  • Cons: It comes shipped in packaging that has no way to open other than with scissors/knife and you may cut yourself.

I believe it's worth the $5

  • Summary: An older, somewhat junkie HP laptop came into my possession recently that is known for it's tragic overheating. After modding it a bit and doing some cutouts, I added a laptop cooler just for extra measures rendering the toasty top one less USB port. I thought to myself, "it's time to click over to NEWEGG and remedy this issue." Immediately I sort through refurbs and open box items to no avail. I'm cheap...
  • Pros: Adds a few inches of extension.
  • Cons: Does not work with my Linksys wireless USB dongle. I don't use this dongle, (I like saying dongle) but I wanted to test many things in order to give a fair review.

Great item, a few minor issues though

  • Summary: I bought this to sit on my desk, I ran a usb extension cable from my machine up to it. It works very well, although I had some trouble plugging in a USB stick into a port with something else next to it, so had to rearrange the plugs and use it on the end one. I wish the male connector had a little longer cable, but if it did it wouldn't be so compact. This would be ideal for travel and works great. No drivers or anything silly like that on Linux.
  • Pros: Small, compact, simple, price
  • Cons: could use a little more room between ports

Warranty is worthless

  • Pros: It was a fine hub while it worked.
  • Cons: I pulled the hub off the shelf to use it one day just to find that it had completely stopped working. I contacted IOGEAR support as it was under warranty for an RMA, but that is pointless as

Nice and Compact

Sylar, Mwave.com

  • Summary: Only gripe is using on a samsung laptop, they put usb on right hand side. Being right handed it and considering where the usb port is located, it actually comes in a way a little. I wouldnt use this on a desktop due to the cable and it therefore dangling, it is more ideal for a laptop.
  • Pros: feels sturdy, I got this at a cheaper price here at mwave instead of the current advertised price and definitely worth the money for me.
  • Cons: unsure about the small cable that links the usb to the extensions, if not careful it could damage connection possibly but if connected all the time, no problems should occur
