With the launch of XS 3.0, Freecom has become the first company that release a portable hard drive that uses USB 3.0 technology.

Freecom, through its official release, also states that the XS 3.0 hard drive supports USB 2.0 backward compatibility.

Until now, there are only few devices that apply USB 3.0. Consumer goods is expected to immediately apply the USB 3.0 in 2010. The first motherboards that have been using USB 3.0 is the Asus P6X58, but unfortunately, this motherboard was canceled before it could be produced.
