Apple Compatible USB 3.0 Drives And Storage DevicesThe SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Universal Serial Bus standard for many Mac computing peripherals was an important advancement. It opened the door to much, much faster Apple compatible peripherals of all sorts at a far lower cost than ThunderBolt devices.
The USB 3.0 ports that were standard on many recent models of Apple computers are fully backward compatible with Mac USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 devices. That helps to preserve your existing investment in USB Mac accessories while opening options for even faster gizmos and gadgets. One of the first categories of products to rapidly adopt USB3 was in the Mac backup drive marketplace. All major drive and storage device manufacturers switched to USB 3.0 chipsets very rapidly, and it's happening again with the transition to 10Gbps SuperSpeed Plus USB 3.1 connectivity.

With potentially up to ten times the performance over legacy USB 2.0 ports, solid-state SSD drives are a far better match for the bandwidth available on a SuperSpeed USB 3.0/3.1 port. It's an ideal combination for high speed file transfers and data backups in a fraction of the time it used to take. With prices per gigabyte of SSD storage now reaching .25 cents per GB or less, and drive capacities of SSD's now hitting a full terabyte or more, external USB 3.0 SSD drives are becoming far more affordable for a Mac compatible backup storage solution. For home and small business users they deliver performance rivaling a ThunderBolt drive at a much, much lower cost.
