Kanex DualRole USB 3.0 and Gigabit Ethernet hub

In the quest to make the thinnest, most lightweight notebooks, many manufacturers (like Apple) have removed many components that are quite useful or even essential if the notebook is being used on the road, or even as a desktop replacement. One of the casualties in this war on heavy notebooks has been USB ports. As the computers become thinner, they seem to be losing more and more USB ports. Kanex recently released the DualRole USB 3.0 three-port hub, which is designed to remedy this problem, and MacNN has three to give away to our readers.

When using a notebook computer at home or on the road, it is often necessary to have more USB ports than the limited supply offered on devices like the MacBook Pro. The Kanex DualRole provides three additional high speed USB 3.0 ports for instantly connecting peripherals, and includes a Gigabit Ethernet port. It is also great for Windows-based systems like the Microsoft Surface Pro, which only has one USB port. For extra power, Kanex makes a universal power adapter that can be used to give the DualRole some extra juice.



The Kanex DualRole comes in white, and retails for $59 at KanexLive.com. It is compatible with Windows XP and higher, as well as Linux kernel 2.6.9 (and up) or Mac OS 10.4 and later.



Winners will receive one Kanex DualRole USB hub as well as a 5V power adapter. To enter, click here, agree to our terms and conditions, and answer one skill-testing question. Mailing list signup is required to be selected; if you have already signed up for a mailing list, please place a check in the box next to the list you have signed up for. The giveaway is open to residents of US and Canada only, and closes on November 11, 2013.
