Summary: This compact hub works well. The LED indicator for powered state is nice. I really like the form factor. The only issue is the fast charging ports do not work when a PC is connected. This was a major selling point for me since I have to charge a lot of devices. As soon as a PC is connected, the charge current is limited to the standard rate, which defeats the purpose. Minus 1 star. Otherwise, a good product at a good price.
Pros: Small form factor, lots of ports, powered option with LED indicator, fast charging ports, nice finish
Cons: Fast charge ports do not work with PC on/connected
Summary: Needed a powered USB hub for my Raspberry Pi, and this works wonders. I use it for a wireless dongle, two XBox 360 controllers and a keyboard, and everything works fantastic. With all those peripherals plugged in, though, it tends to "capsize", because of all the weight in the front. I can't get it to lay flat on my desk.
Pros: Lots of ports, powered
Cons: Very light, it can't lay flat with items plugged in
Summary: I have had this a few weeks now and it works great. Fast charging ports are a bonus but the unit weighs so little that it has a hard time laying flat. Other than that it does what it is suppose to do.
Pros: Nice size, fast charging ports, lots of ports
Cons: weight is so low that the unit lifts up in the front because of the wires
Summary: There's not a lot to say about this product. It's such a basic product, there should be no reason it wouldn't work as advertised. And there isn't. It works fine, absolutely no problems or hassles after a month of use. Basically, it comes down to ''Works good, lasts a long time''. I gave features and performance a neutral rating because performance is defined by the USB spec and features are, with a product like this, basic.
