Please recommend a good powered usb hub

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
The problem I'm trying to solve: I have 8 Seagate GoFlex 3TB external drives (usb 3.0). I want to connect them via powered usb hub. The power blocks that come with these drives are fat and a pain to plug in (the bloks cover the adjacent sockets).
Would it be possible to use a powered usb hub and connect and power the drives this way, instead of using separate external power blocks? I know, that powering 8 drives at the same time is a stretch, probably, but maybe at least 3-4?

Please advise/recommend a good usb 3.0 hub.

Also, I would like to buy a good (also powered, probably) usb 2.0 hub for my OUYA. Please recommend.

Thank you in advance.

Hm, as far as I know, 7 port usb hubs is the most you can get in one hub. I haven't heard about a hub that can power external HDD's tho.
