We received USB 3.0 port adapters from TRENDnet…I’m in possession of the 2-Port USB 3.0 ExpressCard Adapter, model TU3-H2EC.
(“SuperSpeed”) USB 3.0 can provide data transfer rates as high as 5 Gbps, which is ten times as fast as (“Hi-Speed”) USB 2.0. USB 2.0 can go as fast as 480 Mbps. (USB 3.0 is also faster than “FireWire 400”, “FireWire 800”, “FireWire S1600”, and “FireWire S3200″…)
USB specifications can be found at http://www.usb.org/developers/docs/
USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices, and supports all current USB speeds: Low-speed (USB 1.0: 1.5Mbps), Full-speed (USB 1.1: 12Mbps), High-speed (USB 2.0: 480Mbps), and SuperSpeed (USB 3.0: 5Gbps).
An external power adapter is supplied to enhance the ExpressCard in case USB devices try to draw too much power from USB ports.
It’s compatible with Windows 7, Vista, and XP.
Andy has the 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI Express Adapter, model TU3-H2PIE…
We’re waiting on delivery of USB 3.0 devices…as soon as we get some we’ll talk about them on our shows, blog posts, etcetera.
