You read the headline correctly on this one. Not only is it USB 3.0, but they are available in 120GB and 240GB. These USB drives are packed with a high-performance LSI SandForce controller that can read at 455 MB per second, and write at 440 MB per second. You can also install Windows 8/8.1 on it, so you can have a bootable and fully functional Windows environment for wherever you want to plug it into. In fact, I am told that by downloading and installing Boot Camp drivers will allow you to run Windows on a Mac.
In short, the VisionTek USB Pocket SSD is like having a hard drive in your pocket, and it is made with aircraft-grade aluminum so it is very, very tough. You should be able to get the 120GB model for $109.99 here and the 240GB model for $174.99 here. This is relatively cheap compared to the competitors.
As a bonus, I have a little video from LinusTechTips about this product, and I think it is pretty interesting. I wonder if I could do videos…hmmm.
