    USB Hub for iMac
    I am a novice Mac user. I have an iMac OS X (10.6.2). I need to add additional USB slots. What is the best hub for my needs?

    To be honest, I purchased this Úl cheapo 4 port USB hub a few years go for about $20 and I have been using it hooked up to my Airport Extreme's USB port. I have an printer and a couple of external HD's hooked up to it, and they all stream wireless with no problems whatsoever.

    And no, it is not powered externally. I think G.E. makes it.

    Cyberpower portable 4-port, battery powered (excellent, but no longer made ); also Targus powered 7-port hub, two ports high-powered (1000 mA), audio pass through (not used).

    Powered 7 port Belkin hub for me. Cost me £10. Perfect for the job.
    Remember the more things plugged in to it, the slower the transfer speeds.
