“Initially, we are releasing USB 3.0 products focusing on applications that would most benefit from the dramatic performance boost offered by the new interface, specifically the transfer rate speeds, such as external storage” said Keith Rodrigues, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com. “Although USB 2.0 has provided easy connections for such applications, As more and more USB 3.0 devices become available from manufacturers in the coming weeks and months, our product offering will expand as the necessity for USB 3.0 connectivity solutions grows.”
