USB 3.0

USB is a serial input/output technology for connecting peripheral devices to a computer. USB 3.0 is a recent implementation of this standard that provides high bandwidth for data transfers.

Transfer rates can attain up to 5Gb/s as opposed to USB 2.0's 480Mb/s. This means that USB 3.0 is theoretically up to ten times faster than its predecessor.

Make certain to use the USB 3.0 cable included with your Backup Plus Hub. It features a Micro-B connector on one end to plug into the Backup Plus Hub and a standard Type A connector for universal connectivity to all PCs and Macs.
