Seagate BlackArmor - 500GB *and* USB 3.0

The BlackArmor portable hard drive from Seagate is a nice portable solution with 1/2 Terabyte of storage, but what really sets it apart is its USB 3.0 connection.

What is USB 3.0 you ask? It is the newest USB standard that you'll start seeing in many devices during 2010. It allows you to transfer data up to 3 times faster than the USB 2.o devices you are using now. Imagine the time savings of backing up large files, photos, database, etc. It is also backward compatible so you can use it on 2.0 devices, but you'll lose the gain in speed.

The device retails for $99.99.
