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
Summary: I just ordered this the 31st of March, & according to the delivery schedule I saw of it, it was scheduled to arrive at my store around next Monday, April 9th..but I'm super happy to say that got here the 4th, Wednesday! Only 3 days after I ordered it! Awesome!! And so far, it works great!! Thanks & God Bless!
Summary: I love my DLink 7 port Hub. It is plug n play and well designed. I had a Belkin 7 port hub and hated it. The cord would not stay tight and it was poorly designed and awkward to use. This has tight connectors and the sideways design of the port easily accommodates up to 7 usb devices. It is easy to use and easy to place with the sleek box design.
