IOGEAR has introduced its USB 2.0 MicroHub for consumers and SOHO users. The MicroHub allows users to access 40 times faster connection speeds than standard USB 1.1 devices.
IOGEAR’s 4-port hub gives users faster data connection rates of up to 480 Mbps, all within a device that is smaller than a business card. This increased speed allows users to benefit from a range of high performance input devices including storage, printers, scanners and digital cameras.
The 0.7” x 2.5” x 1.8” MicroHub weighs only 1.6 ounces. It is both Mac and PC compatible. The product is priced at $29.95 (MSRP) and is now available from all major catalog resellers, online resellers and selected retail outlets.
“IOGEAR’s MicroHub expands the connectivity potential of a laptop or desktop computer while still remaining small enough to be tucked out of sight,” said Miranda Su, vice president of sales and marketing at IOGEAR, Inc. “The tiny 4-port hub enables home and professional users to connect to all of today’s high-tech peripherals with a single device.”
IOGEAR’s Hi-Speed MicroHub is USB 1.1 backward compatible and hot swappable. The device supports Windows 98, 98SE, 2000, ME, XP, as well as MAC OS X or later operating systems. It comes packaged with a power adapter and is backed by IOGEAR’s three-year limited warranty.
