How many of you do own a computer that runs off USB 3.0? It is still a fairly new port to own, but that doesn’t mean it won’t be the mainstay in years to come. In fact, more and more motherboard manufacturers are already working on newer models that will accommodate USB 3.0 connectivity, so it makes perfect sense if you were to future-proof your purchases by including USB 3.0-compatible devices as well. The Silicon Power Blaze B10 would be a good place to start if you have no idea on where to begin, as it is not only a USB 3.0 flash drive, it will also boast of pre-loaded software encryption for added security.

The device itself will warm up whenever you use it (of course, the same applies to just about any kind of consumer electronics device unless you’re running a top end cooling system), which will make the color of the heat sensitive ink-based pattern on its side to change color from blue to a bloody red. This is a novelty by all measures, but at least it is different from other USB flash drives that are in the market. Perhaps it could function as some sort of warning should the drive get too hot for comfort.

Capable of hitting speeds of up to 70MB/s, it will not drop an jaws but is decent enough in performance where a flash drive is concerned, tipping the scales at a mere 9.5 grams. Even better news is the Blaze B10 sporting a lifetime warranty – something that is of rarity these days. Depending on your needs and budget, the Blaze B10 will come in various capacities ranging from 8GB to 32GB.
