USB 2.0 works in the same way as the original USB standard, and even looks the same. However it uses a much higher bandwidth, up to 40 times faster than the original standard. USB 2.0 also has the advantage of being backwards compatible with existing USB technology, so all your old devices will still work from a USB 2.0-capable system.
