So i buy a 7 port powered hub from argos today in the half price sale for Â£12.50 get it home and its knackered so i get it replaced only to find the flightstick that i tested in it that worked the other day is now dead wether its a result of the dodgy hub i dont know as my external hard drive that i tried in it still works fine
the new hub however gets very hot almost painful to touch is this normal? all it needs is to have my external hard drive (which has its own power) plugged into it for it to get really hot.
could the original (damaged) hub have knackered my flight stick?
is it supposed to get really (really) hot :a
i reckon i should just get a refund tomorrow, your thoughts?
