Hey guys,

I need a USB hub for the rear of my Buffalo Network Attached Storage (NAS) as I need outputs to both my printer plus an external USB backup device. Using my old USB hub was taking forever with a maximum data transfer speed of only 1.3MB/s to the USB hard drive.

So I'm wondering if you can help me choosing a USB 3.0 powered hub(4 ports+)?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks :)

I recently got this one from Amazon(click here and it works exactly as I needed it to.

It was simple to plug into my iMac, and has handled external drives with ease, along with USB sticks, iPhone/iPad cables (syncing only/not for charging), and other peripherals. It will save swapping connectors repeatedly and potentially damaging them as they can not be left plugged in.

Hope that helps.
