Default For anyone looking to do 4-port mini usb internal mod... - 06-19-2010, 04:32 AM

NEW Micro Innovations 4-port Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Hub - eBay (item 190406181442 end time Jun-19-10 08:00:09 PDT)

This here looks like a deal to me. $5, and it looks tiny. If I didn't have a stock of lil usb hubs I would buy one myself.

Please post internals if you snag one.

It looks a bit on the large side to me.

Many "standard" USB hubs can be broken down (have their outer shells and connectors removed) to fit within other devices as a modification to install additional internal USB devices.
Lately however there are some specialty ones that are designed specifically for that purpose and get even smaller, allowing more options for stashing 'em somewhere within something.

That offer has ended. Same supplier has more at a higher price, it seems, apparently the same thing photo'ed from the other side. Note that it may require an external power supply, that is part of the offer.
