G'day... I need a 7 port hub. I note the dramatic differences in price. Which should I buy......and why?

I will assume you are asking about a USB hub and not a network hub.

I can not recommend a particular make\model. But with any USB hub I will suggest one that uses an external power source = wall outlet to draw it`s power from.

Keep in mind you usually get what you pay for.

I second getting a powered hub.

I have the Rosewill RHB-320R myself. It works great. The hub screws onto the metal plate to stand (and it's pretty heavy) but I drilled two holes in it and mounted it to the side of my desk. The hub has worked without any trouble. You can get it at Newegg for $12.99. It comes in black too but that's sold out. I'd link it but I don't want it to risk it looking like an advertisement because that's against BC's rules.

I've seen stuff like powered 10 port hubs on eBay and I'm sure they work fine, but I imagine the build quality is subpar so I'm wary of them.
