PC Extreme has posted a Vantec 8-in-1 Card Reader USB 2.0 Hub review
Multimedia components are now the norm, companies everywhere are deliberately designing for a tech savvy world. Whether it comes down to elaborate home entertainment systems, kitchen aids, vehicle navigation systems, computers, and of course the digital imaging enthusiast; technology companies now make gadgets more user friendly while keeping your precious time spent on using their devices to a minimum. Today I will be reviewing one such product that is meant to make your life easier when it comes to several factors one of which is simplicity. Vantec brings forth it’s offering of the external 8-in-1 card reader and USB hub aptly named the Go 2.0. While there are many different card readers out on the market today and most can readily be found in all the major retail stores (Wal-mart, Kmart, Target, Circuit City, Best Buy). Unfortunately, some models are still going to be of the USB 1.1 transfer rate instead of the speedy USB 2.0 variety. For those that do not understand the difference, USB 1.0-1.1 technology is several years old and can only sustain a maximum transfer rate of 1.5Mbps 12Mbps (Megabits not Megabytes) respectively between the peripheral and the computer via the USB cable. USB High Speed 2.0 will allow you to transfer your data at a blazing fast 480Mbps and it was designed to be completely backwards compatible to be used with some of your older existing USB products.
