Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

SIIG USB 3.0 Bay Hub & USB 3.0 Card Upgrade Kit - SIIG USB 3.0 Bay Hub & USB 3.0 Card Upgrade Kit
Wed, Jan 26 2011 | 12:01PM | Filed under: Motherboards| PermaLink Posted by: STAFF

While USB 3.0 is certainly starting to garner more and more attention from motherboard manufacturers, and consumers in general, one thing still remains an issue with USB 3.0: lack of front SuperSpeed ports on cases! What is worse, the handful of cases that DO have front USB 3.0 ports, don't have internal USB 3.0 headers and rather rely on extremal connectors; meaning you need to snake a cable out and around BACK of the case. This is not a good thing. SIIG understands the need for front mounted ports and has created a very interesting combination kit, that is a PCI Express x1 USB 3.0 adapter AND a front SuperSpeed USB 4-port hub 3.5" / 5.25" bay adapter. This combination means you can get ALL the benefits of USB 3.0 without needing to reach around the back of your case to USE it! Read on for my full review.
