USB Specification 1.1

  • I am planning to purchase a USB device for my
    "Dimension XPS T500".

    In documentation,
    the device required to be connected to "USB Specification 1.1 Compatible" USB.

    I want to know USBs on my machine is whether USB Specification 1.1 or not.

    I used System Configuration card on this website,
    but unable to find the information about USB specification. I also find motherboard type, which is:
    "Intel Corporation SE440BX-3 AA722396-111"
    I went to intel website, but unable to find the information. They had SE440-BX and SE440-BX-2, but no information about SE440-BX-3 was found.

    I currently use following USB devices for my machine:
    Epson Perfection 1200 Photo Scanner
    Wacom Intuos Special Edition 9x12
    They are both working just fine.

    If you have any idea,
    please let me know.

    Thank you.

  • The USB Host Controller built into the Dimension XPS T series is USB 1.0 compliant. The USB 1.1 specification includes the unchanged USB 1.0 Host Controller specification.

  • Well,
    if Host Controller is the same, I guess it should work okay, right?

    If so,
    why did they specify as USB 1.1 is something I don't understand.

    Anyway,
    I am getting a head of myself. Probably something I don't know. As long as the device works, I am okay with that.

    Thank you, Cody!
