The 49 port for over $1000 is presumably priced and sold by Fried Cat.

LOL!

anker?

edit: for some reason, I thought you were trolling me with a random word. Googling shows up a bunch of usb 3.0 hubs. I heard USB miners and cgminer/bfgminer have problems with usb 3.0 though. Is there a usb 2.0 hub out there thats reliable?

I have a USB 3 hub going into a multi USB PCI card in an old WinXP rig which has been the most stable setup I've tried.

I like the 3.0 since they have more power per port but perhaps they work better when having to convert back down to USB 2

food for thought

No matter what USB hub I buy, I need to make sure to have an extra USB port for my new toy:

That was my initial choice. Here is another link to it with specs: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/eecf/#tabs

Power Adapter
cUL, FCC
Input: 100 - 240 V, 50/60 Hz; 1.6A, maximum
Output: 5 V / 4 A
Cable: 1.2 m (6 ft.)

Only enough power to run 8   Cry

See the bolded statement above... it only runs 8.

The best solution for 10+ I've found so far is the Anker linked in this thread earlier.

the anker USB 3.0 hubs are the best if you are not suing PI.... you can run 10 USB on each hub. I had 76 erupters set up on 8 anker hubs via windows running on bfgminer perfect

Makes me think that you can use 2 5V/3A adapters to get 6A meaning it can run atleast 12 most likely 16.

yes you would most likely need an additional power adapter to get the hub fully powered.

Looks nice.
Is this charging port also data connected? This 2.1A would be perfect for powering the cubieboard i guess.

the anker 10 port 3.0 usb, it powers 10 hubs, tried and tested... does not work on a PI apparently

No it only provides power. You can use it for a fan though.

Message me if you have any problems
