Summary: This has a plug so it doesn't take up the power from your laptop. It is a good quality. My laptop recognizes it and so doesn't turn on the finger pad pointer. (I always had to manually turn off the pointer pad when I had a cheeper USB extension that didn't have its' own plug. Very Satisfied!
Summary: Ably serves the purpose why I purchased it: To provide additional USB slots for my new desktop to access all my peripheral storage devices as well as giving additional reach for the connections now plugged in beneath my desk.
Summary: Power part of hub works still works, but pc connection died after a few week or so. Tried all 6 USB ports on pc, but USB drive, Garmin watch and Fitbit all quit connecting to the pc. Returned to store for a refund..
Summary: I have used this USB Hub since June 2011. It was hit with a power spike, and of course stopped working. I immediately purchased the same USB Hub again because it works, and so many others looked risky based on customer reviews. I have it hooked up, and it functions perfectly!
Summary: I bought this device to use on the desk in the sound / video booth at my church. The desk top is very cramped and I needed a small device. This met that criteria. However, my experience so far has not been good. It does not always funcion when I plug a flash drive intto it.
Summary: I needed a USB hub to replace the very worn hubs on the computer front panel. I plugged this hub into an empty back panel USB port and went to work. I later used a couple of small velcro pads and attached it to the base of my monitor, so now I can plug what ever in with one hand.
