Buffalo launches USB 3.0 PCI-Express Interface Board with 4 Ports

 Buffalo Technology, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of wired and wireless networking and direct attached storage solutions, today announced the launch of its high performance PCI-Express interface board with 4 USB 3.0 ports. It’s high-performance interface allowing users to upgrade their PC so as to connect to next generation of external HDDs and flash drives that support USB 3.0 interface.

 It offers a great solution to upgrade your PC for use with the Super Speed High Performance USB 3.0 Devices. The USB 3.0 interface increases the data transfer rates to more than ten times that of USB 2.0. This speeds up backup and transfer of photos, music, videos, documents, and other important data. The faster the transfer rate the better the performance. Also, it improves the performance of other peripheral devices like scanners and media players, and other peripheral devices supporting USB 3.0.

 Each port enables a connection to one of USB 3.0 device, allowing up to a total of four devices such as external HDDs and SSDs, USB flash memory, and other USB devices to be connected simultaneously. This in turn reduces the need to purchase hubs for additional ports and reduces the hassle of constantly disconnecting and reconnecting various devices' USB cables. These 4 ports are also backward compatible which allows connection with the legacy USB 2.0 devices also.

 “This super speed interface is designed to create a massive jump in performance, copying heavy files in just seconds. We are truly happy and excited to launch this amazing and groundbreaking technology in the Indian market”, said Susumu Kobayashi, Country Head, Buffalo India
