Startech Hub fitted to NEQ6

Recommended Posts

Just fitted this to the mount using a mount screw, I've checked all the wiring by moving the mount every which way and all seems secure.

Do you think this is OK instead of using Velcro??

Got cable ties on Rob and checked the mount doesn't snag them! 👍

Ron I would move that to a corner mounting screw.

The one you have it fixed to holds the motherboard.

OK, thanks Graham! I'll move it tomorrow. That's the sort of observation I was looking for. Thanks again..

No worries Ron.

Dont want you knocking the hub and breaking the board.

Moved the hub onto the 'right' screw and added some Velcro behind.

Having returned the Startech hub I'm now wondering whether I should order another or change the make??

USB 2 I believe, it's a few years old as is my laptop. Not decided on a hub yet but no hurry this time of year!!

New hub has arrived, I chose the same make as my original one. I'll decide where to mount it when it stops raining (when!!)
