Exactly the same but with USB 2.0 port
"USB 2.0 has proven to be a widely adopted and successful connectivity standard for both Mac and PC, and it's increased bandwidth over USB 1.1 is well suited for pro audio applications," said Jim Cooper, Director of Marketing for MOTU. "With the addition of a USB 2.0 model, the 828mkII line now delivers even broader plug-and-play compatibility with latest-generation personal computers."
The 828mkII-USB provides a high-speed "ultra-fast" (480 Mbit) USB 2.0 connection to any USB 2.0-equipped Mac or PC. Users can freely choose between purchasing the 828mkII FireWire model or the USB 2.0 model, depending their computer and other FireWire or USB devices they plan to connect to it. Most recent computers (built within the last several years) support the high-speed USB 2.0 standard.
Both models (828mkII-FireWire and 828mkII-USB2) are now shipping and share the same US list price of $795.
