    Default Quest for Compatible USB hubs

    I have seen here on the forum time to time. what usb hubs work with our gear as myself is also looking for one.

    I have been emailing manufacturers to find out if their hubs do indeed have Multi TT (Transaction Translator), which is what we need due to the vestax and some other gear still in the usb 1.1 world... 99% of the manufacturers don't post this information in their spec sheets because 99% of the customers have no idea what a TT is

    So far only one of the brands I have contacted has responded, i will edit and update as which ones I find out on....
    I am still awating responses from Koutech, IoGear, and D-Link

    Confirmed Multi TT Hubs
    • USB-1870 7-Port Cables Unlimited Avg Price $30.00
    • GUH274 4-Port IOGear Avg Price $15.00
    • UH-217C-US 7-Port LinXcel Avg Price $20.00 (looks like a cloned USB-1870)



    Update 12-23-09 Belkin finally responded... here is a list of their brand Multi TT hubs.
    • F5U237 7 Port USB 2.0 Hub With Power adapter
    • F5U259 7 Port Economy USB 2.0 (discontinued)
    • F5U307 7-Port Plus Hub USB 2.0 With power adapter
    • F5U234 4 Port USB 2.0 Hub (self Powered)
    • F4U017 7 Port USB 2.0 Hub with power adapter




    Brand: Rosewill
    Dear Valued Customer,

    Thank you for your patience as we get the update from our engineers.

    All our hubs are using one TT chip because Multi-TT is used for USB 1.1 device to upper the transaction speed.

    For USB 2.0 devices, the speed are the same no matter one TT chip usedor Multi TT chip. As MTT is much more expensive, we have no plan to produce USB hub withMTT support.

    Thank you for your patience. Please let us know if you have any other questions or concerns.

    Sincerely,
    Sophia

    Tim,

    Unfortunately, we do not offer a hub that will have multiple transaction translators. Our hubs will only have a single transaction translator. Please check with one of our channel partners who may offer a solution for you.


    Thank you!

    Isn't there some way to get access to product spec sheets with some digging? I'll ask my brother about that sometime... he's an electrical engineer and this is his bag.

    yea but most of the spec sheets don't say exactly what chipset they are using... (Cypress, SMSC) etc... if they did it would make it so much easier...

    A real good write up that puts a lot of things into Layman's terms can be found on the Toms Hardware Guide...

It does exactly what it says it does. You get 7 ports and everything runs at full speed.

    Aww weak, I was afraid that thing was gonna be cheap from the looks of it. Yeah looks like a project box might be needed to reinforce the thing, maybe a thin metal plate can be gently drilled to the bottom of the case to give it more weight?
