    Doctor Who Tardis 4-Way USB Hub Views: 2102
     Thursday, February 01 2007 @ 05:09 PM EST
    I find my tardis hub is powered directly by my pc so I do not need to use the power adaptor so you might be ok importing to the the US. I will say however that I only currently use one of the usb sockets so I am not sure if relying on the pc power will affect performance if you plug multi items in the hub. I just like having it sat on my desk at home and seeing the tardis materialise when I boot up by pc. Big Grin

    The hub per se wouldn't require power, but to drive devices that require the bus to be powered may not get enough current from the USB bus to operate/charge properly, this includes a number of scanners, mp3-type players, etc.

    This is why over the years I have only bought powered USB hubs just to be covered.

    I particularly like the Kensington 7-port weighted dome, which comes with a USB LED goose neck lamp. But the TARDIS hub looks cool. It could have had more ports, though. Cry

    edit: "It" instead of "I" in "It could have had more ports"

    Gotta love the dome! I don't have that one, but my very first USB hub was also a Kensington (back in the pre-2.0 USB days). It was very solid. The couple others I got after that one from other manufacturers, while work fine, feel a bit flimsy being made of plastic... whereas the Kensington hub sports a metal case and as I said feels solid.

    Cheers,
    Louis

    [Quote  by:  gwensdad2003] The Latest issue of Preview has it on page 468 priced at $30. It should be available in April (according to the cover)


    So is this the UK version or is it compatible with US power outlets? If it's the latter, I'm gonna start lobbying for a birthday present!!

    It doesn't specifically say, but it is in the "import" section, so that that as you may.
    (but the page before it had sonic screwdrivers for $13, I think I may be getting another one)

    One should be able to get a substitute power adapter at any decent electrical products outlet. One needs to match the DC voltage (7.5V) and current (0.5A or 500mA) and make sure it has the right shape plug and the polarity is set correctly.

    I love mine, picked it up the last time i was inthe UK and it works w/o any power supply.

    It allows my VideoIpod to charge, so all it good.

    WhoNA seems to think the US versions may have the correct adapter... WhoNA Forums.
