FYI: I have tried 4 different usb charger hubs (all with a rated 2.1amps per port) and only the LinearFlux HyperCharge Hub works with this little computer.(not willing to buy more hubs). The other 3 2-port hubs cause video blanking and erratic operation. Just an observation.

I do like the little computer as well as the plywood case - nice job guys!

TBH I wouldn't have expected any USB hubs even if powered to be good enough or reliable enough.

Also take note that you can have a good power supply but crappy cable and it won't work.
I had to go through all my micro usb cables to find one that wouldn't reboot itself.
