    I am finding it very inconvenient to use the usb ports on the back. Can you guys let me know what hubs you guys are using which go well with the mini?

    Stuff like that I buy the cheapest off eBay or newegg. Stay away from best buy since it's an accessory and that's how they make their money

    doesn't matter what the brand is, it's all made by little kids chained to their desks in the same factory and rebranded

    I bought the Belkin one.

    Comes with a 5" Link lead and power supply (Not that i need it)

    There are several flavours, some with a few USB ports, some with more, and one with Fire wire.

    I opted for the cheapest as I only wanted a couple of ports at the front for a USB stick, and to make sure that if I knocked my Tea over that it wouldnt flood the internals of my Mini! :p

    I spent a whole £5 at Morgan computers in the UK.

    Anything that plugs into a port and has at least 4 extra ports and a 2' cable.

    I recommend you get a powered usb hub. A lot of devices will fail to work or produce weird behavior on non-powered hubs.
