch SATA HDD. With
a SATA HDD installed the Aviator-2 removes the bottleneck of external
USB 2.0 HDDs and unleashes the full speed of the hard drive.
Or for those who don't like to wait, the
Aviator-2 is available with a 64GB or 128GB Predator X7 SSD installed.
For ultimate external speed, the Aviator-2
plus Predator X7 SSD will move your data at speeds up to 200MB/sec.
Aviator-2 SSDs are designed for external use, and include
a felt carrying pouch and a USB 3.0 cable for connection to any USB
port. The Aviator-2 is fully backward compatible; it works in any
USB 2.0 or 1.1 port, but requires a SuperSpeed port to reach its full
performance capabilities. A USB 2.0 power cable is included to meet
the high power requirements of some HDDs, but the supplemental power
is not needed with the Predator SSD installed. SuperSpeed
USB is the ultimate interface for moving huge files in a hurry or
for backing up data onto an external drive, and the Aviator-2 SSD
is your best choice for extremely fast portable storage.

According to Jerry Thomson, vice president of sales
at Active Media Products, "These products effectively render
external USB 2.0 hard drives obsolete since for a few dollars more
you can plug a 2.5-inch hard drive into the Aviator-2 case and get
up to 200% faster performance. Or the Aviator-2 bundled with our Predator
SSD inside will blow away any hard drive with speeds above 150MB/sec".
Aviator-2 SSDs are available now through Amazon. Active Media Products
also offers Atomix USB 3.0 PCIe and Express Card adapters to easily
upgrade any desktop or laptop to USB 3.0.
