USB v3 Hub (revised . . 7 Nov)

usbv3_hub

The other day, without much forethought, I was about to purchase a “generic” 4 port usb hub because I’m using more and more storage devices such as my SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD 120GB . . . that I purchased in March.

Furthermore . . . .  last week, I installed “Solus OS” on the SanDisk, but I realized if I want to take full advantage of the rated speed (415 MB/s . . . yes, 415 MB/s), . . . it needed a usbv3 port! . . .  (which are in short supply  on my Acer laptop).  In fact, I have only 1 such port on that machine.

So,  I opted to get the above Sabrent v3 hub.  I’m a bit surprised that I hadn’t thought of this before.

Now, I’m absolutely looking forward to demo’ing both devices at one of our next meetings.   A full linux OS on a very small SSD with usbv3 is like having 2 PC’s.  The speed and functionality are  amazing.
