PS3 Slim USB Hub

17 replies 9459 views Edited Nov 10, 2009

Can anybody please recommend a good USB hub for the PS3 slim. The 2 USB ports aren't cutting it with me, I need a minimum of 4 ports. I've been looking at these ones,

 

Link 1

 

Link 2

 

Link 3

 

The 3rd one looks like a good one but I don't know if it would fit the Slim, does anybody have it? If so how does it work?

 

Thanks for your help.

I just went on e-bay and brought one for I think 3 bucks. It works fine and the really cool thing is that it's the same black as the PS3 and the power circle glows the same color blue as when there is a disc inserted.

Just buy whatever. The only thing I would look for is one that supplies it's own power, at least I did when I bought mine.

It's over 4 years old as when I brought it I was using it to use my keyboard while playing Socom 3. It works just as well on the PS3 and I have yet to have a problem with it.

Thanks for the help everyone, I figured number 3 wouldn't fit the slim so as of right now I'm leaning towards number 2. I'm going to keep looking though.

Definately one with its own power supply.

You only have 2 USB ports, why risk burning one out by letting it power too many devices.

Spend a few xtra bucks to protect what you care about IMHO

I use a Linksys 7 port USB 2.0 hub and it works fine. To clean up the PS3 front-end I use a 90 degree USB 2.0 cable so the cord comes out on the lef side of my PS3 without sticking straight out from the system. Works great and looks clean.
