    That is what I was think about the USB3. Would USB3 be this much faster than USB 1 or 2? That is quite a difference.

    Thanks, Yeah these are SFF Small Form Factor units that do this. I have Lenovo Thinkcentres that also do it. My Dell OptiPlex 960 full size tower does not do it. Wonder why the SFF's do it.
