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 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 not hitting a full terabyte, 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.
