    Hey there. I would like to add USB 3.0 to my late 2011 mbp. I never use the FireWire port, so I was wondering if there are any FireWire 800 USB 3.0 Hubs... I tried to google a bit but didnt't find anything useful.

    Also... What are my other options?

    Cheers

    No options other than a really expensive thunderbolt hub.

    If you have a 17" you can fit a USB 3.0 expresscard. I have one in mine and it transfers data at about ~100mb/sec which is still significantly faster than usb 2.0.
