Samsung Launches STORY Station 3.0 External Drive – Fastest They Say

Samsung Story 3.0 External Hard Drive

South Korea’s Samsung touts its new STORY Station 3.0 external hard drive with the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface as its fastest yet in its product portfolio.

The top-of-line 3.5-inch external hard drive offers 10 times faster speed compared to the previous USB 2.0 interface. The SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface offers a maximum transfer rate of 5 gigabits per second (Gbps) compared to 480 megabits per second (Mbps) in USB 2.0.

Samsung said users can now transfer 4 MB of music (equivalent of a 3-minute song) or image files (6megapixel camera in hi-resolution photos) in approximately 0.02 seconds and an HD movie in 2.3 minutes. The new interface is backward-compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1 interfaces.

The new external hard drive is available now in 1TB and 2TB capacities.
