The QuickPort USB3.0 is supplied in almost identical packaging to the QuickPort Pro. Inside the box however we find fewer accessories; this model has only USB3.0 connectivity so there are no other cables supplied (note: USB3.0 is backwards compatible with USB2.0). Sharkoon also supplied us with a USB3.0 Host Controller card to test with the QuickPort USB3.0. This is also supplied in a small cardboard box with a driver CD.
The QuickPort USB3.0 is almost identical to the QuickPort Pro LAN in design however it doesn’t have a built-in USB hub or multimedia card reader. The USB3.0 functionality of the unit promises to improve file transfer speeds by about 10 times over USB2.0.

We will be putting it up against some of the best drives the competition can offer to see how this new model performs.
