Do you have a PC without USB?

Networking hardware vendor D-link has released two new products for users keen to exploit the benefits of the Universal Serial Bus, also known as USB.

For older PCs that do not incorporate a USB port, D-link has released the DU-A2 ($49 RRP). The DU-A2 is a two-port USB PCI controller, providing two type A downstream ports for connecting peripherals to PCs running Windows 95 or Windows 98.

For users wanting to expand the number of USB ports they currently have, D-link has launched the DU-H4 four-port USB hub that connects up to four USB peripherals to a PC or iMac.

The DU-H4 ($85.00 RRP) provides four type A downstream ports for connecting peripherals and other USB hubs, whilst a single type B upstream port offers users the ability to connect a host computer to another USB hub.

Both devices are Plug and Play and support low speed 1.5Mbps devices and high speed 12Mbps devices, says D-link.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
