Summary: Would of been nice to include a bag or carrying case of some sort so expand, and support this "hub-to-go". Besides that, for the price, it does it all and then some.
Pros: Nice long usb cable and power cable. The base features a sort of dish to hold flash drive caps, paper clips and other assortments that did help. My favorite of them all was the removable top piece sporting 4 usb ports from 1. Nice color, very light weight, and is plug-n-play.
Cons: The removable 4 port usb piece doesnt snap in and out as easily as you would expect. Its almost to light weight that a few cables could keep it from where you would want it.
Summary: Some sort of clip mechanism would be nice. If it had a functional clasp and a small weight at the front.
Pros: It's a USB hub and you can travel with 4 unpowered ports if you need them.
Cons: The travel part of the hub doesn't seem to lock in properly and therefore disconnects and reconnects frequently. When this happens sometimes Windows 7 suggests that attached hard drives should be formatted before use even though they are perfectly functional drives. Because of the USB connections...
Pros: This is a really nifty USB hubs, in a sea of other nifty USB hubs. It's a USB hub, buddy. How much detail can one possibly go into? It has worked with everything I have plugged into it and it has a very pleasant aesthetic. I also found another secondary benefit... my Motorola Droid fits PERFECTLY...
Cons: None I am aware of. Price maybe. I got it when it was on sale for a great deal less than its current price.
Summary: I like the design. However, the detachable USB hub not functioning correctly is unacceptable. This "7-port hub" is essentially only a 3-port hub. Even those 3 ports are crammed together making it less useful.
Pros: Clean, appealing design. The rear USB connections work fine, however, the positioning of the main USB connector (to the computer), the power supply, and the 3 USB connections connections between them doesn't allow for wider USB peripherals to be used.
Cons: There is a big con. The top (detachable) USB hub is very flakey. With the power plugged in - I have tried with low powered memory card readers, USB flash drives, wireless cards, etc. All of them turn on and off intermittently as soon as you plug anything in, causing the OS to complain the periphe...
Summary: My inspiron M1330 does not bootup probably when it is plugged in. I have to unplug it, let it boot up first, then plug it back in. It may be because I have external Hard drives attached to it. I have not figured out the best way yet.
Pros: Lots of USB 2.0 ports and detachable. No problem being detected on Windows 7.
Cons: Power stays on and doesn't go to sleep when the computer/laptop is turned off. I wish it would go into sleep mode.
