Summary: This hub worked fine at first, however, now 3 months later it quit functioning properly. I have my wireless mouse adapter and wireless internet adapters plugged into the hub, because this gives me location mobility to achieve better performance.
Summary: Efficient and inexpensive, this USB hub was the very thing when I needed a solution to record audio from an external mic straight into my iPad. When coupled with the Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit I instantly gained the portability and ease of use I needed.
Summary: I was allowing nephews to play computer games on my wife's computer (my old gaming computer) and they kept plugging wired 360 controllers into the front USB ports and kept yanking loss the cabling by wrapping it around their feet or the chair and spinning on the chair (ugh!).
Summary: This is a really nice little hub. I haven't used it powered yet, but I like knowing I can plug it in if I need to. Doesn't feel chintzy or cheap and oh yeah, it stays put for me. The only thing that didn't work well was when I decided to plug the Afunta(tm)7.1 Surround Sound 12 Channel Sound Adapter...
Summary: I bought this hub so I could add an additional external hard drive to my computer for my media collection and didn't have enough USB hubs. Since my computer only has USB 2.0 hubs, I don't need a USB 3.0 hub, but for external drives I DO need a powered hub.
Summary: Had a few hard drive crashes and my wife kept losing her MS Office documents. Even though I purchased an external drive and started doing back ups the time it took to obtain a new drive restore the system could be upwards of a week do my job.
Summary: and this thing works great. I've had it for almost a year now, still functions perfectly with my backup hard drive, ipod, and usb connections. The only complaint is that it doesn't provide enough current to my phone to charge it.
