    Super Talent backed up release of its DuraDrive MT SSD series with a new 32 GB variant of the Express Duo USB 3.0 flash drive. The 32 GB variant is priced at US $59, twice that of the 16 GB variant (priced $29). Measuring 67.8 x 17.2 x 7.7 mm, and launched in early November, the Express Duo presents an "affordable" range of flash drives that use the faster USB 3.0 interface. The 32 GB Express Duo offers read speeds of 67.3 MB/s and write speeds of around 24 MB/s. "The USB 3.0 Express DUO has been our best selling USB 3.0 flash drive to date. We are please to offer the larger capacity 32GB at such an aggressive price point. With USB 3.0 prices like these, there’s simply really no reason to buy a USB 2.0 flash drive anymore," said COO of Super Talent CH Lee.

    Hopefully it won't suck. Seriously. I just ended up getting a 2.0 mushkin stick cause all the 3.0 sticks are plagued with issues. Maybe this will be more matured.

    As with all new tech, and 3.0 is still fairly new. Personaly I think I'll wait a year or so to jump on it, my 2.0 sticks still serve me very well. :)

    They work in USB2.0, and they are still faster than most of the USB2.0 drives, even without USB3.0 ports.
    What issues, and what models? I have a launch Super Talent 16GB ExpressDrive USB3.0, and I haven't had a single issue with it.
