Having a laptop or a desktop and many external HDD or mobiles, cameras and other smart devices, means having many USB ports.

If you have a laptop like I do, You have only 3 or 4 usb ports, which in many situations is more than little! In these situations, having a USB Hub, could be a big help!Taking under consideration that now days devices are more and more fast, suport USB 3.0, finding a good HUB which supports USB 3.0, is a miracle. And I guess Qicent this is what does with their QICENT 7 Port USB 2.0/3.0 HUB w/ 12V Power Adapter!
