Summary: Why do they even make this? It serves no real function. I'm incredibly disappointed, and have managed to wait too long to bother returning it.
Pros: Cute - sounded like it would work.
Cons: I only wanted to use it for maybe 3 devices. It will occasionally support either my phone, or a usb drive, or my mouse. Never more than one at a time, and it will rarely work with even just 1 device plugged in.
Summary: I purchased this item from a local store in Houston and do not remember exactly why I chose this over other products. I don't mean that in a bad way, I'm just not sure if my decision was based on cost, employee recommendation, roll of the dice, etc.
Pros: I can't think of any
Cons: Look at it wrong and it disconnects. It is impossible to plug anything in or unplug any other device from the hub without everything disconnecting.
Pros: Looks nice, lots of ports and options. Very plug and play.
Cons: Connections are all very loose, especially the power and main USB cable you run from the unit to your computer. If I plug something in and bump the unit the wrong way, it will randomly turn off and everything connected will disconnect from your computer for a few seconds. Also, it does not seem t...
Pros: Very portable and small. Powered versus non powered ones.
Cons: It disconnects itself when bumped or removing a device from it unless you hold the hub still and pull the device directly out of the socket. Very annoying when all of your devices I.E. Hard drives get disconnected when all you were doing was removing a simple iPod cable in a hurry.
Summary: Good for jump drives and small devices. When it comes to external HD and iPod, dont buy.
Pros: Looks good, light, 7 ports.
Cons: I honestly went overboard with the 7-port thing, because I only use 3 or so at a time. Everything works well, exept when I plug my iPod in. It freezes my iPod, making me unplug the whole hub and plug the iPod directly into my laptop's usb. It never fails. I listed "light" as a pro, but its kinda ...
Summary: Very light weight. Not a good hub for a lot of plugging and unplugging, because you need to hold the hub while doing so. I have a much bigger desktop hub for that. This hub sits behind my PC for all my stationary devices.
