Today's notebook computers are small and powerful, but when it comes to connecting accessories, they're limited. They have at least one or two USB ports and some have a FireWire port, but most don't have enough places to plug in all your peripherals. Everybody's got gadgets with USB or FireWire connectors - iPod mobile digital devices, DV camcorders, digital cameras, external drives, printers, keyboards, mice, scanners, to name a few - wouldn't it be nice to plug in more than one at a time?
Pop Sonnet's FireWire/USB ExpressCard/34 into your computer's ExpressCard slot to instantly add the USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 ports you need! Sonnet's FireWire/USB ExpressCard/34 features one USB 2.0 and two FireWire 400 ports, each port offering full-bandwidth data throughput, so there is no performance penalty when you add ports as you add devices.
This card works in ExpressCard/34 and ExpressCard/54 slots and features hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection with automatic device configuration.
