    If you have a spare PCI slot free then forget about USB hubs and go for a 4 port PCI Usb card instead. it will work as efficiently and natively as your existing USB ports do now and is much to be preferred over any USB hubs.

    Actually I like USB hubs for devices that are frequently plugged and unplugged. Easier to get at. Design is important. I like this one.
