Windows 10: Powered USB Hub Solved

    Powered USB Hub

    Could someone wise please recommend a quality 4 port v3.0 powered USB hub with a UK mains plug PSU? I need it for keyboard, mouse, printer and Saitek X52 Pro joystick - the latter will not work unpowered with the rest. I've had a devil of a time trying to find Best Buy reviews or product.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Not sure about the need for USB 3, most problems I've seen with USB-connected printers, especially older to slightly older, was with USB 3 ports instead of using USB 2 ports. Most times mice and keyboards will work on either but have low power requirements.

    Some devices just do not play well with hubs and have to be plugged into pc direct.
