Mousepad with USB Hub and Speaker

Here’s a multi-purpose gadget for you from  This roll-up mousepad also has a 4-port  1.1 USB hub.  It also has two speakers that can be connected to an mp3 player using the included 3.5mm audio cable.  The speakers/hub are powered with the included USB cable, but it appears there is a connector if you supply your own AC adapter.  The Roll Up Mousepad with Speaker + Hub would make a compact addition to your travel kit.  It’s $22.00 at Gadget4All.

  1. Did I hear “1.1 USB?” That limits its usefulness quite a bit. Also, the “roll-up” feature is good for traveling, but the pad will be curled up and won’t stay flat after unrolling.

    This is a neat idea, but poorly implemented.

  2. Having all the ports angled towards the user and their mouse also seems like a poor design. Cable management challenges I think. Having one USB for quick connects/disconnects (syncing a phone for instance) angled towards the user makes some sense, but the rest should be in the back out of the way. IMHO

  3. Yep, the only things people use old-style 1.1 ports for nowadays are things like keyboards and mice. Cameras, camcorders, smartphones, mp3s, tablets and hard drives are all much more usable at the higher speed.

    Poorly-implemented attempt to ask a question nobody asked, possibly. The mat would probably ruck up and rumple due to being rolled up — like rolled keyboards, the portability would get in the way of normal use a bit.
