Kanex 4-Port USB 3 Hub + USB 3 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
Kanex 4-Port USB 3 Hub + USB 3 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter With Apple’s new iMacs finally making their way to stores, the computer maker’s entire lineup is now outfitted with USB 3.0—save, of course, for the neglected Mac Pro. Kanex has a couple of new accessories to take advantage of the super fast ports: its 4-Port USB 3 Hub ($59) and USB 3 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter ($49) may not be glamorous, but they’re useful add-ons.The 4-Port USB 3 Hub is just what it sounds like, adding four ports that support transfer rates of up to five gigabits per second. This makes it a smart choice for those with lots of hard drives or other devices to connect. The Ethernet Adapter costs more than Apple’s Thunderbolt version, but at least it leaves that even faster port open. Both come in classic Apple white, although the Ethernet Adapter’s colors skew more towards Performa beige.
