Summary: I picked one of these up years ago, the original ran for about 4-5 years before it finally started to fail, in the form of not passing any signal on whatsoever. That's a fair lifespan, but whatever the case, Belkin has lifetime warranties on all their hubs, and the warranty process is pain free.
Pros: Works. Lifetime warranty.
Cons: Mine broke, after several years of use. Not too bad.
Pros: Um works for a brief while. Is doing what the device is supposed to do anyways, for a few minutes, considered a pro?
Cons: What a piece of junk. My USB devices are red hot to the touch when using this hub. Causes write errors, etc. It's not the fault of the devices themselves, they worked fine off of the motherboard's USB ports without overheating. What could be the cause? Hmmmm big mystery.
Pros: Stackable, 7 Ports, Not Bulky i can honestly say that i am 100% satisfied with this product. I run a small home recording studio through my macbook pro laptop (2 USB ports). I needed extra space to connect my audio interface, external drive, midi keyboards..etc... ive plugged all of those things ...
Cons: Terrible product by Belkin, while it includes multiple ports for all of your USB needs, they failed at the part where this thing is supposed to function properly; I'm already on my second hub and both have "crapped out" on me. They just stopped working; all ports failed to recognize anything plug...
Cons: Works for a few weeks, then either most of the ports stop working or it can draw down the power from a charging device (like an iPod) and temporarily doorstop it. Constant, high-pitched whine from power supply.
Summary: I've heard about connecting printer, scanner, and external harddrives on this hub... connecting 7 external harddrives into this hub is definitely not a good idea.
Pros: Fast. All ports are working properly. I have a thumb drive, cooling fan, keyboard, mouse, and an external harddrive plugged in and have them running for 24/7, no overheating issue so far. It's warm
Cons: The rubber smells strong at first. The design looks cheap, and LEDs aren't in line but those are minor
Pros: I've been using this device for about 3-4 months and it functions exactly as expected. No problems with connecting devices and staying connecting or running hot as some other reviewers have had. Reliability is good, always works, every time. Overall, I've had good luck with Belkin products. I use...
