Summary: I've been using several of these hubs for the last 5-7 years, but when used in connection with more than 4 external (2.5") HDD-s, ALL PREVIOUS HUBS FAILED in 8-14 months. The design is unable to support the power requirements of the HDD-s. Once the hub fails, its operation becomes intermittent. With a life-time warranty, I have had at least three or four of them replaced already. The warranty process is not "user friendly".
Summary: I wasted $40 on this thing and my computer never recognized it. Belkin's website support doesn't even list the product so you can't download a driver or anything. Horrible product if you actually want to use it as a hub.
Summary: I added more USB items to my computer so had to get more USB ports. Had one of these already so I ordered another. Now I have the USB ports needed. They don't take up more room on the desk because they stack on top of each other. Two is the most you can stack. They are self powered so no power is taken away from my laptop.
Summary: I bought this to plug it into the wall and then conveniently charge six devices for my family in one place. However, the wall converter doesn't put out enough power to charge a new iPhone 5 or iPod, or the new smaller pin adapter for the iPhone and iPod won't let enough energy through. I say this last point since an older 30-pin iPad of mine charged just fine, even with a Jambox and a Galaxy phone also plugged in at the same time.
Summary: I ordered this for my Macbook Pro. It worked for a few minutes, then died completely. Very frustrating experience, along with having to try to find a UPS outlet to return it. That's okay if you live in a major centre. It's more complicated (too complicated) when you are not. Apple needs to take a lesson from other cross border companies on returning an item. I'll have to pay about 25% of the cost of this item just to return it. Not worth it. Buy it locally.
Summary: This is a product that simply stated is perfect. I installed it without a support call in 10 minutes, and it works great! I would definitely recommend this to a friend. However, you will need the latest iOS.
Summary: I was looking for an inexpensive and reliable USB port expander as I was running out of space on my PC. I have used other Belkin equipment that has performed well. This new unit has performed as expected and provided new USB access at my fingertips. Very satisfied with my purchase!
