This 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub is recommended for use with the U1 Series camera - particularly when connected to a Lenovo M600 PC. The thin, lightweight design takes up little space and especially great for notebooks. Fully backwards compatible with the USB 2.0/1.1 products. Plus, each port has its own separate power switch so you can control each port independently.
Technology seems to advance at ever increasing speeds. With the recent release of SuperSpeed USB 3.0, you can now transfer data at up to 10 times the speeds of the older USB 2.0 standards! Speeds of 5Gbps are a vast improvement over USB 2.0 that only supports up to 480Mbps. The USB 3.0 Hub is a great tool to expand a single USB 3.0 port into 4 ports, so now you can connect all of your USB devices at one time. Plus, its small and elegant design has been configured to be as thin as possible so as to not take up precious space in your lab. Yet, it is still backward compatible with your older devices, so you can still use it in conjunction with USB 2.0 devices.
