The Intel Quick Storage Technology is the latest in a series of new products aimed at improving the performance of Windows 8 and Windows 10.
Unlike the new Intel SSDs (or any hard drive) that can be accessed via a USB connection, the Quick Storage Technology has a USB 2.0 interface. That means you can plug it into a USB port on your computer and then get access to your SSD from there.
I have to give the Quick Storage Technology credit, it is a nice product overall. I like the fact that it is USB 2.0 compatible, something I find a bit limiting with hard drives. The only downside is that you can only store up to 2TB of information per port. But that’s actually a good thing, because the price is relatively low.
I think I would have been happier with an SSD without the ability to do backups. I have a 500GB SSD that is still in the box because I don’t think it can use the 2TB capacity. I am not sure if that is because I am using it in a windows 10 system where there is no USB 2.0 support and I have a lot of games that have a lot of file size.
Hard drives are really awesome. You can store a lot of data on them, and since these drives are relatively cheap you can store pretty much anything you want. And since the only downside is that you can only store around 2TB, you can have a lot of space.
On the other hand, if you want to use a lot of storage on a hard drive you can’t use a lot of storage on one of these drives.
One of the things that’s been exciting about the Windows 10 1903 update is that it allows you to use your Windows 7 computer to access your Windows 10 system from a Windows 10 1903 computer. You can do that by using a USB drive that plugs into your Windows 7 computer.
