Everybody with a computer has peripherals with USB 2.0 or FireWire 400 (1394a) connectors-keyboards, mice, printers, scanners, digital cameras, iPod mobile digital devices, external hard drives and DV camcorders to name a few-but computers never seem to have enough ports to connect them all. Plug and unplug peripherals all the time? Talk about inconvenient. Hubs-who needs them? Install Sonnet's Tango PCIe card into your computer to instantly add the USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 ports you need.
Sonnet's Tango PCIe adds three external FireWire 400 ports and three external USB 2.0 ports to your computer. This adapter card installs easily into one of your computer's PCI Express (PCIe) slots, features hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection support with automatic device configuration and works with all industry-standard FireWire 400 and USB 2.0 peripherals.
Tango PCIe is also capable of supporting bus-powered peripherals (devices that can work without a separate power supply, including some scanners and small external drives), so some devices can be plugged in and operate without an extra connection to a power supply.
