Summary: Excellent item. Really solved several issue I had in my home recording studio with connections to PC. Works perfect. No lag due to some items attached being different USB versions. Some USB hubs will only perform at the lowest device connected speed. This HUB maintains original devices USB Version.
Summary: It's a wonderful little thing, doesn't take much space, is lightweight, and is very versatile. It has USB ports on both sides, so I can plug in my external hard drive on one side, and the rest of the stuff on the other one. It works like a clockwork, and the blue light doesn't bother me a slightest bit, possibly for the reason that the whole setup is in my spare bedroom. I just love it.
Summary: Yes, the bright blue led can get a bit bright at night. I throw a cloth over it. In earlier models I would get a message stating not enough power. With this model, I am running 2 external hard drives, printer, wireless mouse all with no problems.
Summary: As with the other reviewers this is a great product at a great price. I usually have 4-5 devices plugged in and and all work without any issues. I have had good experiences with Belkin products in the past and this works for me.
Summary: Wow - Amazing, Can't beat it. Its inexpensive and because it is a powered hub, everything runs smoothly at the same time. I run an ipod cable, flash drive, printer, usb dvd burner (uses 2 ports - 1 is for power), usb hard drive. I have had it for about a month now.
