SuperSpeed Data Transmission Without Replacing Your Computer

With transfer speeds of up to 5Gbit/s, USB 3.0 is one of the fastest ways of transmitting data between a host controller (usually a computer) and a terminal device such as a hard drive, camera, printer or media device, which makes it ideal for use with demanding data transmissions such as media streaming or when working with HD video as well as for speeding up all standard transmission (e.g. sending jobs to the printer), all in all making your life a lot easier. However, as it is only recently that USB 3.0 has been introduced, your computer, unless new, is unlikely to have the relevant ports to allow for such a high speed connection.

The Hama PCIe USB 3.0 Controller can change all that and provides you with an easy way in which to upgrade your computer from USB 2.0 to USB 3.0 without going through the bother and expense of completely replacing it. Simply install the card into the computer in order to allow the connection of 2 USB 3.0 devices.

Wide Ranging Compatibility

Don’t worry about old devices with USB 2.0 or USB 1.1 connections either, these are still able to be connected to the PCIe Controller’s USB 3.0 ports which are fully downward compatible so you don’t have to go around replacing everything. Furthermore, the Controller is also fully compatible with Windows XP, Vista and 7 systems, so can be installed in most modern computers.
