Summary: This hub stinks. It has a plug, but does NOT act like a powered USB hub. Anything plugged into it will get dropped occasionally, particularly SD card readers, iphones etc. It's junk, 50%+ of the time I plug things into it it doesn't recognize them at all. GARBAGE.
Summary: I purchased this item because I am pretty much using all my USB ports, and I liked the idea of having high-speed ports for my high-speed USB devices. When I plugged it in, not only did it not carry my keyboard or my printer (it was like they weren't plugged in at all), but it also killed my other USB ports -- none of them worked after I plugged it in -- even after I unplugged it.
Summary: I purchased this product from a retailer, but returned it in favor of a 7-port StarTech hub from Amazon. As some other reviewers have noted (elsewhere on Amazon and on other ratings sites), this hub is unreliable. After a day or two, it dropped its connection to the computer, and I had to unplug the USB connection to get it to be recognized again.
