There always seems to be a demand for USB ports with present day computer users. Long gone are the days of the floppy disk users who have been replaced with thumb drives. The speed of USB ports have also advanced from USB 1.1 to more common USB 2.0, which has just updated to the USB 3.0 at the time of this review. More commonly users could use two or four ports on their PC or laptop, but SATECHI has created a USB hub unlike any other we have ever seen before. SATECHI has designed a 12 port USB hub for the masses. This USB 2.0 hub may only communicate with your PC at the standard 480Mbs, but for the users who are likely needing to access a thumb drive at a time, this slick and slim USB hub will help prevent you from swapping out thumb drive after thumb drive. Also for those of you who need multiple USB ports for such things as USB license keys or possibly low I/O accessories this handy little hub may be what you need.
