Sabrent Mountable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub for LCD Displays or Desks makes it easy to expand your USB access.
We still live in a wired world and no wires are more prevalent than USB cables. Even your most basic use of a computer usually depends heavily on the external devices you connect to it, such as additional storage, printers, etc. The Sabrent Mountable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub tries to make life on your desk a little less messy by allowing you to attach a 4-Port USB hub basically anywhere you want.
The Mountable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub comes packaged with a USB 3.0 cable and one additional set of adhesive rubber stickers. Out of the box, I could tell that this was a hefty device and very well-built. The hub will work with Mac OS X, Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8, and Linux.
OK, call me fan boy but the first thing I loved about this device was that it has an anodized aluminum finish that matches my MacBook Pro and Thunderbolt Display finishes perfectly. I’m a big believer in creating a work environment that flows together and this device immediately fit in with its surroundings.
This really couldn’t be easier, but for the sake of doing a well rounded review I’ll explain how easy it is to use this USB Hub. You simply select a location on the top, bottom or side of your LCD display and adjust the hand screw on the back of the hub to get a snug fit. There is padding on both sides of the clamp to protect your device from pressure and scratching. You then plug in the included USB 3.0 cable to an open port on your computer or USB equipped display and you are in business.
However, the fun does not stop with displays, you can attach this to a desk, table, counter or any other relatively flat surface that is 1” thick or less. In my daily work and writing for MacSources I am always plugging and unplugging USB devices from my MacBook Pro. Even with the extra USB ports that my Thunderbolt Display gives me, I find myself frequently reaching behind the display to add and remove devices. The Sabrent Mountable 4-Port USB 3.0 Hub for LCD Displays or Desks has now become a permanent fixture on my desk because it looks great, works great and most importantly, it got some cable clutter out of my life.
I would recommend this hub to anyone needing a mountable solution for home or office. It has an MSRP of $39.99.
