One can never have too many USB ports. If you think 80 ports are overkill, this new 13-port USB 2.0 hub [JP] might do the trick for you. Made by Japanese accessory maker Ainex, the so-called HUB-03 can be built into your desktop PC’s 5-inch bay.
Ainex says its self-powered hub also supports “larger devices” such as HDDs or web cameras. It’s compatible with Windows XP/Vista and 7 machines.
The HUB-03 will go on sale on August 26 with an open price model and is Japan-only.
