Best USB Hub for PS4 Android Central 2020
With hard drives, charging cables, flash drives, PlayStation Move controllers, PSVR headsets, and more fighting for life on your PS4, you'll find that there just aren't enough USB ports to go around. Instead of endless amounts of cable swapping, you can remedy that problem with a good USB hub. Here are some of our favorites.
- Our pick: Anker 4-Port USB 3.0 HUB
- Give me moar!: Anker 7-port USB 3.0 hub
- Simple and cheap: Sabrent 4-port USB 3.0 hub
- Blend right in: ElecGear 5-port USB Extender
- Aesthetic grace: Vertical Data Hub
- An all-in-one solution: Skywin all-in-one stand
The Anker's slim aluminum design and premium quality finish make it a great addition to your PS4 setup, and the four USB 3.0 ports give you high-speed access to more peripherals. It's our favorite USB Hub for more than just the PS4.
If three extra USB 3.0 ports aren't enough for your peripheral crazed life, how about six more? The Anker 7-port hub is a powerhouse that even has a two-amp port for charging your smartphone while you play.
Were you looking to save money? Sabrent's 4-port USB 3.0 hub is affordable and does what you need — powers your USB-based peripherals and accessories. Maybe it doesn't look as good on top of a PS4, but if you are on a tight budget, then there's nothing better.
This hub replaces the two USB ports on the front of your PlayStation Pro with four USB 2.0 for your peripherals and one USB 3.0 for your solid-state storage. Because it slides onto the front of your PS4 Pro, it's made to blend in much better than other hubs.
This really isn't different from any of the other hubs we have showcased here except for its looks. This really caught my eye, and I think it would look great in any room with your PS4, especially if your PS4 is white!
You need more ports
The more you use your PS4, the more you realize how essential USB ports are. Every accessory you can think of needs a way to connect to the console, so having a reliable hub is important. Our recommendation is the Anker 4-port USB hub, which is not only reasonably priced, but it also gives you access to four USB 3.0 hubs to make your storage solutions as fast as possible. The fact that it is a matte black aluminum is a huge bonus, too, since it'll look great next to your console.
However, there undoubtedly other options available if you're looking for something else. I am also a big proponent of all-in-one solutions like the Skywin charging stand. I have a PS4 Pro, a PSVR, Move Controllers, and headphones, so having a place to put them all is a huge plus. If you don't have as much space or the items necessary, the Vertical Data Hub from Kokovolta is a great option thanks to its design, as it won't take up much space and can hold plenty of plugs.
No matter which hub you go with, there's more than enough options to choose from, and there's bound to be an option for whatever your current gaming setup requires.
