The latest Bluetooth 4.0 technology
The major improvement of Bluetooth 4.0 over 3.0 is that devices transfer much more data, using less power. Devices can also connect and begin transferring data in as little as 3 milliseconds. It also effectively transfers data within a greatly expanded range (over 100 meters) and uses the AES-128 CCM authenticated encryption algorithm, ensuring better security.
 
High-Definition Multimedia Interface
The U270DX’s HDMI output not only delivers super-fast 5GB per second data rates, but it also reduces cable clutter, while ensuring the best possible video quality. By taking advantage of HDMI, the U270DX can render game scenes with spectacular clarity and realism, making it a great choice for the next generation of both PC and online games.
 
 
 
Latest & fastest Data Transfer Technology USB 3.0.
USB 3.0 can reach transfer rates of 4.8GB per second, 10 times the bandwidth of the current USB 2.0. A 27GB HD file (about as large as a 4 hour HD video) can be transferred within 70 seconds, so HD video and 3D game playback speeds are even faster. USB 3.0 is also capable of executing read/write data operations, while USB 2.0 can only execute unidirectional document transfers in the same amount of time.
 
 
Built-in 720p HD Webcam
