    Hi,

    I have just ordered a new iMac 20" and will need a USB2 hub. I have read horror stories of people buying them and them not working due to power supply issues.

    Can anyone recommend a hub that I know will work well?

    I would like at least 4 ports but the more the better.

    Cheers.

    IF hdds then buy "powered" hub.. if no hdds then use any hub but i like the MacSense brand hubs......

    i too need a hub for my 20" iMac, any suggestions. I don't plan on using a HDD cause i have a FW one, but will need it for my printer, Eye tv 250, ipod cable, memory card reader, and my memory stick thingy...
