ShowMeCables Announces Release of USB 3.0 Cables

ShowMeCables, a St. Louis-based provider of voice, video, and data solutions, today announced the sales release of cables based on the new, faster USB 3.0 standard.

Based on the ubiquitous USB plug-and-play cabling standard, the 3.0 revision promises transfer speeds of up to 4.8 GB/second (compared to USB 2.0’s 480 MB/second) when used with compatible devices. Despite its increased speed and new nomenclature, however, the 3.0 standard is backwards compatible with the earlier USB 2.0 and 1.1; 3.0 cables are thus able to effectively function as a 2.0/1.1 cable when needed.

As part of the new offering, ShowMeCables now stocks a wide array of USB 3.0 cables, including standard-size A/A and A/B cables as well as standard-to-micro A/A and A/B cables. In addition to cables based on the new 3.0 standard, ShowMeCables also carries a plethora of the more-widely-compatible USB 2.0 and 1.1 cables—including those of various types and configurations—in addition to its broad selection of computer cables in general.

Apart from this computer-oriented adaptor special, ShowMeCables also offers other regular—like the weekly Humpday Special—and non-regular specials. For the latest discounts and closeouts, head to the ShowMeCables Specials page.
