Firewire hub recommendations

I need a firewire hub, and I was looking for recommendations.

Has anybody used any they found to be reliable or unreliable?

(Adding a drive to the front of my computer with a firewire port isn't an option, by the way.)

That's pretty cool looking, but I probably want something a little bit more discrete.

Okay, I may be able to scratch what I said about not wanting a front firewire input in one of my 3" bays. I said that because I didn't think I had any internal firewire headers.

I just bought this card ( http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...516&pfp=BROWSE ). It lists on the package "3 Connection Ports", and the rear panel does have three ports. But there's also a 4th internal port... I'm curious whether I can use that to hook up one of the front drives (such as this: http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...108&pfp=SEARCH ). Hmm...

I have this one... from Meritline. Its orange, but it does the job and has 3 firewire ports and 4 USB ports, but one of the FW ports is a line-in and then there are 4 USB ports (besides the in), and its self powered. It's only $30.
