nice little USB hub!

Robert M., Newegg
25 June 2011
  • Summary: All connectors fit in nice and snug. I think this is really a very well-made unit for the price.
  • Pros: Well first off, I think that for the price paid, $18.99 and free shipping from Newegg, this is a fantastic deal. It works very well and my computer recognized all of the devices I plugged in. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium and it had no trouble whatsoever. I dual boot with Windows XP as well an...
  • Cons: The unit is very light, almost too light. It tends to slide around on the top of my computer case if the wires get moved. It would have been nice if the unit had a rubberized bottom or something to prevent it from sliding. It's not really a big deal. I'll probably just put some two-faced tape on ...

Good little device

Derek B., Newegg
7 May 2011
  • Summary: It's also the cheapest powered hub I could find, and it does not disappoint.
  • Pros: provides ample power for my external 2.5" IDE drive that I keep hooked up to my Wii (drive uses 2 USB ports.) Also powers my Wii's charging station. Of course, you have to hook up the supplied power adapter to do so, but that's the nature of the beast. frees up a port on the Wii for my ethernet a...
  • Cons: It's not really a con but... It's kind of weird that there's a USB port on the top of the hub. Guess it looks kinda cool with a flash drive in it... Maybe makes sense for really large USB devices that would otherwise hinder the use of another port? Maybe?

Not enough power

John C., Newegg
8 April 2011
  • Summary: I have tried it with two USB hard drives. A Western Digital Pasport 320GB and an old Segate 100GB in a Rosewill enclouser. The WD drive will not even power up. The Rosewill unit will lose connection as soon as a file transfer starts. I own the black version of this.
  • Pros: Works fine with my thumb drives, camera, phone and other low power devices.
  • Cons: Does not supply enough power for USB hadr drives.

USB hub

William A., Newegg
21 March 2011
  • Pros: Plugged into my APPLE WiFi router and then plugged my printer and an external hard drive into the hub. I can now access both by hard drive data and the printer on my network. SWEET!
  • Cons: None so far

  • Pros: Works perfect. I use 3 of the 4 slots every day and haven't had a problem yet. Great for those devices you have that have terribly SHORT usb cords!

Hub has some odd problems, throws USB errors on OS X 10.6

ArvidTomayko-Peters, Newegg
11 February 2011
  • Summary: I would not recommend this hub, because obviously it is doing something wrong. Maybe its fine with PCs, I dunno, but my mac has always had trouble with it. Power supply is fine though - I now use it with another hub that didn't come with one.
  • Pros: Cheap, comes with power supply, port on top is useful for flash drives
  • Cons: this hub does weird things with my macbook pro: I use a power strip to power down most of my peripherals (including this hub) when I put my computer to sleep when i leave for work or at night. With this hub in my chain of hubs, if I turn off the power strip, the mac will wake from sleep immediate...

Saved my USB headset

Anonymous, Newegg
6 February 2011
  • Summary: The only real reason I needed to buy this was because (according to various users of the Microsoft Xbox 360 Controller for windows) my computer's internal USB hub did not have enough electricity to completely power the controller and my usb headset at the same time (which I believe is bull, since...
  • Pros: - The base of the hub seems to hold on nicely to any surface - They were smart in putting a cover on the top port - The power adapter only takes up one slot on my power strip, unlike a lot of other power adapters which seem to take up two or three. - Was recognized instantly by Windows XP Home SP3
  • Cons: - Included data cord seems just a tad bit short, although fortunately the port on the back of the hub (for connecting to the computer) is standard enough that I can use a cord from my video camera instead.

Great Compact and Powered HUB

Brian L., Newegg
6 December 2010
  • Summary: Used for almost 2 months. Still very stable and has made plugging devices in and out (which I do a lot) very easy and (mostly) hassle free. I highly recommend it. So far it's worked fine across Windows XP and 7, as well as multiple Linux distros.
  • Pros: 1. Very compact and easy to place it somewhere convenient. 2. Connects with a separate mini-USB cable. I got a 10 ft cable to connect this HUB to a rather distant PC, and it works with 4 power-hungry devices perfectly at that distance. Because it doesn't have a specific cable hard-wired to it, yo...
  • Cons: 1. Did this tiny thing need that large a power plug? It's not huge, but it blocks nearby sockets on my surge protector. 2. Due to it's small size, it tends to slide around a lot. 3. The mini-USB cable that connects the HUB to your computer can get pulled out pretty easily by accident. Though I'm ...
