When I first saw this product I was like wow, why didn’t anyone else come up with something like this! It is so simple, yet for people like me so necessary. So some ideas of what this might be used for? Let’s start with the 6 internal USB ports you get. Many companies make front panel card readers, USB boards, and even fan controllers that use internal USB connectors. If you only have 1 or 2 internal USB connectors on your motherboard you could run into some trouble when connecting these new devices if you do not have something like the IU01 USB Expansion System. Now for the 2 external USB connectors these enable you to use things like USB Bluetooth receivers, USB wireless adapters, and in my case the 2 USB receivers for my mouse and keyboard. This way these are always connected and you don’t have to worry about losing them either.
Right now NZXT is selling the IU01 USB Expansion System for $19.99, which for 8 extra USB ports is not a bad deal at all. Overall ThinkComputers gives the NZXT IU01 USB Expansion System a perfect 10 out of 10 score. It does exactly what it is made to do without any issues.
- Easy to install
- Adds 8 extra USB ports
