Looking for a reliable brand/model.
I've never in my life had a reliable USB hub. The main problem is that devices connected through the hub seems to disturb each other. If more than one is connected this way they often start to malfunction. Or all of a sudden the computer doesn't recognize one of them. Currently I have problems with all small devices that can be charged through USB. Mp3 player, small speaker, ebook reader... It's been this way with every hub I've ever owned, used with different computers. Some of them have worked fine to start with though, for a very limited time.
Is this a generic problem with hubs or do I just make poor choices? Does it help to pay more?
