Excerpt: The included cable lets the hub lie flat as I wanted. But the USB connection to my laptop becomes "loose", and I need to remove and replug occasionally.Don't know if it's the plug or my port.The price was right.
Excerpt: The Belkin mobile hub is a lifesaver for adding more USB space to poorly designed pc's. Not only can you attach it to the back of a pc and use the added connections at the front, but you can carry the hub with you while vacationing or working elsewhere and be able to attach devices that some laptops don't have space for.
Summary: So far so good. I am able to add my phone. tablet, 2 backup drives a flatbed scanner, a slide scanner and a printer. Everything seems to be running perfectly so far - one external drive though might be suffering some speed issues due to the Hub, but not significant enough for me to complain. Let's see how long they last!
Summary: I bought two of these units to hook up webcams to a pair of Raspberry Pi computers for keeping an eye on my elderly Mom who has Alzheimer's. This hub is on the Raspberry Pi compatibility list and the units I bought have performed flawlessly. They've been in continuous operation for over three months. This is a great hub if you need to power a couple of USB devices that may exceed the output capacity of the built-in USB ports on the Pi.
