photofast usb3 ssd2

One of the few things that you could upgrade on Apple’s new 11.6-inch MacBook Air would be its tiny Toshiba SSD and PhotoFast has an interesting way to do that. The Air USB3 Adapter allows you to easily transfer your old files over to the new drive, after which you’ll be able to continue using your old SSD as a speedy USB 3.0 flash drive. The replacement offers a 256GB module with a Sandforce SF-1200 controller which the company says will net you a 30 percent speed boost over the original, including transfer rates of 250MB/s on both sequential read and write performance. It’s an interesting idea, though the bad news is that there wasn’t any mention of an estimated release date or price.
