USB 2.0 is slowly becoming “so last year” as companies begin to roll out devices all ready for the upcoming USB 3.0. One of the first companies to make a USB 3.0 device is none other than Buffalo Kokuyo with their 4-port USB 3.0 hub. The next wave is coming in so we might as well get ready for it.
The BSH4A03U3 is a 4-port USB hub that supports USB 3.0. The upper surface of the hub is ordained with blue LED lights and a high quality finish. The device comes with an included AC adapter that allows HDD portable devices, external USB DVD drive devices and power-hungry devices to connect with four connections possible at the same time.
The USB hub is compatible with both Windows and Mac Operating systems that includes Windows 7 32-bit, Windows 7 64-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit, Windows Vista 64-bit, Windows XP and Mac OS 10.4. The hub transfers USB 3.0 data at 5Gbps and transfers USB 2.0 data at 480Mbps.
A good thing about the hub is that it won’t clutter your desktop space as the device itself is relatively compact. The hub is compatible with conventional USB 2.0/1.1 and can connect directly with your existing PC. The 4-port USB 3.0 hub is already available in Korea for around $89 US, which seems a bit steep to some people. You can also get the device in either black or white.
