Have run out of USB space/ SOCKETS

  nowipowi 11:40 13 Sep 2008


I have just brought a new computer mouse, only to discover it had to be plugged into yet another USB port.

What I'm having to do at the moment is keep swapping my printer, scanner, G drive etc.,and I was just wondering if there is another way of rectifying this prooblem; i.e. some device which accepts all these things.

like one of these.

ideally it should be self powered.[with its own power supply]
or better yet if a desk top machine

The ideal set up is to have the printer / scanner/ broadband modem [if USB] permanently on the main connections and all else through the hub. you can also get a second hub to plug to the first

If you have a spare PCI slot then a USB PCI card is the best way to go as this is then powered from the Mobo click here
