One major drag of using a desktop PC stems from having the PC right there. Whether it's a notebook, home theater PC, mainstream desktop, or hulking enthusiast rig, if you're using a peripheral, you're essentially tethered to a machine. Think about it: scanners, external drives, optical drives -- if they're not built into your PC, chances are that you have them attached via USB.

Now, imagine being able to use scanners, cameras, CD and DVD burners, USB Flash drives and hard drives without being tied down -- literally -- to your PC. That's the promise of Belkin's Cable-Free USB Hub.

In addition to serving as a powered, four-port USB hub, the device also enables users to use peripherals at a distance of 30 to 60 feet away from their system. That's due to its use of Ultra-wideband (UWB) wireless technology, which provides for relatively high-speed connectivity -- if short-range -- without the danger of interfering with other wireless devices.

The advantages seem numerous, but let's dig a bit further into the product before we go jumping to conclusions.
