OK, here’s something that is not seen all that often anymore... a USB hub. This four-port USB 2.0 hub from Apacer is a solid device with really good performance, but the question does arise; are USB hubs still necessary?
The compact, portable nature of this hub makes it obvious that it is meant for use with notebooks, which often don’t offer enough USB ports. So, in that case, the answer is yes. Let’s be honest - if you’ve used all your desktop PC USB ports you either have too many USB devices, or you need a motherboard upgrade.
The unit is rather stylish in looks and is solidly built, so carrying it around shouldn’t provide too many problems.
It’s pretty small, too, which helps, and comes with a port for an external power supply, if needed. It also comes with a USB cable that fold-up into the device... this particular cable once again points to notebook use, because it is very short indeed (the only real downside of this capable little device.)
So, if you’re after a way to maximize the USB ports on your notebook, this brilliantly priced Apacer solution should provide exactly what you need.
A rather useful device for those hampered by too few USB ports.
