    Certainly the one which comes on the SB-1000/SB-2000 is. It is
    a USB 1.3 (or is that 1.2?), not a 2.0. To get a 2.0 speed, you need a
    card which comes with the Sun Blade [12]500, not the Sun Blade [12]000.
    (It can be put in a SB-2000, as I have one in mine.) It also offers
    some faster FireWire ports, which are probably better than the USB even
    if you have USB 2.0.)

    Good luck,
    DoN.
