So now that we are using MBA's what are you folks using for their USB hubs?

I have a cheap hub I picked up in Thailand but I think the T3Hub might be a better way to go.

Anything else anybody would recommend?

It has an external power supply for my external harddrive. Just works great and is quite speedy.

I use to have their 7 port hub but I don't like Dlink as they have proprietory connectors and their power supplies are only US voltage.

The hub I have is similar in shape and footprint to yours only it has 7 ports and is powered by a Nokia phone like charger. It's made by a company called High Edge Technology.

There may be clearance issues with the Dr Bott T3Hub since there isn't much room below where it plugs in so I suspect it might not fit the MacBook Air very well.

I am using this logitech

It's pretty sweet. Small, non-powered, yet it still manages to keep my hard drive running in addition to the USB ethernet adapter and my iPhone.

Plus, the price is smoking after rebate.

Ok so Dr Bott is out of stock on their T3Hub product so does anybody know how it fits the drop down socket on the Air yet then since they are marketing this product as an "air" compatible product.
