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.

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).

And talk about speed!

  • Transfer Speed: 8GB Read: 55MB/s, Write: 10MB/s, 16GB to 64GB Read: 68MB/s, Write: 20MB/s
Yeah, talk about speed, cause you aren't going to find it here!

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