Available in 3-, 6-, and 10-foot lengths (USB-203FB, USB-206FB, and USB-210FB), the new USB-200FB USB cables from Hosa Technology feature a pivoting Type A connector—the end that typically connects to a computer—that can be set to either straight or right angle positions. This enables one to use the cable in its straight orientation when space permits and in a right angle position in cramped quarters. In its right angle position, the computer would typically be placed on an elevated laptop stand (so the cable can hang off the side) or at the edge of the work surface. For DJs, whose production rig commonly consists of a laptop computer, mixer, turntables, and a digital controller, the new USB-200FB USB cables can be a valuable means of making connections in an environment where space is frequently limited.

To ensure interoperability with a wide range of USB peripherals, the new Hosa USB-200FB USB cables are fully compliant with the USB 2.0 serial bus interface standard and are backward compatible with the USB 1.1 standard. Equally notable, these cables support burst data transfer rates up to 480 Mbps. These cables are an excellent choice for connecting an audio interface, USB microphone or instrument, or most computer peripherals to a PC.

The new Hosa Technology USB-200FB USB Series cables are expected to become available in January 2013. MSRP pricing is as follows:

USB-203FB:     $8.95
USB-206FB:        $10.95
USB-210FB:        $11.95
