usb hub that actually works and doesn't break --- is there one?
Posted on 2009-02-15
Hello, Something must be going on with usb hubs or I must be the unluckiest usb hub owner in the world. Every usb hub I own gives me headaches. I have two identical GE 8-port 2.0 hubs that constantly go funny on me. Some devices quit or when I transferring large files (4 gigs) between external drives, their connection constantly goes in and out. Windows XP starts to making beeping sounds when a usb device is connected and disconnected, like it is an endless song.
Is this normal? I mean usb 2 connections are supposed to be solid, not working on occassion, right?
I know it's the hubs, not the computer. Anything connected directly into the computer, works fine.
Can someone please recommend a solid usb 2.0 8-port or larger hub that is made to work well and last?
