I would recommend the Anker 10-port USB hub. It's a little bit on the expensive side, as it is normally listed for just under $80, but there is a sale on Amazon that has it listed for $33. Here are some of the features: Data Transfer to 5 Gb/s on all 7 available ports. 3 Additional "charging" ports that provide 2.1A so they can easily charge your phones, ...

I have a BlinkStick Square. They have a large variety of products (including an enclosure for my Square that I just noticed). The Square has 8 LEDs and each are addressable individually. The Square comes pre-assembled. There are other products that provide you with the parts so that you can build it. The API supports a number of languages (including ...

I think the best answer to your question is the Intel Compute Stick. To answer your feature requests: It is small-scale being in principle a HMDI stick (~100x27x13mm) It has a processor that is good enough (Atom Z3735F) It has 8GB (Ubuntu version) or 32GB (Windows version) of memory which is expandable by the MicroSDXC slot It has 1GB (ubuntu) or 2GB (...

I think you are probably using the wrong terms here. You seem to want basically a USB extension, cables, but with the ends that look nice. What you may be looking for would be something like a USB patch panel. These are mostly used for rankmount servers. I haven't really seen anything targeted at the desktop market. I don't have an particular experience ...

I suppose you mean an USB 3.1 hub with USB-C on both ends. Because the USB standard does not support splitters. It always needs a hub. USB charging/power cables are the exception. Also USB-C refers to the port not the cable itself. For example you can have USB 3.1 cable (with type C connectors) or a Thunderbolt 3 cable. Trust and Belkin have similar mini ...

I recommend Siva Cycle's "The Atom". This product mounts to the rear wheel. Siva has good instructions on how to install it. Using this, it can charge constantly via USB. I use it to charge my HTC M8 while using it's GPS features. It also has a battery pack, which you can use for power while away from your bicycle. One very important note: This does not ...

You might of heard of it, but the Intel Compute Stick is a very small PC running an Intel Atom processor (Atom Z3735F). The standard model has 32GB of flash storage and though it costs $150, it comes with Windows 10, which is nice even if you do plan on installing Linux. You can buy one here. I actually use this one. There are two versions of the Intel ...

The classic device for low-power Linux usage is the Raspberry Pi. Either the model 1 B+ or the model 2 B will meet your needs: 4 USB ports, can run headless just fine, is about the size of a deck of cards, and draws about 3W.

First of all, a small disclaimer. Bear in mind that whatever external fans you may feasibly buy and install will provide much less efficient cooling than an internal one, mostly due to proximity and heat dissipation efficiency (there's a reason why the fan is usually close to the heatsink, which is in direct contact with the CPU). Running the computer under ...

I recently bought the Logitech G930 ($100) headset for gaming and music and I can honestly say it's the best headset I've ever used. Circumaural and fits to ear shape (it isn't circular like most headsets — something that causes a lot of discomfort after an hour or two of wearing it) Dolby 7.1 surround sound that sounds almost just as good as sitting ...

although the answer from @JuanCarlosCoto was already accepted, I still must disagree on one point ..Bear in mind that whatever external fans you may feasibly buy and install will provide much less efficient cooling than an internal one.. An external fan, providing that is is not a blow-fan or fan pad , but an exhaust fan type, can be extremely ...

I have never used this, and I have never heard of this brand. However, this came up as one of the first results via a quick search on Google, so here it is: The IOGEAR GUS402, a USB 2.0 switch for connecting up to 4 usb devices to 2 different computers. MSRP: $50 Available on Amazon for $28 The IOGEAR GUS404, a USB 2.0 switch for connecting up to 4 usb ...

There are zero products of your specification. I suggest that you purchase multiple extension cables and group them together and simply use them. I dont think you will ever reach out to the rear end of your computer to check out the plugged in cable and plug it out. You can tape those cables together

I'm going to recommend the baby brother of Adam's answer: the Logitech G430. Regular price is around $75. It fits over the entire ear (and isn't circular). I can wear it for hours at a time with no discomfort. 7.1 surround sound. It works very well in both games and movies. Noise canceling microphone. Team mates in games mentioned that the clarity is ...

I agree with Firepower and SEJPM that the Intel Compute Stick is the route to go for around $150 but if you are looking for a cheaper version of that, the MeeGoPad T02 is a great alternative for $79 (The Ubuntu Version) and around $109 (The Windows 8.1 with upgrade to Windows 10 Version) Both sticks have a Intel Atom Z3735f processor, 2GB's of Ram and 32 GB'...

Just because this thread is one of the top google search results for USB-C 3.1 (and USB-C 3.1 gen 2) splitters/hubs and Thunderbolt hubs I want to provide some products that I had to search for for a long, long time. As Mumblic pointed out the availability for splitters are somewhat limited. I looked around a bit anyways and found a couple of products (hubs!...

There are essentially two options: A USB hub with power control, such as this one, which was designed for this purpose. It seems like some other USB hubs can do this too, check this question over at StackOverflow for specifics and possibly other methods of doing this. DIY, with a USB-controlled relay to switch the power to the usb device on and off, see ...

One of my go-to brands for cables and adapters is Anker and they make a USB-C to HDMI adapter that has some really strong reviews: Anker Premium USB-C Hub with HDMI and Power Delivery It's best to stay away from "house brands" and brands you have never heard of. A Google engineer has been testing various USBC cables and has found many which can fry your ...

You might consider just adding a microphone to your setup (i.e. "convert" your headphones to a headset), like this lapel microphone from Zalman. That's what I've bought to use with my Sennheiser HD558's to great effect, and it costs around $9. You could also purchase a USB sound system, like this Creative X-Fi external pre-amp and sound system, which you ...

If a good USB Hub with more than 4 ports is what you are looking for then you should check out Anker USB Hubs like this one https://www.anker.com/products/A7513141 It's a 7 port Aluminum hub, USB 3.0, with a 5V 3.0A power adapter. As for reviews.... Their site: From Amazon: They make hubs that go from 4 ports to 14 ports so there is a lot of choice. ...

Due to the fact that this is novelty on the market, it would be not that easy to find exacly what you want but Elgato Thunderbolt Dock is relatively close. We can expect that they will release similar model with Thunderbolt 3. Two Thunderbolt 2 ports Built-in HDMI port Built-in Gigabit Ethernet Three USB 3.0 ports

This cannot exist. If it's connected via USB, then it's connected via USB, no matter what it looks like and only software could provide the illusion of a "physical port". Actually, I think I missed an important pat of your question: The old software runs in a virtual machine, so all you need is for your virtual machine to expose the USB-connected ports as ...

I've been using a Plantronics Savi 700 Series for the past few years. It: Is way over budget at $400. I got this as a gift through a fortunate series of events. I'm definitely open to other recommendations of cheaper products. Connects to my MacBook through USB (the cord goes from the base to the laptop) The headset itself is wireless, and has range ...

It looks like your case has standard front-panel audio. If that's correct, it makes finding compatible front-panel bays much easier. The cheapest 5.25" bay I've been able to find is this $40 bay from Kingwin, which in addition to two USB 3.0 ports and HD audio, has an eSATA port, an everything-under-the-sun card reader, two fan controllers, and a ...
