PQI leads the industry with its exclusive release of the world's smallest USB 3.0 traveling disk. The Intelligent Drive U819V is the solution to bulky traveling disks and thick USB 3.0 transfer interfaces. PQI applied COB encasement technology to USB 3.0 interface and overcame the transmission overheating problem after continuous research and improvements. At the same time, PQI solved the data reading problem caused by high-frequency noise while creating the lightest, thinnest, shortest, and smallest USB 3.0 traveling disk. The 3 centimeter disk delivers high performance and allows users to experience high speed transmission like never before.

PQI's Intelligent Drive U819V traveling disk has a sleek and simple look featuring clean lines and smoothly curving trim, creating a seamless, unitary exterior. The disk's glossy exterior coating in ivory white and midnight black gives off a beautiful, glittering silvery radiance. Additionally, there is a special LED display at the tip that flickers when data is being read. Furthermore, with user experience in mind, PQI has come up with a cap retention design. The complimentary, square shaped, transparent soft rubber not only serves as a cell phone ornament but also attaches to the end of the disk. When the cap is removed from the Intelligent Drive U819V, it can be inserted into the transparent rubber. This exclusive cap retention design is unusual, funny, and charming.



As user demand for high quality multimedia increases, the rise of the USB 3.0 transmission interface offers the greatest transmission speed of up to 5 Gbps/sec, which is 10 times faster than USB2.0 (480 Mbps/sec). USB 3.0 significantly reduces the time required for data transmission, reduces power consumption, and is downward compatible with USB 2.0. Also, the stable current of USB 3.0 prevents data loss caused by current instability. Being energy-saving and environmentally friendly makes USB 3.0 the best choice in an age that demands ever increasing storage capacity.

Lol, the N-th "smallest" drive which isn't the smallest... DeLock is offering drives half the size of this one. Same for Artic Cooling.

Read/write rate details no where to be found. This would be a good choice for readyboost use for netbooks/laptops.

Read with undesranding. Delock isnt the smallest pendrive with usb 3.0 as they dont offer those small pendrives in usb 3.0 ( and they arent even smallest in the usb 2.0 category as there was a pendrive around here that was smaller similar to the arctic cooler one).

How smaller can it be than DeLock Micro drives!? It was sometimes hard to even get it out of USB slot. Making it any smaller and it wouldn't even be possible to take it out...

Too small is a bad thing.

He means this is USB 3 not 2. This is THE SMALLEST USB 3 drive

Good stuff, USB3 drives are so big usually, will help in USB 3 adoption. Hopefully it won't be priced much higher than a USB 2 equivalent. Hopefully it actually is faster than USB 2 drives
