So, are you running out of USB 2.0 ports on your motherboard? Apacer has come up with an interesting and well designed product called PH151. The engineers didn't a fantastic job on the design but the marketing department could have come up with a more exciting name!

PH151 is a 4-port Hi-Speed USB hub supporting transfer rates up to 480Mbps but before you begin to yawn, it is rather interesting. Instead of being a regular flat shaped hub design, it is designed using a Y shape, which means there will be no more port blocking by attached pen drives.

There are two ports on the top and two on the front - I like the top ports as it will allow pen drives to stand vertically which would make for a nice change. Best of all, it will only cost you $20 AUD down under and weighs just 41 grams.


Sydney Australia - April 16 2008 - Far from bleak USB accessory products, Apacer Technology has released the Apacer PH151, a simple design yet revolutionary fun "Y"-shaped USB 2.0 hub. It comes in two funky colours - Brilliant Orange or Designer Black. The Apacer PH151 has four USB ports from side and top connections packed in a compact frame making USB connections effortless. Gone are the days of one USB device blocking two side-by-side USB ports because of the device's different, angles, thickness and direction. PH151 also organises your myriad of USB devices through its outstanding Y-shape design. The PH151 is both useful, excellent value, convenient, and portable weighing only 41 grams.
