Summary: Pro's: - Many ports - Powered - Detachable mini-usb (unpowered) for travel. Con's: - Crappy build quality - Detachable bit doesn't work - Can't handle 1A current loads very well. Summary: I bought this as a companion USB system for a Raspberry PI. It failed miserably, due to it's reluctance to actually power anything which requires power (e.g. wifi dongles, USB external drives).

Summary: Arrived in time, The top connector is unfortunately a bit shaky... But all my external drives connected to the base station work fine. The removable part for the notebook is a good idea but you have to make it sits well or the USB stick don't work properly.
