Posted in USB by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2010

The Win-star 10-port USB hub manages to look a bit futuristic and the circular shape provides 10 downstream ports and 1 upstream port. It supports the USB 2.0 interface for a data transfer rate of up to 480Mbps. Interestingly, the Win-star 10-port USB hub is also backward compatible with the USB 1.1 interface.

The Win-star 10-port USB hub is compatible with Microsoft Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS X or later. Each purchase comes with a USB 2.0 cable and a 5V/2A power adapter. We just like the unusual design.

ASUS outs USB 2.0 Blu-ray driveASUS has taken a fairly basic USB Blu-ray drive and given it a high-gloss makeover. The SBC-04B1S-U isn’t gonna wow you with 4.8x maximum Blu-ray disc reading, 8x DVD burning, a USB 2.0 connection, and Windows compatibility.

The bright blue ‘X’ on the unit flashes and has a dedicated app to control brightness. My main concern with this X is that it might attract government agents looking to give Fox Mulder some deepthroat-like info.
