Re: USB 2.0 rear ports won't work with USB hub
Dang, you've used all 8 rear USB 3.0 positions huh?
That Slim Spider you link to, it has a 2.5mm socket for external power so I'm guessing Digitus/Assmann would have a external power brick or possibly USB A Male to 2.5mm cable that would provide the needed auxiliary power to it. But IMO 2.5mm plugs aren't hardy/sturdy enough to take repeated stresses. Worse, considering where it looks like it plugs into on the Spider hub you linked, it would stick out a 90deg angle to the casing, inviting even more undue stress.
