Active Media Products outs USB 3.0 external SSDs

Active Media Products this week introduced two 2.5-inch external SSD drives with USB 3.0 connections. The Aviator-2 SuperSpeed SSDs are said to have performance theoretically four times faster than hard drives that rely on the USB 2.0 connection and has the headroom of the spec's full 4.8Gbps. Residing inside the USB 3.0 Aviator-2 case is Active's 64GB or 128GB Predator X7 SSD, which are rated at transfer speeds of up to 200MBps.

The complete Aviator-2 SSDs include a USB 3.0 cable and a felt carrying case. The USB 3.0 connection is backwards compatible with USB 1.1 or 2.0 connections.

The 64GB Aviator-2 SSD costs $250 on Amazon, while the 128GB is priced at $440. An empty Aviator-2 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 enclosure can be had for $30.
