Hub connects via SuperSpeed USB cable
LaCie has introduced a new USB hub, the Hub4, designed for USB 3.0-equipped computers. The hub integrates four USB 3.0 ports, supporting combined speeds of up to 5Gbps when connected to a single USB 3.0 port on a computer. Users can also connect via USB 2.0, but at the slower 480Mbps data transfer speeds.
The Hub4 is now available directly from LaCie or resellers for $60. The package includes an external power supply and a single USB 3.0 cable. [via Everything USB
