IOGEAR releases new 3-port USB 2.0 hub
Just like handbags and shoes are to a fashionista, you can never have enough USB ports for a geek. After all, aren’t tons of devices these days maintain connectivity to your computer via USB? Hence the ever increasing need for more USB ports on a computer, but sometimes design constraints and technical limitations do not help if you want to hook up to a dozen USB devices simultaneously. Good thing USB ports can be daisy chained using USB hubs, and IOGEAR is stepping up to meet this need with their new 3-port USB 2.0 hub.
Unfortunately, many USB hubs seem to be poorly designed, as they lack the necessary space between ports just in case there are devices that come with equally ill designed USB connectors that have absolutely no need to bulge out on one end. This will actually lead you to end up with at least one useless USB port just because it is being blocked by another device’s connector that is plugged in. IOGEAR understands this conundrum, and they have made sure that this won’t happen with the new 3-Port USB 2.0 Mobile Hub with Built-in Mini-USB Cable. Also known by its less glamorous model number, GUH276, this product features an integrated mini-USB cord and three evenly-spaced, upward-facing USB ports that ensures blockage to other outlets won’t happen even when you plug in a large dongle or flash drive to another port.
Ideal for road warriors who want more USB ports (netbooks these days aren’t too kind in this department with a trio of USB 2.0 ports at best) and students who have plenty of devices to charge simultaneously, the 3-Port USB 2.0 Mobile Hub with Built-in Mini-USB Cable sounds (and looks) like the ideal solution. It will retail for $12.95 a pop and is accompanied by a limited three-year warranty.
