What is a USB hub?🤷‍♂️

Electric USB HUB

A USB HUB is a device that allows you to connect various devices to its integrated USBs, allowing connection through a cable. USB HUBs are connected to a computer to often plug in keyboards, mice, USB memory, Wi-Fi antenna, charging cable...

What devices can be connected to a USB HUB?

There are several types of USB HUB, the most common are those that include a network connection (RJ45), USB ports, HDMI port to connect devices such as monitors, televisions... and there are also those that have a port for SD memory and micro SD.

What is a switch?

A switch or also called a switch is a device used to connect several computers to a network forming what is known as a local area network (LAN) and whose technical specifications follow the standard known as Ethernet. To connect the computers to the switch, the aforementioned cable ( RJ45 ) is used.

What is the difference between the USB HUB or the Switch?

The biggest difference between the usb hub and the switch is in the way of sending the data to the different computers connected within the same local network. The Hub is responsible for sending the data to all the computers equally, while from the Switch we can select the only recipient of the same. In other words, if we use a USB HUB and we want to send a photo, it will be sent to all the devices connected to it; while if we use a switch and want to send a photo, we can select the recipient of our choice.

Now, what is better? From our opinion you should use a HUB if you want to share data with all the computers connected to it. Whereas if you want to only send information to certain computers and not others, then the Switch is probably the best option.
