USB hub- suggestions please


[link to this post]
 
I’m looking for an external USB hub that’s suitable for both USB 2 and 3 devices. There’s nothing on e-buyer that I can see. Any suggestions? (4-port would be fine).

Dabs list a couple of USB 3.0 hubs - here and here. Both hubs are powered.

You may be able to get them cheaper elsewhere. Dabs is a useful starting point, however.

Note that only the StarTech hub claims backward compatibility with USB 1.x.

No, I can't find it anywhere else tbh, and it's not really a dabs thing, just how can they justify that price for the simple fact it's a usb 3 hub. You can almost buy a usb 3 motherboard for that!

Have you checked eBay? I can see quite a few listings below £20. Also, you might want to consider a 4-port PCI-E adapter?
