PQI are claiming to have just introduced the world's first USB 3.0-ready 2.5-inch portable hard drive to market.

 

Dubbed the H566, it features a tidy sleek looking metallic silver casing and runs dimensions of just 128x82.5x17mm with a weight of about 200g. The drive can be purchased in capacities of 320GB, 500GB and 640GB.

But the highlight of the drive is of course its USB 3.0 support, giving far greater transfer speeds (in conjunction with a USB 3.0 equipped computer).

 

PQI is now shipping the H566 series portable drives to distros and retailers in mass volume. The drives come with a 3 year warranty.
