Overkill Alert: Century's 16-Port USB Hub

Illustration for article titled Overkill Alert: Centurys 16-Port USB Hub

Raise your hand if you could use a 16-port USB hub. Now then, for the six of you who raised your hand, check out this hub from Century. (Yes, I'm fully aware that hubs with more ports exist, but Century's doesn't resemble a third grader's science fair project.) In addition to being a port fiend, Century's hub can also simultaneously connect to two PCs using a selector. Granted, a 16-port USB hub might not generate the same kind of excitement as a giant walking robot elephant or anything, but I'll be damned if I'm not constantly swearing at my iMac for not having enough USB ports.

It would certainly help me.

I have:

- USB keyboard

- USB mouse

- USB cafe pad

- USB outboard HD

- USB fishtank

- USB missile launcher

- USB lavalamp

- USB cylon snowman

- USB hamster wheel

- USB disco ball

- USB self-destruction hub

So, that's 11, and I've got a few more items I'd love to add ...

- USB beverage cooler

- USB-charged bluetooth handset

- USB missile launcher #2

- USB snakelight

- USB fan

So, I can easily fill it up. At my current rate of USB acquisitions, I'd need a pair.
