The other day, without much forethought, I was about to purchase a “generic” 4 port usb hub because I’m using more and more storage devices such as my SanDisk Extreme 500 Portable SSD 120GB . . . that I purchased in March.
Furthermore . . . . last week, I installed “Solus OS” on the SanDisk, but I realized if I want to take full advantage of the rated speed (415 MB/s . . . yes, 415 MB/s), . . . it needed a usbv3 port! . . . (which are in short supply on my Acer laptop). In fact, I have only 1 such port on that machine.
So, I opted to get the above Sabrent v3 hub. I’m a bit surprised that I hadn’t thought of this before.
Now, I’m absolutely looking forward to demo’ing both devices at one of our next meetings. A full linux OS on a very small SSD with usbv3 is like having 2 PC’s. The speed and functionality are amazing.
