    I don't know the specific model that I own but I have a belkin USB hub which is a few years old but still works. It doesn't really get much use but it is pretty good. It's powered by both usb or power adapter, whatever your needs are it can pretty much adapt to. I'd recommend checking out belkin's USB hubs, it'll probably be a good place to start.

    Just received this one in the mail. It has two convenient popup ports on it for flashdrives etc. and it is powered to keep all devices running.

    I use a iHub - actually have a few unopened ones to sell if anyone is interested.

    That's the one I use too. I like that the Apple lights up.

    I honestly don't have a need for a USB hub with my Mac. The only thing I regularly connect via USB is my iPhone - and that will be going away soon enough. My printer is connected to the WiFi network, so no cables are needed there. The only other cables I use regularly are the AC adapter and my MiniDisplay Port to HDMI adapter to connect an external monitor.

    I use a very small (but powered) Belkin hub I got at Target. Hasn't given me any problems.

    I had the Kensington Dome hub before that and it was problematic so I threw it in the trash.

    Got one from futureshop a while ago. Dynex brand with 4 ports + self powered (AC adapter). I can't remember the price but it was cheap and it works great.
