It is very convenient to leave the USB hub on a desk for quick peripherals connections.
“I got an ARCTIC Hub for my notebook at home and I really like the simple design of this hub”, says Kei Chan, Marketing Executive of ARCTIC. She continues, “My notebook only came with two USB ports and I often find it is a hassle for me to unplug my usual devices, such as notebook cooler, when I need to access my memory cards or USB sticks. With the ARCTIC Hub, I can enjoy the flexibility in connecting any USB devices anytime. The shape of the hub allows me to connect my bulky shape USB stick so it would not collide with my desk. I even use the top port for my ARCTIC Breeze Mobile!”
