Summary: Bought this to help remove USB clutter on the back of my mac for a music studio. With mics that require power such as an Apogee or Blue Spark Digital USB. The 7 port hub allows me to get all the connections off the back of the computer and under neath the desk where the other Music Interface equipment is. the 2 powered ports are great! I originally ordered the Grey one (as they come in 2 colors) but i received the black one. The Grey one has the LED lights for each port.
Excerpt: The primary reason why I needed to get this was to save myself some daily pain.<br /><br />My workstation is kept under my desk, so I was constantly having to lean down (sometimes hitting my head) to swap devices. This is from the front ports!<br /><br />The D-Link 7 Port hub is extremely versatile. With 7 Ports (2 of which are "Charging" ports), it allows the flexibility you need to pretty much hook everything up at once easily.
Pros: Easily Expanded, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Reliable, Small
