The U32 Shadow™ USB 3.0 SSD incorporates a high-performance Solid State Drive (SSD) to provide fast, silent, and durable performance. With no moving parts within the solid state drive, it delivers immediate access time — great for HD video editing. The stylish design features a unique aluminum body engineered to effectively dissipate heat and provide rugged portability. The Shadow provides speeds of over 400 MB/s* when connected to a USB 3.0 port — up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. Powered by the USB bus, the Shadow requires no external power adapter or custom drivers, making it the perfect portable storage solution. * These speeds were obtained using a MacBook Pro 2012 USB 3.0.
