One of the great new features of the new Apple portables is the addition of USB 3.0 capabilities. Now we can get data transfer speeds faster than FireWire 800 out of the same port we use for our printers and wired keyboards. More importantly, we can finally get some decent, bus-powered external drive performance on the MacBook Air, that is also able to be used on earlier systems.
Of course, the trick to getting that speed is making sure both sides of the USB chain are USB 3.o capable. Hooking a USB 2.0 drive up to a USB 3.0 port is going to – you guessed it – only run at USB 2.0 speeds. Fortunately we’ve been bringing our line of Storage Solutions over to USB 3.0 for a while now. These solutions currently have at least one USB 3.0 configuration:
All these models are ready to go, whatever your SuperSpeed storage needs may be. Of course, if your favorite enclosure line isn’t currently configured for USB 3.0, don’t worry; odds are that it will be soon. Stay tuned to the OWC Blog for future release details as they become available.
It’s June, and while many are excited about the upcoming new hardware at WWDC, there are a lot more of us who just want to make the most out of what we already have. Like every month, this month’s Garage Sale is chock-full of great deals for adding to and upgrading your current computer, extending its useful life for a fraction of what these new machines will cost.
So, let’s take a look at what we’ve got this month.
As always, items are “first come, first served” and of varying limited quantities, so you’ll want to act quickly. Quantities are limited to that which is on hand and items automatically count down and ‘disappear’ as sold out. Sorry… no rain checks.
It’s the middle of the month of April, and you know what that means. No, not that every “light” radio station and canned music service has that awful Celine Dion song seemingly stuck on endless repeat (though that does seem to be the case); it means it’s time for April’s garage sale.
This month we’re making a “splash” with a bunch of great deals you can “sink” your teeth into without having to pawn that improbably large diamond you’ve been hiding all these years.
Here’s just a few of the great deals this month.
As always, it’s “first-come, first served,” so grab these great deals while you can; quantities are limited to that which is on hand and items automatically count down and will disappear as they’re sold out. Sorry… no rain checks.

Well, it’s a busy, busy, busy time of year for us. We’re winding down from the holidays, we’ve got a lot of products being released/announced at CES, and we’re looking forward to Macworld, too. However, we’ve always got time for a great deal, and our Garage Sale Page is chock full of them.
So without any further ado, let’s take a look at what you can find this month:
