Transcend Two-Port USB 3.0 ExpressCard Adapter Makes ExpressCard Slot Useful Again

Aug 2, 2010

USB 3.0 may not be the mainstream way to transfer data right now, but it certainly will be. Just the way progression works, right? And if you're someone that has a notebook with that ExpressCard slot that's completely ignored, then it looks like Transcent has the perfect piece of tech for you. Especially if you're a fan of transferring data at high speeds.

These two ports on this USB 3.0 ExpressCard Adapter work just as you'd think they would: fully supporting SuperSpeed USB 3.0, which will see connection speeds up to 5Gb/s. But, just in case you don't have the USB 3.0 cable you need, the adapter will also work with USB 2.0 and USB 1.1, so no worries about that. By allowing for that backwards compatibility, the ExpressCard Adapter will allow for a full range of connectivity through USB devices, which means you're not limited in any way.

Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a price or release date mentioned anywhere at the time of this writing, but we'll stay on top of it. As for the warranty, it'll come with a 2-year version, and it will work just fine on your Windows 7-based PC. No word on a Mac, though.
