Universal BUSlink UII-250 hard drive specifications

250GB External Hard Drive - USB 2.0 / 1.1

Avoid the bottleneck of slow drives! BUSlink offers the ideal solution for high speed-intensive applications such as editing videos, playing games, or backing up your system's internal hard drive. Up to 40 times faster than USB 1.1, the BUSlink UII series of external storage features 7, 200RPM hard drive, up to 56% faster than 5400RPM drive versions. The BUSlink's USB 2.0 is a dramatic performance increase over the standard USB 1.1. Whereas USB 1.1 is only 12Mbits/s, the new USB 2.0 Hi-Speed specification used by the BUSlink USB 2.0 runs at up to 480Mbits/s. USB, standing for "Universal Serial Bus", allows you to attach up to 128 devices simultaneously with automatic device detection and installation. Since USB 2.0 Hi-Speed is an evolution of the existing USB 1.1 specification, it is fully backward compatible with current USB systems and peripherals. Even with the dramatically increased speeds, it works with existing cables and connectors. In other words, consumers will have the benefit of using devices they already have, so their investments are protected.
