Who here finally took the plunge and upgraded to a USB 3.0 system? In all honesty I would of probably held out until around this time of the year had it not been for my newest venture into computer component reviewing. When I first started my system was on the verge of being put out to pasture and shot. It's kind of sad when you buy a used gaming laptop (for school, I swear!) that can go just as fast as your desktop, even in gaming and that desktop was built with top of the line components only a few years prior. Now I have no cause to complain. All's well that ends well I guess.

 

Components that can utilize the USB 3.0 interface are coming out in bunches. Remember, that this is still relatively new technology. It's only been out in the public for about 8 months now. However you no longer have to upgrade the entire system in order to take advantage of the USB 3.0 speeds. There are plenty of PCI-E expansion cards available at reasonable prices that can open up older systems to this superb technology. The biggest components being pushed with the USB 3.0 technology has been hard drive docks and enclosures.

 

The Icy Dock Screw-less 2.5" SATA HDD USB 3.0 Portable Enclosure is a newer incarnation into the enclosure market. The Icy Dock 2.5" SATA enclosure veers away from the standard look of the average USB 3.0 enclosure. There are smooth lines and a luxury look. Definitely an enclosure that doesn't disappoint the eyes. Icy Dock took their popular eSATA and USB 2.0 model screw-less 2.5" enclosures and gave them a USB 3.0 makeover. The aluminimum body and vents allow for good heat dissipation and the USB 3.0 interface allows for maximum speed.
