Vantec 7-Port Hub

Before USB, there were literally dozens of different standards for connecting all the varied devices to a PC. Com, parallel, external SCSI, and PS/2 ports were needed to connect things like printers, scanners, network adapters, external drives, keyboards, and mice. UBS eliminated the need for all those various standards for one high speed universal connection. Now almost every imaginable device that can connect to a PC uses USB. As the number USB enabled devices grew, so did another issue, there was often not enough USB connectors on a computer to connect everything at once. The USB hub was born, but the was still another issue that needs to be resolved, limited charging power. Vantec offers a solution to that, their 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub + 2-Port Smart Charging adapter which we will be looking at today.
