Welcome to Reviews OnLine: Keyspan’s new Hi-Speed USB 2.0 CardBus
Keyspan’s new Hi-Speed USB 2.0 CardBus
by Rick Smith (December 4, 2001)


The USB (Universal Serial Bus) standard is marching forward to USB 2.0. If your laptop is only operating at USB 1.1, Keyspan's new Hi-Speed USB 2.0 CardBus upgrade card easily adds this new capability to your laptop. Without having to buy a new laptop, you will be able to connect new USB 2.0 (and older USB 1.1) devices, via your laptop's CardBus slot.

USB 2.0 is a big performance upgrade, because it operates at up to 480 Mbps -- forty times faster than USB 1.1. New peripheral devices such as hard drives, CD-RW drives, scanners, video cameras and printers are being released that support USB 2.0.

The Keyspan Hi-Speed USB 2.0 CardBus Card ships with a small power adapter. Using this power adapter is optional, but it guarantees a full 500 mA of power to each port being used, as per the USB specification.

This laptop card is now shipping and has an MSRP of $99.
