Apart from the three USB 3.0 front-panel models that were unveiled last week, Sharkoon announced the market launch of a cute little USB 3.0 Internal Adapter accessory that converts a standard 2-port USB 3.0 front-panel header to two type-A USB 3.0 ports. The accessory is as simple as a tiny PCB with a front-panel header socket on one end, a 2-port type-A USB 3.0 port cluster on the other, and some insulation. This accessory could be useful if you want to boot off or maintain a "secret" USB 3.0 flash drive or portable HDD/SSD, and ensure it doesn't stick out of your PC case. The Sharkoon Internal USB 3.0 Adapter is priced at €5.99.
