Recommendations for USB cards?

Looking for some hardware advice that the HCL doesn’t seem to cater for very well.

I need to connect a reasonable (5-10) number of USB devices to guests (one per guest, passthru-style) but my servers don’t have many USB ports – and I’m led to believe we’ve tried and failed with simple USB hubs in the past.

Can anyone recommend a pcie card or chipset that would be well-supported in esxi6.0 ?
