    was thinkin this myself...why make the 2.0 version look so sleek and sexy then make the 3.0 version look like it came out a happymeal from MCdonalds?


    I think the move was because Mac currently doesnt support USB 3.0 though i could be wrong.

    They shouldn't have even made a USB 2.0 hub at all. Companies should be doing everything they can to kill off USB 2.0 at this point.

    That I agree with you. USB3 is backward compatible with USB2.
    Its a waste of money to do this.
