Keyspan ships unique PC-to-PC Transfer Solution

Richmond, CA— August 16, 2004— Keyspan, America’s #1 brand of USB
connectivity products*, announces it is now shipping its USB Parallel
Transfer Cable. The cable and software provide a complete solution for
connecting an older PC (with no USB port) to a new PC (with USB port) in
order to transfer files or to synchronize a desktop PC with a laptop PC.

The Keyspan USB Parallel Transfer Cable has an MSRP of $29 and is available
to resellers at Ingram Micro, D&H, and Wynit; and to consumers at,CDW, PC
Connection and other leading computer products resellers.

While many older PCs do not support USB, many new PCs, including more and
more laptops, have dropped serial and parallel ports. Keyspan has developed
a cable that connects the parallel port of the old PC to the USB port of
the newer PC. The cable enables file transfer and synchronization in
instances where USB-USB, Ethernet-Ethernet, or Parallel-Parallel
connectivity is not possible.

The Keyspan USB Parallel Transfer Cable lets users:

– display content of connected PCs with dual file tree
– copy, move, and delete files, groups of files, or whole directories
– use conditional replacement modes for file synchronization
– transfer rates from 4 MB- to 10 MB per minute with data compression
– copy files with 32-bit CRC integrity verification
– supports all 32-bit versions of Windows

“Now PC users have a simple and reliable way to connect their older Win95
desktops with the new generation of PCs,” said Mike Ridenhour, president of
Keyspan. “The Keyspan USB Parallel Transfer Cable is unique solution for
file transfer, synchronization, and PC migration.”
