Satechi Reveals 10 Port USB 3.0 Hub

Satechi has released a 10 port USB 3.0 hub. Although the market for USB 2.0 hubs has already been saturated, we can certainly welcome a new USB 3.0 hub, especially the best one we've ever seen.

The 10 port USB 3.0 hub from Satechi has a number of very interesting features. For starters, it has a shiny piano black finish, along with USB 3.0 ports that are lit blue. Yes, your eyes are not mistaken -- ports that are LED lit. This gives the product a true quality appearance.

Nine of the USB ports, grouped into sets of three, are standard USB 3.0 ports. The tenth port sits on the side, which is a high current (2.1 A) port intended for charging tablets or devices that require a bit more juice. When this port is not in use, the user can turn it off, and the saved power can be distributed over the rest of the USB 3.0 ports. The unit, therefore, also ships with its own power supply.

This unit is already listed on Amazon.com for a price of $49.99.

    Looks interesting enough. Already got one recently though, a Uspeed USB 3.0 7 Port Hub, really good too.
