The Story Station from Samsung is a solid, reliable data storage to store your precious memories. The Story safely downloads and protects your lifetime memories video clips, photos, music files, and important data that are so valuable and not easily replaced.

The Samsung Story Station is the best storage solution to capture and preserve your life story and minimalism is the design concept of the Story Station. Every element, the finely brushed metal finish, simple jog dial, and red belted cable outlets underscores the sleek and refined style. The sharp contrast of gray and red is eye-catching and the solid, simple cover creates timeless beauty.

The simple but classical jog dial functions as a power switch and reflecting LED light, hidden on the bottom, softly displays power on/off status.

The Story Station is built to store your valuable data safely and keep it backed up using the Samsung Auto Backup and SafetyKey features.Moreover, you can protect private and confidential files and folders in the virtual drive, SecretZone, with complete confidence.

Samsungs environment friendly product supports “Power Saving Mode,”which saves power by automatically going into standby mode after 5 minutes of inactivity. The Story Stations heat dissipating design, the ventilation and the aluminum cover prevents heat buildup and keeps the drive inside cool.

Simply plug it in and go. No CD is needed for installation and you can see at a glance how much space is available, used, or designated as backup storage.

Thats why these drives are dropping like a stone as USB3 is 10x faster and these are to slow for modern stuff really, copying large HD movies to one from a i7 is like watching paint dry, none the less still a great buy for a 1.5tb HDD

is it quicker than sata?

Agreed usb 3 will be on every drive soon as it still plays nice with usb 2 so why not future proof your self and enjoy a speed boost when you do get usb 3.

Speeds are similar what I like about usb is no need for extra power on portable drives, also usb 3 cables tend to be more flexible , the esata cables I have are thick and not flexible, two important upgrades over esata for me. Also my usb devices can charge twice as fast again a good upgrade

not many people have usb3 yet tho... i dont even have eata lol

USB 3 is a marketing story when it comes to hard drives. The bottle neck is not the interface speed but the ancient hard drive technology itself. Have you seen any big improvements when gong from PATA to SATA, from 300SATA to 600SATA? No. The hard drives are as slow as ever.

The bottle neck is the interface if its usb 2, real world tests report at least triple the speed going from usb 2 to 3. The story of SATA 300 v 600 has nothing to do with usb 3 as far as I can see but I agree that hard drive speeds have not maxed out SATA 300 yet but that never stops them making a new standard.

Hi, iv just bought a new dell laptop last month. How would I check if it has USB3?
#11
IDE(ATA) to SATA comparisons are useless, because the transfer speed of both are the same (doh!)
SATA to SATA2 comparisons prove a much faster transfer rate
USB2 to USB3 there is no comparison, bus speed is 10x faster with USB3

but, and this is the important thing, though the conenction speeds are different, if the PC has bottlenecks in other area's then you will not notice a difference, for example if your motherboard only supports SATA1 then you will not see an increase with SATA2 drives, USB3 will be faster than 2.0.

The limitations of physical drive speed will eventually be seen at some point, but not with these connection methods right now.

Firewire is a much better connection type, and if you have Firewire 800 ... then use it, i'm still waiting to see some real world tests on FW800 vs USB3 ... but i suspect there will be little difference, accept FW800 has been around for what 5 years now ?.... but M$ and the accessories companies would rather you use USB then you can buy all the stupid hub things you'll need cause they refuse to implement daisy chaining in the hardware devices
