Need USB Hub Suggestion for Dimension 8200

by pagenie / January 17, 2012 6:32 AM PST

I have a Dell Dimension 8200 PC. I am wanting to find a 4-port USB Hub for connecting an HP All-In-One 3200 printer, a Netgear Wireless Adapter and a Logitech wireless keyboard and mouse. I am running Windows XP. Can someone please suggest a hub that would work?

Thanks, 'Genie

I've always considered hubs as some utility hardware that always works. A powered hub is better if there are power hungry devices connected to it.
