Keep losing mouse control

Daniel E Mercure "Daniel Mercure", Amazon
30 January 2014
  • Summary: I tried this on a 17" Macbook pro with an external monitor and USB keyboard and mouse. I try to use the laptop in clamshell mode, but this hub wouldn't recognize the mouse on bootup. It also disconnected the keyboard at random times.

Bleeds power back to the USB port.

Robert F., Newegg
6 January 2013
  • Pros: It works.
  • Cons: It back powers the USB port you plug it in to. This is not to the USB spec. I don't know what the consequences are, but it makes me nervous. I would be concerned about potential danger to the system. This is a common defect in USB hubs. If I kept it, I'd NEVER hot plug it. I'd have it plugged int...

Incompatible with External Hard drives

Tyler, Staples
12 November 2011
  • Excerpt: This device plugged in and allows me to use my headset and mouse in the same USB port. However, when I try to plug in my external hard drives, even with the power cord plugged in, it doesn't deliver enough power to the hard drives. I will be returning it the first chance I am able.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy to Use, Fast
  • Cons: Fragile, Huge Power Supply, Long cords, Poor Quality

Broke after several months

Rob L., Newegg
28 August 2011
  • Pros: Worked fine while it lasted
  • Cons: Broke after several months of light use. Power cord is only about 18"- why do USB hub manufacturers always insist on this? So frustrating.

Works when it wants too

Kent C., Newegg
31 July 2011
  • Summary: If your a Canadian, according to the Belkin site, if you send it back for replacement, you'll be responsible for brokerage fees and duties. That's unusual as most companies I've dealt with when their cheap peripherals fail just send you a new unit and they're marked as warranty replacements so no...
  • Pros: Its small and works well, when it works.
  • Cons: Usually won't be detected when coming out of sleep mode or rebooting. You have to pull the power cable out and plug it back in and hope Windows will properly detect it (which it often doesn't). Other than that....

It works, but only when it works...

David K., Newegg
16 July 2011
  • Pros: It worked great for about a year. This is a very, small, light usb hub, that comes with a power adapter, which is a plus.
  • Cons: It only worked for a year. In the past, I've had much better experiences with the longevity of Belkin products.
