Even the most basic of users know that USB 3.0 brings significant data transfer speed increase compared to its predecessor USB 2.0. It is estimated that up to 70 percent of computers will support USB 3.0 by the end of 2012, while full adoption is expected by the end of 2014. New USB external devices won't really take over quickly, but it is widely expected that they will at least match their predecessors in number in 2015. When it comes to USB 3.0 external enclosures, the offer is quite rich.
