    Sick Of Weak USB Hubs. Any recommendations?

    Quite annoyed each time I get a USB hub it shows all kinds of pictures of general stuff that its intended to work for. They come with AC adapters in all. I connect something light like a thumb drive and something like a AC powered USB HDD and it results random disconnects, reconnects...makes my resources unavailable to the program...Its frustrating...had this problem with different hubs on various computers. Just brought a usb 3.0 hub still the same mess.

    Has anyone purchased a hub where it survives whatever you throw at in the chain?

    yeah, I got one made by Rosewill and it handles everything that I plug and unplug into it without an issue.
