The last USB hub I had was a externally powered D-Link 7 port. However when I try to plug in a bus powered harddrive in there, the harddrive wont work. Now I'm in need of another USB hub for my macbook pro. It can be 4 or 7 port. Preferably good looking one to match, somewhat, with the MBP. Big plus if it has some other cool features. I liked the Belkin usb/firewire hub for mac mini. Does someone have it and has any opinion about the compatibility of that? Since that's bus powered only, does that become a problem sometimes? Is there any other suggestion? Thanks!
