Summary: I bought this so long ago, that i don't even see it listed on my account. Might be an old account. None the less, its been kicking fine. This device DOES work without the AC adapter so long as you're not using things like HD's or charging things from it. Thats not the devices fault. Worth the money.
Pros: Its been reliable through the years 1 port to 4 ports uses a standard mini usb plug optional AC adapter(not needed for low power devices) Slim, perfect for travel
Cons: It doesn't somehow generate power without wires lol
Pros: I have my laptop cooler, Headset, Keyboard and sometimes my mouse plugged in and they all work perfect. I've seen some hubs short out or bog cause too much power is circuiting threw it.. This one has yet to show any signs of doing that. It's Tiny and sleek! You'd have no idea it was there and can...
Cons: It's almost too small... lol I recommend getting 2 sided tape or some kind of velcrow (if that's how you spell it) and making this little guy stationary. With numerous cables running through it, it kind of just floats all over the place lol
Summary: Appears to work fine with other connected devices. Cannot function without the power supply, which is not ideal for a mobile user. If you have external storage needs like myself you might want to look for a more robust hub solution or even PCI-based USB cards for reliability.
Pros: I own the 7-port version that is exactly the same except additional ports. Very Small. Inconspicuous. Driverless. Truly Plug and Play. Powers all connected devices.
Cons: I recently started experiencing strange audio issues arising from inordinate amounts of DPCs (deferred procedure calls) and hardware interrupts, which in layman's terms means the computer is having trouble communicating with a device and/or completing an operation on said device. To test my devic...
Summary: Should definitely include Velcro in the packaging as the other reviewer stated.
Pros: 3 extra USB ports. lightweight. looks nice.
Cons: Requires additional power source. Although stated as USB 2.0 it has trouble handling a mouse and keyboard. When using firefox and attempting to open another tab using Ctrl+T it opens like 10 additional tabs. Also my Logitech optical mouse will cut in and out at times during internet browsing and ...
