USB connections are everywhere. Chances are if you purchase a device that plugs into a computer, it uses a USB connector. Not all USB peripherals perform the same - many of the latest operate at high-speed and push data up to 40 times faster than standard USB. But you'll need a new connection to get maximum performance - the USB 1.1 connections on your computer won't do. Add the low cost Sonnet Allegro USB 2.0 PCI adapter card to your computer and bring it up to speed with the latest USB technology.
The Allegro USB 2.0 easily installs into an available PCI slot of your computer and features hot-pluggable and hot-swappable device connection with automatic device configuration; no termination or device ID's required. Enjoy faster connection speeds with high-speed transfer rates up to 480 Mb/s - the ideal solution for taking advantage of the latest high-speed USB 2.0 devices.
