Eventually, every road warrior must return to their desk. And then begins the giant time suck that is reconnecting your notebook to the peripherals at that desk. HP’s USB Media Port Replicator makes that task dead simple, saving you valuable time for things like football, macramé, and Jello shots. A single cable (included) connects the replicator to a USB port on your notebook, and then… well, that’s it. You’re done already!

The HP USB Media Port Replicator sports four USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port, an external monitor port that supports resolutions up to 1920 x 1080, and even microphone and headphone jacks. So you keep everything plugged into the replicator, and instantly have use of them with a single quick connection. Easy peasey. Best of all, we’ve slashed the price from $79.99 to a paltry $9.99. (Even if all you use it for is as a four-port USB hub, it’s still a steal.)
