Any good USB hubs out there??

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys,

 

Not sure if this is the place to ask but any good USB hubs I can get on Amazon?

USB 3.0 with at least 4 slots. Capable of plugging in external HDDs.

 

I skimmed through a few on Amazon and quite a few of the reviews states that they could not get external HDDs to work on the hub.

Planning to stick it under the table for a clean look, don't want to leave it on the desk or PC so flat hubs are appreciated thanks!

You need a powered USB hub to power HDDs. Even then, only 2.5" HDDs will run on USB 3.0. Keep in mind that all the ports on the hub will share the same up to 5.0 Gbps bandwidth of the port the hub will connect to.

As long as anyone is oppressed, no one will be safe and free.

One has to be proactive, not reactive, to ensure the safety of one's data so backup your data! And RAID is NOT a backup!

Mhm... I guess it makes sense that it would need a power source...

Maybe I'll just use the hub for a quick access point for USBs and maybe some bluetooth peripherals.
