For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with MEGAMAC to offer a 128GB Angelbird SSD2go Pocket, which is a USB 3.0 ultra portable solid state drive that can, as the name suggests, fit right in a pocket. Angelbird is known for making high-quality products, and the SSD2go is no exception.

It has an aluminum casing and it's highly resistant to physical impact, vibration, force, and temperature. Of interest to Mac users, the SSD2go Pocket is one of the only mobile USB solid state drives to offer TRIM Support.

Is this drive compatible to use to install OSX externally? Might be a useful alternative to those super expensive SSD upgrades that Apple offers.

Wonder if this is any better than a USB flash drive, available for the same capacity as well as up to 1 TB storage.
Also, is this USB 3.0?
Yes, it's USB 3.0.
