Enjoy desktop convenience or easy portability
This hub is perfect for a permanent setup with a desktop computer, as its durable metal case resists the wear and tear of daily use. In addition, it is possible to mount it to the surface of, for example, a desk or a wall, using the included mounting bracket.
The compact size and durability also make the concentrator perfectly portable. When the user commutes or travels from home to office and vice versa, the durable design resists any damage caused in these situations.
Connect devices quickly and easily
The hub ports are in the upright position, which is ideal for IT professionals or anyone who requires frequent plugging and unplugging of their USB devices. The hub offers ample space for plugging in the connectors, without having to worry about oversized terminals taking up too much space and reducing the number of ports available.
Additional USB 3.0 ports allow you to increase your productivity and connect more devices to your computer, or simply avoid the hassle of swapping devices for the limited number of ports on your laptop. The hub makes it easy to access your USB ports and can extend the range of your devices by acting as a repeater.
Use with high-performance devices as well as previous generation
The ST7300U3M hub is compatible with the latest USB 3.0 products, including UASP-equipped storage devices. With transfer speeds of up to 5Gb per second using SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology, this high-performance hub is the perfect accessory for your MacBook® or UltraBook ™ desktop or laptop computer.
You can also use the hub with older generation computers and peripherals, as it includes support for USB 2.0 and 1.x devices, without requiring the installation of additional drivers or software.
