Go down to your local computer store and ask for a 4 port usb hub; compusa has tons of them and I need to pick up one myself since I have a lot of usb devices now.

Or you can use that as an excuse to buy a new monitor. Many essentially have built in USB hubs.

See if your device has a 1394 connector. If it does, connect to 1394, which can be over 20 times faster than USB. And when you add more devices it doesn't drag your system down like USB does.

Ever heard of 1394 revision II?
1600Mbs/second transfer rate will kick USB 2.0's butt every single day.

i won't get excited unless i actually see usb 2.0 come out.
Same with all things in the computer industry esp vid cards and cpus...Can you say vapourware ??? hehe

I don't get excited until i actually see them released and showing thatthey actually deliver what they promise

Yes, I agree; I can't stand vaporware (BitBoys ring a bell?). But they announced and delivered on USB 1 and I think they can do it again.
