Brando's Super 16-port USB Hub

July 25, 2008 Brando's new "Super" USB hub packs a whopping sixteen USB ports, and gives you the ability to use all the connected peripherals on a second machine at the flick of a switch. Needless to say, if this thing can't quench your thirst for USB ports, you can't be helped.

We can't help but think the device could've been improved by splitting the 16 ports into two groups of eight that could be switched between the two computers separately. This would allow you to switch a mouse and keyboard to a second computer, leaving an array of hard drives connected to the first.
