PQI decided to roll out a USB 3.0 device for the masses in the form of the CoolDrive U368, whre this model is capable of hitting data transfer speeds of up to 105MB/s, and even so that is not the limit since taking full advantage of the bundled TurboFlash USB software will be able to see another increase. One thing’s for sure though, the PQI CoolDrive U368 will not be that pocket-friendly (relatively speaking) when pitted against other USB flash drives that you’ve probably gotten used to over the years, no thanks to a 90.1mm x 22mm x 11.1mm measurement. While you can opt for the entry level 8GB model, there are also other capacities to choose from if you have deep pockets – we’re talking about 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities. No idea on pricing or availability as at press time, but expect to pay a premium for USB 3.0 flash drives at the moment until the technology becomes more commonplace.
