Logitec Solves Ultrabook Problem: Connectivity

Not to be confused with Logitech, Logitec has released two USB hubs into the market that are specifically aimed towards ultrabooks. While there might be other applications, the presence of three USB ports and a network port make it right for ultrabooks.

The two units are called the LAN-GTJU3H3 and the LAN-TXU2H3A. Both weigh only 50 grams and measure just 80 x 60 x 20 mm.

The black version is the LAN-GTJU3H3. The uplink is handled by a USB 3.0 plug and it features three USB 3.0 ports. Users will also find a Gbit Ethernet port. The white version, the LAN-TXU2H3A, is based off of the USB 2.0. It has three USB 2.0 ports and a 10/100 Mbit Ethernet port. Both devices are powered by USB 3.0/2.0 ports.

A Japan launch is scheduled for later this month with no word on US availability yet. The Black LAN-GTJU3H3 will cost 5133¥, and the white LAN-TXU2H3A will cost 2,541¥. This translates to about $53.80 and $26.50, respectively.
