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...

  • Summary: The USB contacts on this hub are loose, resulting in intermittent connections. Frequent cutting in and out of the connections (when the hub was moved, e.g., during addition/removal of other connectors) became annoying and once required me to reboot my iMac, which never happened before in 1-1/2 years...

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

  • Summary: The USB hub itself was fine but it did not come with a Belkin adapter and the adapter made a very loud humming sound. I returned it because I could not stand the sound.

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.

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.
