The introduction of the USB 3.0 standard opens up some very exciting possibilities for the external storage market. Boasting 10x performance increase, it’s really fast, but performance alone can not topple a standard as pervasive as its predecessor, USB 3.0 also needed to be completely backward compatible; and it is. The rapid acceptance of the USB 3.0 standard is assured due to its complete backward compatibility with the USB 2.0 standard, ports and receptacles. A well written spec, USB 3.0 was designed to co-exist with USB 2.0 instead of replace it. USB 3.0 devices can work with USB 2.0 ports and USB 3.0 ports support USB 2.0 devices, but both at USB 2.0 speeds. Buried deep within new USB 3.0 (plugs and receptacles) are an additional five pins which provide two more data line pairs. When a USB 3.0 device is plugged into a USB 3.0 host, not only will it be possible to send and receive data up to 10 times faster, but the possibility to send and receive data concurrently using UASP drivers also avails itself. With the creation of USB 3.0, we can now create storage products to take advantage of these new capabilities. So, how do you go about creating a drive to go 10 times faster? You think outside the box. At SuperTalent, our engineers have created a drive that distributes data across two solid-state drives and combine their performance together. The technology is called RAID, and by combining the throughput of two fast SSDs we were able to create a drive that delivers USB 3.0 (10x) performance like no other. SuperTalent is proud to herald the introduction of USB 3.0 with our latest achievement, the USB 3.0 RAIDDrive™. It’s a RAID array of SSDs that delivers over 300MB/s – oh, and fits in your pocket.

Heat: We heard how hot they get and they really, Really do. Probably 50-55C at its hottest (top and bottom) and 25-27C on the sides. One of the hottest portable devices I've Ever use, but it's not unbearable nor was it a surprised. These USB 3.0 SSDs squeeze a Ton inside.
Size: This thing's a monster and looks like the hot girl's chubby best friend when alongside other flashdrives, But - that's when you realize this thing Is Not a flashdrive.
USB 2: Is as compatible as they say - has worked right out of the box with everything I've tried
USB 3: So far it's depended on the card/OS. I knew going into this that adopting such a young technology will not be without obstacles. Using this thing for the speeds its built for will Only lead you to obstacle after obstacle. The ONLY USB 3.0 computers I've run into have been the ones I've purchased and installed the cards in myself. Some cards have given me more trouble than the other, some none at all. Regardless - I've spent Way more time installing cards and trying to get the OS to recognize the drive than I have saved time in the USB 3 speed. Unless you're going to be transferring Large files from one location to another on a regular basis or running an OS off of it (or just want it it to have it) - this thing is Probably not worth your time. Oh and to clarify, many of these speeds claimed by SuperTalent weren't too heavily exaggerated. I was getting 200-290MBps SR (64GB), depending on the transfer.
All of that said, for those of you who think you'll be making use of this anywhere but your own personal computers - I'd wait until intel/AMD adoption comes around.
I own the "Super Talent 128GB USB3.0 RAIDDrive, Pocket SSD RAID Array ST3U28SRK".
My DAILY use of this drive consists of going back and forth between any one of my Acer laptops (USB 2.0) and my desktop computer which has a Gigabyte motherboard with built-in USB 3.0. I have a 100GB Truecrypt volume that I mount every time I plug in the drive.
I have had nothing but 100% reliability with this drive. I have CrystalDiskMark installed on my desktop, and it always shows around 312MB/s read scores. This drive smokes! I have also successfully used this drive on another desktop in my office that has a $15 USB 3.0 card with an NEC chipset.
This drive goes in and out my pocket every single day, and goes in & out of usb ports maybe 18 times a day. I never walk away from my office computer without putting it in my pocket.
Whoa, I almost forgot to mention that I use PortableApps exclusively. This drive has been tortured for 1 full year and is going strong just like the first day I received it.
