USB Hub - Need power adequate for 4 USB 2.0 hard drives
Posted on 2007-11-14
Looking for a powered USB hub capable of running 4 external USB 2.0 hard drives simultaneously (500mA per port). I have been disappointed with the run of the mill powered USB 2 hubs - (Linksys, Netgear) - when I attempt to plug more than one drive in, I get an error stating the the USB hub has experienced a power overload. Both of these hubs are advertised as providing 500mA PER PORT. If that were tru then if one of theses external drives works, then each of the others should as well (not additive as each port should have adequate standalone power).
Any info is appreciated.
