Buffalo Kokuyo 4-port USB 3.0 hubUSB 2.0 is slowly becoming “so last year” as companies begin to roll out devices all ready for the upcoming USB 3.0. One of the first companies to make a USB 3.0 device is none other than Buffalo Kokuyo with their 4-port USB 3.0 hub. The next wave is coming in so we might as well get ready for it.

The BSH4A03U3 is a 4-port USB hub that supports USB 3.0. The upper surface of the hub is ordained with blue LED lights and a high quality finish. The device comes with an included AC adapter that allows HDD portable devices, external USB DVD drive devices and power-hungry devices to connect with four connections possible at the same time.

The USB hub is compatible with both Windows and Mac Operating systems that includes Windows 7 32-bit, Windows 7 64-bit, Windows Vista 32-bit, Windows Vista 64-bit, Windows XP and Mac OS 10.4. The hub transfers USB 3.0 data at 5Gbps and transfers USB 2.0 data at 480Mbps.

A good thing about the hub is that it won’t clutter your desktop space as the device itself is relatively compact. The hub is compatible with conventional USB 2.0/1.1 and can connect directly with your existing PC. The 4-port USB 3.0 hub is already available in Korea for around $89 US, which seems a bit steep to some people. You can also get the device in either black or white.
