    Default Which USB hub do you use?

    I have a Macbook Pro previous gen with only 2 usb ports and am looking for a USB hub to connect potential equipment...

    Of course my main concern is the power output, can something in the ExpressCard/34 slot provide enough power to the VCI-100 (for example) or the X-Session Pro...

    Thanks!

    Yeah i have no problem powering the any of my units off my expresscard via the usb port - not so lucky with the 2 firewire ports that are also on the card though.

    Id recommend a expresscard over a USB hub as you will avoid latency and jitter.

    Which brand do you use, local shop has a StarTech.com ... seems cheap ... and reviews are hard to find for these things!

    Make sure its got a texas instruments chipset and you should be fine.
