PhotoFast GM3000EX - USB 3.0 ExpressCard Host

 

Taipei, Taiwan. Apr. 12th 2010 - PhotoFast Global Inc. a pioneer in creative, high quality and extreme performance flash-based storage manufacturer, today revealed its new line up of USB 3.0 accessories. Relied the new standard and host controller introduced to the market, PhotoFast demand to bring even higher transfer rates to meet the bottleneck where every user has experienced before.

 

The new USB 3.0 standard is a potential opportunity for user to appreciate the full transfer rate from new external enclosure that doesn't degrades magnetic HDD or SSD. Its new 4.8Gbps band width which is 10 times faster than USB2.0 will increase 3 - 4 times of your existing drives.

We are not the first manufacturer making USB 3.0 host because we wanted to do it right. Before the launch of GM3000EX, what's available on the market is with a protrudent plastic which needs to be inserted and pull out on each travel. Well, we couldn't stand it this way so we redesigned a hidden Type A female connector, which makes the whole thing much delightful.

 

The power supply come out of ExpressCard slot is very limited. The early developed standard allowing us to acquire around 300mA, that is enough for some small portable devices but not magnetic HDD. Instead of other similar products, we don't offer just an extra cable for getting power from another USB port. We combine it into the same cable that allowing user to connect external USB 3.0 devices. As most USB 3.0 HDD enclosures selling now is with a Type B micro female connector. The split cable (Y Cable) included comes very handy in practical.
