Enter Sonnet’s USB 3.0 ExpressCard/34 adapter*, the bottleneck breaker! This Sonnet host controller is based on the new USB 3.0 standard that offers up to 10x the performance of the decade-old USB 2.0 interface. A single hard drive with a USB 3.0 interface is capable of transferring data at up to 125 MB/s, while SSDs (solid state drives) are capable of even faster transfers–insert Sonnet's USB 3.0 ExpressCard/34 adapter into your notebook computer's ExpressCard slot to exploit the full performance potential of these fast drives.
