  1. ADATA has announced the release of a new solid-state drive equipped with both USB 3.0 and SATA II interfaces. Like Super Talent's recently announced UltraDrive MX, the new N004 can double as an external or internal drive, allowing users to install it as their primary drive or take it on the go. However, the latter stands out for its support of USB 3.0, which means you'll be able to take advantage of faster transfer rates when using it as a portable storage device.

    256Gb SSD with all these goodies... I don't think It will be very affordable, it might be launch between $400 an $600 which is still too much money for the capacity...

    Question with no prior thought: Would hooking it up through USB 3.0 internally be faster than SATAII?

    Prices on laptops, netbooks, tablets going to be much more. Still a lot of USB 1.1 are still be used. USB 2.0 has it ups and down. Now that USB 3.0 going to replace or be backward accessible to the prior versions or maybe not. Using this new tech on HDD controllers should be interesting but again cost factor to the customer might have to back off and wait for the initial price wars drop!
