Using compliment when you mean complement! These are not interchangeable words, people.

When you have a 7-port USB hub you do not get seven more outlets than you did before. After all you will need to take up one previously available outlet to hook up the hub!


  1. Offtopic perhaps, but what on earth do you need that many USB ports for?

  2. I plan to hang up a bunch of USB-serial adapters to it, combined with null-modems, creating a remote serial console of sorts that way.

  3. Crazy! But cool! I wanna do what you do when I grow up 🙂

  4. Compare the price of the parts to that of an actual 8-port remote serial console and you’ll see why. Unless you’ve seen those for much cheaper than I have, in which case I’d love to hear about it!
