and while it is an awesome, and sexy hub

Aaron Irons, Amazon
7 September 2014
  • Summary: Got this to work with my Raspberry Pi and Mimo USB monitor, and while it is an awesome, and sexy hub, it does not register as a high speed hub according to the debian wheezy OS. It does not provide enough power to power a keyboard, mouse and the USB monitor. But is a solid unit, and they by no means claim it works--but certain forums recommended this one for the Mimo monitors, but it does not work.

Not enough space between ports

RedPanda, Amazon
12 July 2012
  • Summary: This hub has a very nice slim form; however, the space between ports is narrow. Some USB devices are wide - wider than a regular USB cable - and that may render the ports next to them unusable. Examples of such devices are the Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Go! USB Sound Card, Microsoft Keyboards and Mice receivers, and others.

Useful computer accessory but plenty of capable, cheaper alternatives available.

D. Chou "THE Savvy Consumer", Amazon
26 July 2011
  • Summary: Who doesn't have tons of gadgets to plug into USB ports? e.g., External Hard Drive, Printer, Digital Camera, Thumb Drive, Media Card Reader, Blue Tooth devices, Smartphone, MP3 Player, HD Video Cam, mini LED lights, mini fans, (you name it), etc. This PC/Mac, desktop/laptop compatible, AC powered, 7-Port USB hub really comes in handy when plugging in multiple USB devices. Everything is self-explanatory and clear cut; just plug it in and use.

New look for old idea...

atlas48, PriceGrabber
13 September 2006
  • Summary: The AC plug on the device does not have a "snap" or resistance fit to hold the male end in place. The female end seems a tad too shallow and allows the plug to loose connection if the cord is hit or the device is moved alot. The devices has well designed vertical recievers that allows a quick connection of jump-drives of any size. The ports in the back allow adequate connection of regular cables. This devices was easy to instal and was flawless in performance.
  • Pros: Two vertical ports that are spaced well for larger devices, sturdy and won't shift while devices are attached.
  • Cons: Not the best of designs for AC plug on device, ports on rear are close together.

There may be more mobile ones on the market

  • Excerpt: I bought this USB hub as I ran out of the built in buses in my laptop - they were already being used by my mouse, keyboard, external hard drives, camcorders etc... This hub, as it was able to convert 1 hub into 4 meant that I could connect many more devices to my system. The design of this hub is... ok... I have seen better in the past and this is quite chunky to many I have used before.

Arbeitet nicht zuverlässig

  • Summary: Ich habe an den Belkin 7Port Hub dauerhaft 4 Geräte angeschlossen: Maus, Tastur, McKey und einen Fußschalter. Mit Logitech-Maus und Microsoft-Tastatur hat der Hub laufend Probleme. Da hilft dann nur noch abstecken, warten und wieder anschließen. Manchmal funktioniert der Hub gar nicht mehr, dann muss ich erst alle Geräte abstecken und wieder anstecken. Das ist lästig. Noch mal würde ich dieses Produkt nicht kaufen.

  • Summary: E’ sempre in aumento il numero di dispositivi dotati di ingresso usb e, nel mio caso, sempre meno le porte che funzionano perfettamente nel mio portatile … e non solo nel mio! Tempo fa, poiché il problema riguardava un po’ l’intera famiglia, mio padre ha comprato questo piccolo dispositivo per ampliare la quantità di porte usb. Il marchio Belkin Il marchio Belkin è molto conosciuto nell’ambito dell’elettronica.

Hub is ok maar erg kort adaptersnoer

Gert-Jan , Conrad
9 April 2011
  • Summary: De hub doet wat hij moet doen. Hij is ook lekker klein. Een groot nadeel vind ik de lengte van het bijgeleverde netsnoer. Dit is nog geen 90cm en dat is in veel omstandigheden veel te kort. Ik had liever 1,5 meter gezien.
