PQI Unveils the USB 3.0 Cool Drive U339V Ultra Light Flash Drive

According to market research, systems which support USB 3.0 and desktop peripherals, thanks to their gradual increases in popularity, are expected to become the new mainstream transfer interface by next year and quickly replace USB 2.0. In light of the growth potential within this market, PQI has followed up the recent release of its highly praised USB 3.0 Traveling Disk—the Cool Drive U368—by unveiling the USB 3.0 Cool Drive U339V Traveling Disk, the lightest drive of its kind available on the market today. In addition to showing off its product development capabilities and design prowess to the marketplace once again, this is also a reflection of PQI’s continuous commitment to meeting user needs. The latest model features a high transfer speed USB 3.0 interface, backward compatibility with USB 2.0, and even more power efficiency. A single chip manufacturing process enables the exterior to be slim and graceful and, at only 13g, it is the lightest device of its kind in the industry.

And talk about speed! With a high transfer speed USB 3.0 interface, transfer speeds are 10 times faster than current USB 2.0, which effectively saves time by effortlessly storing large picture and video files. On the outside, the USB 3.0 Cool Drive U339V features a sleek iron-grey color scheme coupled with the high quality and texture of an aluminum alloy casing. And with an exquisite brushed surface treatment, the U339V gives off a stylish tech vibe. To meet the storage capacity needs of different consumer segments, PQI offers capacity options which range from 8GB to 64GB.

PQI is dedicated to exponentially increasing Traveling Disk capacity and speed throughout the continuous expansion of storage requirements. USB 3.0 Traveling Disk can effectively solve file access speed issues while still allowing for the enjoyment and convenience of portability. The USB 3.0 Cool Drive U339V Traveling Disk is the ultimate choice in personal storage devices for 2011. For the latest PQI-related information, be sure to visit PQI's global website.

FINALLY a nicely sized USB 3 drive... too bad the writes aren't stellar and the performance is below standard for USB 3

If priced right though, this could work well

The best Flash Drive I've ever owned, my first one and still, the only one that still works from all the others I've also bought, is a pqi (128 MB, bought years ago) and its body is exactly like this one, only blue instead of gray. And despite being old it's still quite fast IMO (write @ 6 MB/s, read @ 12 MB/s).

Reads are better than USB 2.0, but my Patriot Xporter XT actually writes faster.

Reads, yes, writes? Not unless you buy a really cheap USB 2.0 drive. Even the cheap Super Talent USB 3.0 drive has better writes.
