If you are still using USB 2.0 flash drives then you might want to try USB 3.0 external drives and thumb drives to experience how fast to transfer files with this kind of technology. I’ve been using my USB 3.0 external drive a couple of years and it’s still working perfectly, transferring downloaded movies from my pc to the drive in just a short period of time.
The good news is there is already information about the next generation USB 3.1 cables/connector featuring much more user friendly design and much faster transfer rates (up to 10Gbps compared to the 5Gbps on the previous generation USB 3.0. There is information given that there are two types of end connectors in the case of Type C, so you can plug it in without worrying about direction and orientation. Plus, you don’t need to worry about vertical orientation either.
