Can anyone recommend a good USB hub?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm in desperate need of a USB hub. I have:

A digital camera
A Palm Pilot w/ serial-USB connector
A USB printer
Soundsticks w/iSub

Alas, my iMac only has two USB ports. One has the Soundsticks hooked up to it. The other has the keyboard. In turn, connected to the keyboard is the mouse (duh). So, I basically have to keep the last port on the keyboard open, rotating between the other three devices as I need them.

This is really starting to get annoying. I got an el cheapo ($15) 4-port hub awhile back, and even when I switch it to being self-powered, it barely works. I need something good... any recommendations?

I got a Belkin self powered 4 port USB hub. Works like a champ.

I've got an Entrega (they changed their name a while back) powered hub that I got over 3 years ago and it's still working great.
