Web Secret #96: BESTCOVERY

You would think that yours truly writes her blog on the state of the art $3,000 MacBook Pro of her dreams.

Sadly, nothing could be further from the truth. I bang out my posts on a five year old Dell Latitude D531 which I fear may expire soon. Thank you DropBox where I back up my stuff in case of the ultimate melt down...

So I wasn't surprised when two out of four of the Dell's USB ports finally stopped responding to jiggling motions and sweet nothings. I needed a USB hub to maximize the usability of the remaining ports. And I needed it fast.

Problem. I have been gifted, received as a freebie, and even purchased a variety of hubs over the years and all had one thing in common - they sucked - breaking down within days of acquisition. Some quick googling and I discovered this is a ubiquitous problem. But where was I going to find a competent referral to a top notch hub?

At of course! Bestcovery's tagline is "Discover the Best of Everything." They promise to answer a single question: “What is the best product or service for your specific need?” and they do this with an expert community made up of devoted industry veterans.

I typed in "USB hub" in their search window and immediately accessed a list of carefully ranked and reviewed hubs including the top rated Atomik Tech 10 Port Hub which I promptly purchased from

Bestcovery I love thee.
