    Anyone have any USB Hubs to suggest for me to buy. I want one with a power supply and at least 4 USB ports.

    Thanks

    We had a Belkin one at work...

    'Had' being the operative word.

    It was rubbish and stopped working after about 3 months... just a word to the wise.

    i have a targus one that works really well. it's obviously not as fast as directly plugging it into the computer but i transferred stuff to my ipod pretty quickly. like 20-30 bucks, very compact, i think it was designed for laptops, just 4 ports arranged in a 2x2 square. had a psu but i lost it.

    Duff-Mans says...I have the Keyspan one that fits your description (powered, 4 ports) and it has never caused me any grief...even works well with the midi interface that is not recommended for use with usb hubs....oh yeah!

    Have a Belkin powered 4-port USB 1.1 hub. It's been flawless for the past 5 years. Actually.
