External drives are often one of those things that tend to slip your mind when planning your computer dream system. Well, to be honest, all the best hardware in the world is nothing compared to the value of irreplaceable data. We’ve seen too many people lose important data, loses that could have been easily prevented or avoided with a simple backup drive.

Data backup today is more convenient and economical than ever. Costs have dropped considerably, and large-capacity hard drives can be found at very reasonable prices. The only problem with large external drives is that it takes forever to transfer huge amounts of data across a traditional USB 2.0 interface. Even with eSATA, the speed improvements are good but certainly not as fast as native SATA speeds. To combat these issues, USB 3.0 has arrived, and offers a massive speed boost over both USB 2.0 and eSATA. The only drawback is that the USB 3.0 technology hasn’t really hit mainstream acceptance yet, but it is moving in that direction. For early adopters, though, the speeds available are tremendous, making slow external disk enclosures a thing of the past. The other bonus is that USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with your USB 2.0 interface so it does have some futureproofing.

The Rosewill RX358 USB 3.0 is an external drive enclosure that utilizes the speed of the latest technology in an extremely easy to use hot swap setup to serve all your backup and storage needs. And to show you what a massive difference that USB 3.0 makes, we’ll be using a very fast Solid State Drive to show you not only how close USB comes to SATA II, but also how USB 2.0 is left behind in the dust.

Follow along with us as we take a close look at the Rosewill RX358 USB 3.0 enclosure and see for yourself just how fast an external drive can be.
