Re: Recommendations for USB hub

Yes, there are plenty of inexpensive USB 3.0 hubs on Amazon, some have switches for each port like that one, and some even have their own power supply.

What I did is add a multi port PCIe 1x USB 3.0 card, and I added 2 more USB 3.0 front panel ports, with a 3.5" bay adapter that also connects to the same card. And I use a non-powered for some things that don't need much power, and that I want to be able to disconnect and reconnect easily, like web cams, and SDR receivers, etc. Hard drives I connect to the additional ports on the front of the PC, or the back.

I've looked at powered hubs, but don't really need one, so haven't gotten one yet.
