This 4 Port USB Device Server is like an instant NAS, just add hard drives. It connects to your LAN over 10/100/1000 Ethernet and lets you share up to 4 USB things including printers, scanners, storage or USB fishtank. Only one PC can connect to it at a time, but it’ll do transfer speeds of 28MB/s over Gigabit LAN. May also come in handy when a USB cable just can’t make the distance. The server needs power and comes with a wall wart, network cable and a travel power adapter. Only works with Windows. ~US$58.

Having to physically remove the device for someone and then get it back from them later is a real pain. Well, here is the perfect solution – a 4 Port USB Device Server!
