USB 3.0 has really been catching on. Every new motherboard coming out has USB 3.0 connectivity and almost all the new cases have front-mounted USB 3.0 ports. USB 3.0 is 10 times faster than USB 2.0, but the only devices that can truly take advantage of this speed is solid state drives and flash drives. Today we will be looking at a 32GB USB flash drive from Patriot dubbed, “Supersonic”. Let’s check it out!
