Somebody knows what brand is this hub? cant find it in any store.
It's ugly. Just sayin.
Where is this picture from? It looks like quite a good setup.
What USB hub do you guys recommend?
It looks more like a USB/FW extender than a hub.
You can probably pick it up at Frys.
I like the Macally TriHub. You can get it in 4 or 7 port setups, and I like the looks of it.
I would love a USB hub which doesn't require electricity.
Finding an unpowered hub isn't a problem. A lot of them that have AC adapters can even be used unpowered. The problem is the devices. Some of them (often external HDs) require more power than the USB port will provide.
I would probably contact griffin and ask them (since that is where the picture is from). It looks like it just extends the ports of the older macbook pro with audio/firewire/usb
looks like it's made to go in the round holes some office desks have for routing cables.
Sadly, no longer available. But there were some neat alternatives...
http://www.lacie.com/us/products/product.htm?pid=11006 is USB only, but has that cool white Mac look.
Also USB only.
This one has everything but doesn't look very cool.
the best usb hub for mac is the apple wired keyboard it even powers my wacom tablet
Ha! You just saved me a trip to the store. I have been having problems with the print server in my Brother Laser printer so I was just going to plug the USB into my airport extreme, but I've already got a HD plugged in there for Time Machine backups. I was getting ready to head out to pick up a USB hub when I saw your post. I have an old Apple KB that suffered a spill and now half the keys don't work. I figured I'd try to see if it would work as a USB hub with the extreme, and it works great. Not the prettiest or smallest hub, but it will hold until I can get one cheap.
haha yup awesome emergency hub when you forget that it has usb ports
Thanks man! You found it.
Well thats a bummer, at least i know name of it, maybe i'd be lucky to find it on ebay. Thanks once again!
I'm considering to pick up the Lacie hub, im not sure if its good one (it looks like it falls everytime my desk moves), i also like the targus USB hub!
