    I'm looking for a preferrably powered USB hub for my SP1, at a hopefully modest price. If anybody has any suggestions, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    I'm using the Amazon 4 port USB 3.0 Hub with 5V/2.5A power adapter on SP3, seems to work ok.

    I've had 2 and neither lasted very long. I'm using Seagate Wireless Plus and a WD Passport. A Belkin USB 3.0 powered 4 port hub and an Inland 3 port + 2 USB 3.0 powered hub. Both worked flawlessly for about 3 weeks then quit. At first I thought the drive had failed because of a clicking sound. Further checking showed the hub failed. Motherboard ports work fine but are difficult to access. I need a hub that can handle these drives over the long term. Any suggestions?
