So, I have a cheap 7 USB hub (runs on AC) that I bought in Asia and in general it works quite well but the thing I don't like about it is if I touch the outside of it with my finger often it shorts ie. drives that were connected to it are no longer connected and my EyeTV quits and has to be restarted. ... Q. Is this typical of a cheap vs a branded hub? Would a branded hub work this way?
