When you are looking at some of the devices that are available, you may be wondering what are the differences between a USB 2.0 and a USB 3.0. One of the main differences is its speed. Expect that a USB 2.0 will have a transfer speed of 480 Mbps.

The speed of the USB 3.0 is going to be much faster at 4800 Mbps. This means that if you would choose the USB 3.0, you can expect that the transfer of the various files that you may have are relatively faster as compared to the USB 2.0. This can be very helpful especially when you know that you need to transfer media files in a limited amount of time.
