I’ve never had much luck with USB hubs, especially the cheap ones. It doesn’t take them long to fry so I found that it’s best to plug in/out ports or spend more on a decent hub. This hub is made to look like a power-strip, complete with switches.
It’s a given that we need USB hubs. There aren’t enough USB ports on your computer to fit all of your gadgets and gizmos. USB hubs come in all shapes, sizes and colors, but ultimately people want something that works well and looks good. It’s that simple. The thing is that not all USB hubs are well designed or look great. That’s why we’ve decided to put together our faves in this post. Read on to find out more.
Well, we’ve just made a little discovery. There are more devices in disguise available out there for all of you Transformers nuts.

I can remember fondly the Transformers that could be made into 3 different shapes or the ones that assembled to make a giant robot.
With your camera, your phone, your USB drives, your iPod and more gadgets needing to be connected to your computer or laptop, you’ll need a lot of USB ports to satisfy your gizmos. Sure, you can always unplug them, but sometimes, it’s annoying to do so, especially if you have to disconnect and reconnect peripherals that you know you’ll be using a short time later.
