When USB3.0 was introduced to the market a couple of years back, there were very few products on the market that could make use of the high-speed interface. It was also very expensive to add USB3.0 functionality to your system with expansion cards costing in excess of £50 and peripherals being even more expensive.

Since then, USB3.0 products have come down significantly in price, making it as affordable as ever to add USB3.0 functionality to your system. There are also a vast number of USB3.0 peripherals available on the market now which will let you make use of the massive bandwidth of the USB3.0 interface.

    As you state great way to get USB 3.0 on a board that only has USB 2.0. Just might invest in one of these myself with a new portable drive to keep my Music/Phots on, and at £10.99 at Scan not bad, nice review by the way. 😀
