Where's the USB plug?
26 March 2014
Excerpt: There's no usb cable with which to plug into the computer. Normally I would think that such a thing was included. I trust Belkin and Im sure it will work just fine once I get all the parts. Just a small ugg.
Excerpt: I'm generally happy having a hub with a cord sufficiently long that I can leave it on a small table near where I usually use my laptop, but the male part that plugs into the laptop's USB port is not engineered properly and it doesn't make a tight fit. Consequently it tends to come out on its own when I move the laptop from my lap to the low table where I keep it when I'm not using it.
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.
Summary: This Belkin USB hub works as expected. It's a powered hub, which means you can use it to power-up USB chargeable devices, which is a nice feature. I just have two main complaints on this product. First, the USB ports are too close together (there's two on each side). This is fine in most cases, but if you have a device that's wider than normal at the USB connection, then you might have trouble accessing the next-door port.
Works great, but so light it tends to "run away" from me

Summary: This is a cute little powered USB hub that looks really nice next to my husband's silver and black MacBook Pro or my white MacBook. I think it's been specifically designed with that Apple aesthetic in mind, which even rival PC companies are starting to adopt. It powers up extremely quickly when connected, and devices are speedily recognized by my computer when plugged into the hub.
Summary: This USB hub is a great product and comes with two cables not described online, a USB cable and a power cable. The scimpy literature is vague about the cables, but I surmise that the power cable is only needed when using the hub as a charger. I use the hub for USB connection and have not needed the power cable.
Summary: Come ben sapete la Belkin è un marchio innovativo, da un paio d'anni sul mercato offre una serie di prodotti di base accessori, di grande qualità e funzionalità. Per uno di miei netbook ho acquistato una Hub esterno, a quattro porte. Ho scelto questo perchè il suo prezzo mi è sembrato competitivo e conveniente, per soli 8.99€ presso il punto vendita di zona Media World ne ho acquistato uno.
Pros: amplia le connessioni USB dei nostri computer, autoalimentata, compatibilità
