The original USB standard was introduced in the 1990s so that it would be easier to connect a computer to other devices, including printers, cameras, keyboards, and disk drives. Since then, USB has replaced many legacy connectors, such as serial and parallel ports, but the evolution is far from complete.

Fast forward to 2015 and the new generation of USB 3.1 opens up new possibilities for better charging, connectivity, video and data transfer, all through one cable at a blistering speed of 10 Gbps!

StarTech.com will be launching a full range of USB 3.1 cables to support the newest devices planned for 2015. This includes a new connector, Type-C, that is reversible. This saves you the headache of trying to plug it in the wrong way. Its small size but durable design makes it suitable for use with devices of all sizes, whether laptops or smartphones.
