Mediocre

Matthew D., Newegg
13 May 2012
  • Summary: The power adapter is not actually necessary as it can pull power over USB. I found that my hibernation problems went away after throwing out the AC power adapter.
  • Pros: It *usually* works. Has seven ports and does what a hub is expected to do.
  • Cons: It doesn't like working when my computer resumes from hibernation. It's fixed by unplugging and plugging back in, which isn't terrible but it is inconvenient.

New version actually 2 4 ports Hubs

Michael K., Newegg
11 May 2012
  • Pros: works in most situations.
  • Cons: Beware... The new version (black) is actually two 4 port hubs daisy-chained. 3 ports are from the first level hub and 4 ports from the second level hub. This can cause problems in some cases. The original (silver/gray) was a true 7 port hub.

Has problems when multiples device simultaneously are in used

Toland H., Newegg
11 November 2011
  • Pros: Powered. Even with 7 ports, power was never an issue. Tons of ports for all your devices.
  • Cons: Frequent disconnections when multiple usb devices are active. I would then have to unplug the USB hub and replug it back in. I had to move my USB mouse and keyboard off it because losing them became too frequent.

Intermittent

Joshua Z., Newegg
7 May 2011
  • Summary: Haven't had much luck with D-link in the past, bums me out that this hub has been giving me problems.
  • Pros: 7 ports, not too large
  • Cons: Works half of the time with my macbook pro. I bought this so I could power multiple devices but apparently it puts too much stress on my laptop. The hub shuts the USB port off, and unfortunately the hub won't charge devices unless you plug it into a computer.

Momentary Lapses

Dave K., Newegg
14 February 2011
  • Pros: External Powered Standard USB Cable 7 Ports Good build quality
  • Cons: Intermittent connection failures - I stopped using it with my Logitech mouse because after a reboot sometimes my iMac wouldn't detect the mouse. So I connected other things. USB sound card, printers, scanner, etc. Most things it worked with fine, but devices that require a constant connection wer...

Not for iPhone/iTouch charging

Lawrence H., Newegg
27 January 2011
  • Summary: wish I had just got another 4 portunit.
  • Pros: Compact 7 port
  • Cons: Replaced a 4 port hub, (different manufacturer), that did charge iphones. This D-link will not. quote from D-Link support. "We would like to inform you that you cannot charge the iphone touch using DUB-H7."

OK but with frustrations

Paul S., Newegg
14 January 2009
  • Pros: Compact size. Usually works.
  • Cons: Frequently, connected items do not automatically mount when the computer starts. Hard drives, scanners and other accessories have to be power-cycled or unplugged/replugged before they are "seen" by the computer

  • Summary: Mixed feeling. I'm using this hub with a MBP 2012 and sometimes it works but sometimes I have to reconnect to the USB port in order for the attached devices to show only computer.

not so sure about this 7 port hub

trekkerkev, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: When attached to an old windows 7 HP laptop, it caused the system to boot much more slowly than normal.. even hang sometimes. Older chipsets were known to barf when even a USB flash drive was installed, but I have never seen this behaviour in a usb hub before.

An average looking, functional, high speed hub

mwaddington, Dooyoo
12 June 2007
  • Excerpt: The DUB-H7 allows you to plug in 7 USB 2.0 devices at once, great for a laptop or PC with limited built-in ports. The unit comes with its own narrow style power supply, which doesn’t interfere with other plugs in adjacent sockets, and USB 6ft A-B lead to connect the hub to the computer.
