Sonnet FireWire USB 2 ExpressCard/34 (2 FireWire + 1 USB Ports), Bus Interface, Plug and Play, Fast Interface
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.
