A USB Hub That Doesn't Care Which Way You Stick It In

Illustration for article titled A USB Hub That Doesnt Care Which Way You Stick It In

It doesn't do USB 3.0, but I can forgive Buffalo for overlooking that functionality since its new four-port hub doesn't get all uptight when you try to insert a USB cable upside-down. It happily goes both ways.


And that's pretty much its claim to fame. When it's available you'll be able to get one for about $23 in four different colors, ending the days of having a 50/50 chance of inserting a USB cable correctly when you can't see the port. [Buffalo via Rocket News 24]

My folks have a Dell Dimension that has the USB ports on the front, out of view and at approximately 45 degrees. I've wasted many minutes at a time trying to plug thumb drives into those poorly thought out connections. I hope those designers were let go after creating that mess.
