Century Gives USB 3.0 Compatability to "Old" Hard Drives

Grab hold of a friend because it's about that time of year again: new standards! With USB 3.0 being pushed towards mainstream faster that you could say, "Terabytes, what?!" it's good to know there are companies like Century out there who are more than ready to help out (or cash in, depending on how you look at it) in the compatibility market.

So, if you have a portable 2.5" hard drive laying around, you can check out Century's USB 3.0 enclosure that gives you the benefit of the new USB standard transfer rates. With backwards compatibility to your "older" USB 2.0 ports and a neat-o screw-less design, upgrading to the latest and greatest USB technology should be a breeze. Now, if we could just find a computer that actually has a USB 3.0 port...

You can pre-order the Century USB 3.0 2.5″ HDD/SSD enclosure for $48. Ships on April 10th.
