Asus O!Play HD2 Will Sport USB 3.0

Posted Thu Mar 4, 2010 at 09:00 AM PST by Mike Attebery

There wasn’t much of an announcement made by Asus about the new O!Play HD2, but details from CeBIT 2010 reveal a nice high speed addition.

The CeBIT show is going on in Germany and there have been some incredibly exciting announcements. The show is centered around computer and IT products, but since those have been increasingly merging into the home theater, there have been a few announcements worth getting excited about.

In a press release Asus name checked the O!Play HD2. We’ve only got a picture and the tiny amount of information they released to go on now, but it looks to be a fairly competitive media streamer.

The most notable thing about the O!Play HD2 though, is that it will be USB 3.0 compatible. Moving to the new USB standard could mean improvements in video quality straight off of a thumb drive.
