Default USB 3.0 Port replicator?

Does anyone have recommendations for a good USB 3.0 port replicator? My notebook only has one USB 3.0 port. I would like more. Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

you buy a USB 3.0 hub, USB port can have dozens of things plugged into one port, with extension/hubs.
but make sure its a 3.0 hub, lots of cheap 2.0 hubs out.
a 3.0 one should cost about $10 more.

What every happened to firewire? wasn't it suppose to kill off USB

haha I believe it was supposed to. It is still common to see firewire for recording hardware... like the audio interfaces.

Though for the rest of the computer world they were pretty short lived haha

That's where I went and there's not much there with more than 5 reviews (especially with 4+ eggs)

I went searching for USB 3.0 hubs as well, and found .... nothing that specifically said 3.0 last year. Nice to know that they have finally entered the market.

Entirely possible *snicker* I'm looking at the Koutech USB 3.0 based card readers + 3 USB 3.0 ports, but that thing has some awful reviews. I'd like to revert my USB 2.0 to just the ports and have my Card readers all running off of the USB 3 (one of 2) on my motherboard....

May look around for someone else that does this as well soon. My motherboard is an X58 based mobo with only the 2 USB 3.0 Type A on the back of the mobo, no headers internally, so that means I basically either need one with a PCI 1X connector (b/c I have a 1X slot free) or else one that plugs directly into the USB 3.0 Type A connector on the back of ht mobo - and it needs to have a cable of decent length....

IEEE-1394 a.k.a. Firewire is still popular with more technical users, and "creative" users that need lots of throughput and prefer external drives.

I think that USB2 won because it had a slightly bigger number, and people who didn't know the finer points of the two standards went for the bigger number. "It's 80 faster..." A shame really.

IMO, Firewire 800 is still plenty quick for most people's needs. I'm not seeing real big USB3 support, so I'm using my existing USB2 and IEEE-1394 stuff (and my GigE NAS) until Thunderbolt comes...if it comes in a big way...
