Slight surprise: I thought earlier info said that it has USB3, not USB2, ports?

A little less analogue, and a lot more crap.

For another £25 you could get a UHD in the form of the SF8008 mini.

The inference was that it would be the same as an SX88 4K but without the 4K. No USB 3 is a poor decision:N

Probably because USB2 can handle the recording/replay streams for 1080 video - and it was slightly cheaper to implement. A disappointment nevertheless.
