Yes, APEX supports 2.0 hubs but 3.0 hubs are reported to work by the community as well.

Oh, interesting. So in case the provided apex hub broke down or if i want to to just replace it with another hub, I can do so?

Yes. XIM also supports more than 3 concurrently connected USB devices. I regularly use 5 devices on my APEX via a powered, 12V, 13 port USB hub.

So if using a different hub, say anything more then the 3 hubs on xim hub, is there still a specific configuration as far as what plugs where?
