The Storage POD needs no external power adapter, no drivers to install and weighs a mere 200 grams. Reaching speeds of up to 90 MB/s, for about the same price as a USB 2.0 external drive, the USB 3.0 Storage POD delivers on price, performance and convenience.
Starting today, Super Talent will begin offering the 500GB Storage POD for $100. The USB 3.0 Storage POD will start shipping in early January.
