Summary: Targus products, in the main, are both inexpensive and handy. the 4 Port USB 3.0 Hub, with its' powered capability, both expands and enhances my USB 3.0 upgrade I just finished. It sntalles fast, ready to go in literally seconds. Very pleased indeed.
Summary: This 4 port 3.0 USB hub is very small, lightweight, and stylish. All I did was plug in the printer, 2 external drives and a set of speakers, and everything works perfectly. No installation. It couldn't be any easier. This is #2 top reviewed and recommended. I went with this one because of a lot of negative reviews on Amazon on the #1 recommended. The true test will be on how long all the ports and the hub will stay operational.
Excerpt: I can use more than one device simultaneously trough the hub with no problems. My only complaint about the hub is the small bump used as a clip on the bottom of the USB plug. It requires you to place the plug in the lower port of a computer because the plug will not fit above another plug. This is not a big deal. If you are constantly going behind your computer to switch cables, the Targus 4- port USB hub will be wort the money.
Summary: Although my computer had many USB connects they were in the back of the computer except one in front The hub allows me to download picture from camera, use a flash drive and have my scanner all at one time.
Summary: This hub does what it says on the tin, and is relatively inexpensive. Mainly purchased due to inaccessibility of ports on back of pc. The only disadvantage is the very short cable, so if you need it to run from the rear of the pc to a more accessible position, you may have difficulties.
