Do these perform as well as internal hubs, eg. do they slow printing down of effect digital camera downloading? Thank you

some devices do not like running on external hubs. also a powered hub is betterthan a non-powered hub exspecially if the devices suck a bit of juice :)

you will only get a slowdown if you are useing multiable USB device all at the same time.

USB is a relatively new standard --- in version 2.0 . So most USB peripherals work, mostly. ;-) As various manufacturers gradually understand the standards, and make their hardware to conform to it exactly, things will improve.

By the time the USB interface is obsoleted by the next "better, newer, faster, cheaper" interface most USB peripherals will work, mostly. ;-)

Nikon Coolpix 3100 camera does'nt like an external USB hub, ended up using a Card Reader to download photos to computer.
