CES 2010 - Seagate had an updated version of the BlackArmor portable HDD here at CES. The new model uses USB 3.0 but is just as small as the original.

This was the first look we had at the new mini USB 3.0 connector.

The receiving end of the plug looks like this. The pins are sideways on the mini and much smaller than the full size USB 3.0 plug.

The performance of the Seagate BlackArmor with USB 3.0 was actually better than the build in HDD. Here we see the BA USB 3.0 on the left, the onboard HDD in the center and a BA USB 2.0 on the right.
