Alternative to USB hub

Here is an internal alternative to a USB hub since some of them are not up to snuff and cause problems.

Interesting idea.  BUT, it's still a hub.  The connectors are different looking, but still a hub.

Now, it is useful if this is what you need, but if you just need a hub...get a hub.   :dizzy:


Ok, ok, ok.  It does have the benefit that it's wired to accept an internal USB connector.  That's pretty cool.   8)

Exactly what I was thinking. Plus it doesn't have an external power supply. However, it is neat for more internal connections I suppose...
