  • Summary: It is a very nice port. The only complaint is that my wireless keyboard and wireless mouse will not work being plugged into it. I have tried 3 different ones and none of them will work. Both of them have to be plugged into the 2 USB ports on the front of the computer, thus leaving no open ports in the front. Everything else that I have plugged into it seems to work just fine.

  • 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 of use. The hub is very small; its compact design might contribute to the problem.

Incompatible with External Hard drives

Tyler, Staples

  • 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. I am very disappointed.
  • 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.

Altered design leads to inferior perf.

  • Summary: We purchased this model Belkin hub in 2005 (exactly the same model number and appearance). It worked flawlessly and provided excellent suppression of electrical noise present in our application. An identical model purchased in October, 2009 looks the same on the outside, but has been totally redesigned electrically (we disassembled it) to reduce cost. The present design no longer filters noise, but amplifies it, making the unit useless to us.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Poor noise filtering
