USB 3.0 may not be the hotness that it was a year or so ago, but it's still a protocol that's not adopted everywhere, and in turn, more and more accessory companies are jumping on the bandwagon -- even today. IOGEAR has just announced a new SuperSpeed family of products, including the SuperSpeed USB 3.0 4-Port Hub (GUH374) and USB 3.0 SD/Micro SD Card Reader/Writer (GFR304SD). Moving data at a clip of 5Gbps, the new USB 3.0 SuperSpeed Card Reader / Writers and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 4-Port Hub improve connectivity and efficiency between computers and the peripherals that create, store and transfer digital content.  The compact USB 3.0 Hub is plug-n-play for a no hassle installation and hot swappable...

Here's an interesting concept: a USB hubsand WLAN router, together. That's what IOGEAR has just introduced a new 4-port USB Sharing Station (GUWIP204), detailed as a computer accessory that allows wireless sharing of up to four USB peripherals in a home or office. By simply connecting devices to the sharing station and configuring it to a Wi-Fi network, devices can be shared by multiple users without the 16-foot USB distance limitation. Basically, this allows users to share four ports over a wireless connection. USB devices such as external hard drives, flash drives, webcams, memory card readers, speakers and multi-function printers can be shared by multiple computer users with home or office... Read more...
Does the world really have machines that are still actively being used...without Wi-Fi? It may seem hard to believe if you're living in a society that's eternally connected, but the niche still exists in some places. To solve that problem, and provide connectivity to machines that were born without, IOGEAR has unveiled their universal Wi-Fi N Adapter. That new device connects A/V devices to a home network via a wireless router -- things like game consoles, Blu-ray players, etc. You simply take a device with an Ethernet port, plug it up to this dongle, and enjoy the spoils of Wi-Fi. Think of it as a wireless addition to any device that only supports wired Ethernet connections from the factory.... Read more...
USB really is universal. The port has been used for an untold number of things in the computing universe, and more recently, accessory makers have figure out how to transmit video signals through the same cable that's more commonly used to connect printers and scanners. IOGEAR is one of those companies, recently introducing a USB-to-HD adapter that basically acts as an external video card in order to drive yet another monitor. This is particularly useful when connected to notebooks; it's pretty easy to pop a new graphics card into a tower, but if your notebook doesn't have a video output, you're basically out of luck without one of these. The GUC2025H utilizes DisplayLink technology in order... Read more...
A keyboard is a keyboard, right? Not at all. We tend to favor mechanical keyboards for gaming, backlit keyboards on our notebooks, and keyboards with integrated trackpads for use with our HTPC setups. IOGEAR has a long history of providing keyboards for that last application, and they're keeping the trend alive in the new year. The company has just launched a new keyboard, the Multi-Link Bluetooth Keyboard with Touchpad (GKM611B) for wireless management of up to six Bluetooth enabled devices. Yep, a Bluetooth keyboard, optimized for HTPC use. The idea here is that the keyboard can connect to up to six devices, so you could control your HTPC at one moment, then take it into the den and control... Read more...
It's something that we take for granted, but without it, there's no computing to speak of. It's the grand ole keyboard, and if you need a new one, IOGEAR has two new ones to choose from. The company has introduced today two new 2.4GHz wireless keyboards, complete with an optical trackball, scroll wheel and convenient hotkeys. The first is the GKM571R palm-sized keyboard with a LED backlight, while the GKM581R is the larger of the two, and it's designed for on-lap usage, possible at a couch with your HTPC. Both of 'em work from up to 33 feet away, and the company's marketing these towards media PC users or those who have PCs in unusual situations away from the desk. The optical trackball that's...

If you're in the need for more hard drive space, but don't want to add another drive to your computer, you can always opt for an external hard drive. Network storage drives are a conveniant thing to have, especially if you've got a home network going. "When looking for additional storage for your PC there are 2 choices; internal or external. When going the external route most people opt for USB or Firewire drives. They are fairly inexpensive and very easy to setup. How about storage that you can access from any PC in your house and even from anywhere via the internet? Yes I'm talking about network storage. Today I am taking a look... Read more...
