- Uncompromised performance for industry standard USB 3.0/ 2.0 devices
- Performance Companion for high-speed USB 3.0 Storage
Unleashing the Next -Level of USB 3.0 Performance!
UAS (USB Attached SCSI) is a computer protocol that is used to transfer data to and from USB storage devices such as hard drives, solid state drives (SSDs) and thumb/flash drives. UAS is dependent on the USB protocol, and utilizes the standard SCSI command set.
UAS offers maximized bandwidth utilization, and can handle multiple data transfer requests simultaneously, unlike the slower queue system of BOT (Bulk Only Transport), which only provides single-task commands ? each task must complete before the next begins. As a result, USB 3.0 connections working in UASP mode result in higher transfer speeds and lower CPU utilization. UAS clears data queues faster, which results in smoother-operating PC's.
New Compatibility Breakthrough! Supports all Industry Standard USB2/USB3 Devices
The RocketU 1144C is an all-in-one, USB 3.0 connectivity solution for any PCIe capable desktop and workstation PC's.
In addition to high-performance storage devices, the RocketU 1144C's 3rd generation USB 3.0 architecture supports industry standard USB 2.0 and 3.0 peripherals, such as device hubs, card readers and interface devices.
Performance Potential of USB Storage
Unlike conventional USB cards that are best used as simple device hubs, RocketU HBA's are uniquely suited for high-speed USB 3.0 storage configurations. With dedicated 5Gb/s per-port performance, also ideal for a variety of external storage configurations including multi-drive bays, RAID enclosures, and external SSD's.
Upgrade any PC with 20Gb/s of USB 3.0 Bandwidth!
The RocketU 1144C is optimized for today's fastest USB 3.0 hard drives and SSD's, and is well suited for a wide-range of applications including portable/removable storage, storage expansion, personal media libraries, and backup solutions. Designed with ease of installation and maximum compatibility in mind, RocketU 1144C HBA's can be used with any free PCIe 2.0/1.0 x4, x8 or x16 slot. The RocketU 1144C is fully compliant with the xHCI specification, and is natively supported by Windows 8 and Linux distributions that utilize kernel v2.6.31.

New External Pioneer Blu-ray Disc Burners for PC & Mac Available now at Videoguys.com
Available to order at Videoguys.com or Call us at 800-323-2325
The Videoguys technicians just returned from the 2014 CES show in Vegas and had a great meeting with the folks at Pioneer up at their suite. Over the past year the Pioneer product line-up has grown and evolved. Now, in addition to internal Blu-ray drives, Pioneer also offers a complete line-up of external drives with different features and form factors.
While some of these drives ship with Cyberlink software, we don't recommend it for anything more than basic burning. If you are looking for a stand-alone Blu-ray Disc burning and authoring tool, we recommend Roxio Creator NXT (for Windows) and Roxio Toast (for Mac).
If you are looking for Blu-ray Disc authoring software to make movies that you can play on any Blu-ray Disc player; and a low cost, easy to use but powerful PC based video editing solution; we recommend Sony Vegas Movie Studio Platinum.
But, if your goal is to author professional quality, high-definition Blu-ray Disc movies, we recommend using the software integrated or bundled with our professional video editing products like:
- Adobe Creative Cloud for Teams or Adobe Premiere Pro with Encore
- Avid Media Composer with Avid DVD
- Apple FCP with Compressor
- Sony Vegas Pro with DVD Architect
- Grass Valley Edius Pro
Introducing the Next Generation Pioneer External Blu-ray Disc Burners
I am excited to introduce Pioneer?s new line-up of external burners. I've become a big fan of external Blu-ray burners. Like most of us today, I have many computers at my disposal: home & office, PCs & Macs, desktops & laptops; so the external options give me the flexibility to move the burner to the machine where I need it. This saves me a lot of money since I do not need a burner for every computer. It also allows me to invest in the best optical drive that I can even use on machines like my Mac Book Air which doesn't have a built-in drive at all. The Pioneer drives all support Blu-ray, DVDs & CDs so I can use it as the only optical drive with every machine I own and/or use.
