Same design, same overheating problems

john M., Newegg
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Of the two I have on hand, one has been modded with a heat sink and still it reads over 105F on average in a 65F room, The other is well over that under use without a heat sink.
  • Pros: 7 usb ports, yea!
  • Cons: Surprised these are still on the market! Known fact that the USB controller chip in these overheats and should of at least had a massive heatsink & air flow.

Pure garbage!!!

Ralph M., Newegg

  • Summary: Wish newegg would allow a 0 Egg rating... Look elsewhere....
  • Pros: It works fine for a couple of months but that's it.
  • Cons: Purchased one ports started dieing in a couple of months. Called belkin for RMA, they sent me a new one. It too died in a couple of months. Just google this hub and you'll see the number of complaints. I finally gave up and got a rosewill hub... which works beautifully.

better choices

RICHARD N., Newegg

  • Summary: It's a shame really, the product was designed well in terms of ergonomics and capacity. too bad, but ruin away from this one.
  • Pros: Convenient, nice form factor
  • Cons: Oh, where to start. The lifetime warranty doesn't make up for the fact that they die about every 6 months. Whjo knows what goes on during the failure mode, and what other damge it could do. I'm mailing this one back and trying another brand

Dropping Connections

Christopher L., Newegg
18 April 2011
  • Summary: Either I got a really bad one or they have some bad design flaws.
  • Pros: Powered
  • Cons: This model has never been able to take more than 3-4 items plugged in at a time. If you add more, it will not show up.

4 dead in 2 years, Junk!

Jared W., Newegg
29 November 2009
  • Pros: Indication lights for when usb devices are plugged in. Lots of ports.
  • Cons: I bought 2 of these a few years ago, and I've had them die twice each. They get to hot when stacked, and after a few months they just die. At least there is a lifetime warranty on them, but the shipping costs add up after having to send them back 4 times. Stay away from these.

Not Cheap and Not Worth It.

Richard T., Newegg
10 July 2009
  • Summary: My recommendation would be to look at a different manufacturer as my experience with Belkin is DISMAL.
  • Pros: Compact, stackable.
  • Cons: Short life span. I've owned 2 of these units and both died - 1 in just over a year and 1 in less than 6 months. I replaced them with the Belkin MyEssentials 7 port USB hubs. Both of them died in less than a year.

Warning!

Anonymous, Newegg
15 May 2009
  • Summary: I owned 4 of these hubs,2 older and 2 more recent. 2 have died. They get very hot,especially when stacked ( I quit stacking them). Unreliable power out,despite huge powersupply bricks. Frequent connection issues. One of the newer ones just killed 2 flash drives and smells bad.
  • Pros: Pros:great form design! Newer ones (3-4 mo) leds only light on active ports not all.
  • Cons: Cons:Unreliable/overheating,has killed other devices,if you stack more than 2 blocks access to top ports
