Most of you reading this post might have wondered – who needs a USB hub? There’s nothing particularly exciting about a USB hub and every computer has 2 or 3 of those. So, why do you need a new USB hub?
Believe me – When you get a USB 3.0 working, things start to get interesting. If you’ve witnessed the transfer rate difference between USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 – you’ll understand what I’m trying to say. Connecting external drives on through USB 3.0 gives you smokin’ performance.
The USB 3.0 I used for this review is the D-Link SuperSpeed DUB-1340.
