USB host redirects here. What is a USB host?. I suggest that is something similar to USB on the go, but applied to any device, mainly HDD media players.--Diamondland (talk) 14:13, 3 December 2010 (UTC)
- Quite simply USB host is a computer that has USB port. I've changed this unfortunate redirect. --Kubanczyk (talk) 18:23, 18 December 2010 (UTC)
Besides the mention of host adapters being used for connecting fiber channel, SCSI and many others, a mention of the components that the adapter is composed of and other functions that host adapters perform would be a good addition to this article — Preceding unsigned comment added by Akshayfarcry (talk • contribs) 05:59, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
When I think of HBAs, I immmediately think of Storage Area Networks or SANs. This is especially true for Fibre channel, which is referenced here as the primary technology to utilize HBAs. Shouldn't the article reference SAN in some way? Rantorr (talk) 22:01, 1 April 2012 (UTC)
Hello! In my opinion, the article should be renamed to Host bus adapter as that's by far a more common name for the described technology. Any objections, please? — Dsimic (talk | contribs) 12:42, 28 November 2014 (UTC)
The article mentions the host as the host "computer", but the term "computer" seems unnatural at the level of detail of individual cards and buses. What is really meant by the term "computer"? Does this mean CPU, or does this mean something a little more expansive, such as motherboard? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 04:48, 18 November 2015 (UTC)
