7 port Buddy Hub – Share multiple USB devices with ease

Chris Scott Barr - Jul 26, 2007

With so many devices that rely on our USB ports it’s not surprising to find many people have a USB hub, or even a switch to share a USB device between multiple computers. However, what if you wanted to combine those two things together?

Then you would have the 7 port Buddy Hub from Ultra products. It acts just like a normal USB hub, until you plug it into another PC. Then you can use the A/B buttons on top of each port to determine which device will work on which computer, rather than an all-or-nothing setup.

I have a couple of PCs that sit pretty close together, so I could definitely see the uses for such a gadget. If you’re looking to get one, they’ll only set you back $39.99 on the Ultra products website.
