Hi everyone

So far the most recommended USB hubs seems to be this D Link 7 port hub with 5v 3Amp plug: http://www.amazon.co.uk/D-Link-DUB-H7-Port-USB-External/dp/B0002AFZVM

Now in the USA it seems a lot of people are using Rosewill RHB-520 - 10 ports 5v 3.5Amp: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182257

If you live in the UK what are you using?

Trying to locate the best pricing / reliability

Thank you in advance everyone

Raspberry Pi is incompatible with USB 3. Found out the hard way Sad I'm still looking for the best price point / quality / power. So far DLink from Amazon.co.uk seems to be the best

I'll check out scan.co.uk never heard of it before

thank you everyone


p.s. UK bitcoin mining community needs a meet up

Yep, Orico, I use them, good quality and 3A x 12V = 36W (10x ports 3.6W per port) £17.99 (never needed the more expensive USB 3.0 version)

They're shipped from Hong Kong but don't incur any import duty because they're under £20 value.

Please pester Scan to accept Bitcoins via BitPay. Point out there's no charge backs so it's zero scams for their pickup service.
I often see them struggling to accept PayPal pickups from people who's address don't match. Wink
